  1. I'm all for Canada being a leader in energy conservation but where is all this money going? Where is the evidence that this tax (or that ridiculous cap and trade bs) actually lowers carbon emitting? The only thing I see happening is provincial governments already planning on putting the excess money into general revenues when they start collecting $50 per ton in 5 years. These same criminals will use the revenue to finance rebates or reductions in corporate taxes- in essence just pulling more money out of the average Canadian's pocket and giving it straight to big corporations in order to stimulate economies and meanwhile emissions will keep rising.
  2. [Signing] Canucks sign F Jay Beagle [4 year x $3M AAV]

    Roussel and Beagle replace Dorsett and Dowd for an extra 3 mil. I don't get what all the whining is about.
  3. Lucky #7

    Bouchard looks like the safest pick outside of the top 3 but I wouldn't be sad to see us take Kotkaniemi. I think his ceiling is a lot higher than people think.
  4. [Report] Brian Burke stepping down from Flames organization

    Given Burke's resume they could call it "Corner Office"
  5. [Proposal] Bringing Home the BC Boy

    Bo Horvat already plays the 2C role, I'd rather keep Lind and draft/develop our own 1C.
  6. [Report] Brian Burke stepping down from Flames organization

    I can't believe its 2018. Just minutes after they part ways and already the comment sections on Sportsnet and Calgary sun news articles have idiots gloating over Brian's firing because of his work with LGBT awareness. I'm not going to paint all Flames fans with the same brush but holy cow guys (pun intended), get with the times.
  7. Finland Ends Universal Basic Income

    I think here in Canada we do a pretty good job (it's far from perfect) already with our social support systems. That being said, if we were to change or add to it I would rather see free or low cost post secondary education for Canadian citizens than more support for people who don't (or won't) contribute.
  8. Finland Ends Universal Basic Income

    The thought of the government massively raising taxes to support people who don't work or don't want to work is unappealing to me.
  9. Assessing the Canuck D: Some Interesting Numbers

    I say we bring them all back and pick first overall in the draft we're hosting.
  10. Lol, this is why I don't gamble
  11. [PGT] Vancouver Canucks vs. Edmonton Oilers

    Virtanen was carrying the puck and still pulled away
  12. [PGT] Arizona Coyotes vs. Vancouver Canucks

    The way the team has played for the Sedins these last 2 games almost makes me wonder what could have been if they had announced it earlier in the season. I guess that would be too out of character for them though, they never wanted anything to be about them. Great leaders, great game, great memory to cherish years from now.
  13. [PGT] Columbus Blue Jackets vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Entertaining game. Productive one for Jokinen, although watching him skate makes my eyes bleed.
  14. [PGT] Anaheim Ducks vs. Vancouver Canucks

    Not sure what all the crying's about, our odds of getting Dahlin are miniscule regardless off how low we finish thanks to the Oilers. Beyond him, there's no obvious "franchise players" to be had so why don't you all put down the sharp objects and go smoke a fatty. Everything will be ok.
