  • For all those Canadians out there....

    Hope that you've had (and are still having) a wonderful Canada Day!



    Kinda surprised that I'm the first to post on this, actually!

      Just kidding.

      It's like the the 4th of July here in the US. July 1 is Canada's birthday.

      So Happy B Day Canada. We Americans pick on Canada because you don't wrap yourselves in your flag, but we know you all kick *ss and take names with the best of us.

            To make the things more amusing, before this, the only special thing I knew about 7/1 is that it is the B-day of the Chinese Communist Party...

            Attn to ALL my opponents:

            If you sent me your turn and after 24 hours, you still did not get anything from me, please be sure to post in the forum to ask for what is going on.

            Remember, I ALWAYS reply within 24 hours, even if I do NOT have time to play my turn, in which case I will at least send you email to tell you that I will have to play it later, but I DO receive your turn.

              It's actually called 'Dominion Day' for 'Dominion of Canada'.

              But the libs came in and changed it like everything else and ruined this country.

              So Cheerful Dominion oops Canada Day!!!

                Can't argue about the Liberals (HATE the liberals, especially with me living in Alberta), but I like the sound of Canada Day better.

                    Although I loathe to defend Chretien, Mulroney was far, far worse.

                    So if my options are Mulroney or Chretien, I'll take Chretien.

                    Although if we mix it up a little and give us the following options:

                    Mulroney
                    Chretien
                    A rock with a bow-tie

                    I'd go with the rock w/ a bow-tie.

                    But look on the bright side, at least our PM isn't connected with the mafia, bribing judges and calling German government officials concentration camp leaders .

                    So could be worse.

                      LMAO!!!!

                      I'd like to nominate the rock in my front garden for PM. I just need a tie and we'll have a better leader than Mulroney or Chretien.

                      ps. Don't see how Chretien was better than Mulroney though I loathe to defend Mulroney. But we've been buggered with leaders for decades.

                      I think it's time for Mike Harris to stop the feud on the right once and for all call it what it should be...The Conservative Party of Canada and make us strong again.

                      Cheers

                      ps. much prefer Dominion Day

                        One word:

                        debt

                        Another word:

                        economy

                        And, not that it was the deciding factor or anything, but Mulroney was even more arrogant than Chretien, which is something of a miracle .

                        Chretien himself needs to go but I'll probably vote Liberal again since he's finally stepping down. Afterall, we've got the fear-mongering Canadian "family values" Alliance (who make a habit of mailing me these dishonest political surveys every two weeks - eg. THE LIBERALS REFUSE TO RAISE THE AGE OF CONSENT FOR SEX TO 16 FROM 14. IS STEPHEN HARPER RIGHT/THE LIBERALS WRONG TO WANT TO PROTECT CHILDREN FROM EXPLOITATION? YES/NO) on one side vs the New "budget? whats a budget?" Democratic Party on the other.

                        Then of course there's the PCs and I might have considered voting for them if Joe Clark was still around, but MacKay doesn't really impress me like Clark does/did and ideologically I'm closer to the Liberals on most issues.

                          I don't know how it is in Canada but here in the USA the 'family values' crowd continues to support economic policies that will further disrupt families and weaken values that develop from stable communities.

                              I wouldn't really say thats the case here (though without knowing exactly what kind of programs you refer to its difficult to say).

                              Almost, almost. Less than 1% and Quebec would have been free.

                              But the BQ (the separtist party) is no longer in power. Quebecers seemed to have lost interest for the moment.

                              I think our plan to let them print their signs in French first and bigger than the English text has placated them for now .
