  1. careful Jimmy, you are starting to sound like a Conservative with posts like this
  2. Even some who werent lost in the cracks..... i had a friend who came here from England on a work visa. Was here for 5 years with a decent paying job, paying taxes, never got in trouble with the law and was applying for PR and was denied, tried applying for an extension on his work visa and was also denied. The owner of his company wrote and called the gov't pleading to allow him to stay because he was such a valuable member of his work ( he ended up in the management ) but to no avail. Was given a date and sent home. Yet we have our RCMP waiting at known illegal points of entry to help carry luggage over and our country is paying for them to stay in 5 star hotels. Makes you shake your head at how backwards we have it....
  3. Regardless of whatever political spin people want to put on this, over 70k people lost there jobs right before Christmas and thats a sad thing. I really hope our government can put aside differences and start doing things that will benefit the people instead of worrying about scoring political points.
  4. I dont think it was much of a concern to most people because oil prices were good and business was rolling. Like anything, people only notice when things start to go bad. While I agree JT is getting some wrongful blame he didnt help himself out by giving speeches talking about killing the oil and gas sector in Canada.
  5. For someone who is old, you dont read very well do you ? I called him useless on the PP ! I then backed it up with how much better our PP has been with Hughes ever since he replaced Edler on the number 1 unit. If you want to throw a tantrum and insults, atleast argue the actual topic which was Edler on the PP
  6. If you read my original post, I was talking about him playing on the PP. My comment had nothing to do with the rest of his play or how many minutes he plays
  7. Actually several posters on here have admitted that Edler would be much better suited as a 3/4 d-man . He was thrown into a top pairing role because we didnt have anyone else. Canucks were 22nd in the league last year on the PP and it has been a puck moving D-man has been a huge need for this team. Our PP this year started off poorly and the only switch that was made was Hughes for Edler and there has been a noticeable difference. basement dweller poster ? are you still in high school by any chance ?
  8. Canucks first and 2nd fav is whoever is playing Calgary that night....
  9. Our PP was struggling when Edler was on the point at the start of the season..... Its really turned around ever since Hughes was moved up to the number 1 unit. Edler , much like Ohlund, was kind of thrown in that situation out of a not really having anyone else. I find there to be a huge difference in puck carrying and not rushing the shot or play with Hughes as opposed to Edler who more times than not would bumble the puck at the blue line or blasting the puck into the defenders shin pads
  10. A big part of this is how useless Edler was on the PP. He was constantly thrown on the number 1 unit but doesnt have the offensive mindset that Hughes has
  11. Blake plays on my hockey team when he's in town so im sure i could set up a meeting
  12. I think this is exactly what Alberta wants though. Partnership of some kind. For years and years Alberta has been paying billions to other provinces which is fine because its for the greater good of the country, however if other provinces want to reap the benefits of Alberta's money, do you not think they should then be supporting them as well ? Is it fair that Quebec recieves billions from Alberta but then buys oil from Saudi Arabia ? Right now, pipelines are probably the most efficient and safest way to export oil yet its a fight to get it done. All this money that could be made, would be a great way of funding greener, and safer environmental projects. So instead of fighting it or not buying from Alberta why dont we work together to figure out a solution that benefits everyone ?
  13. So until then, we will just continue to import oil from countries who have no regulations and substandard human rights issues ?
  14. Yes, and no...... I do agree that Scheer will need to be replaced but I dont think a different leader would have helped much. If people can still reward JT with a vote for the Liberals after all these scandals then there wouldnt be anything that can sway there mind.
  15. Will Edler ever be able to take a shot from the point and it doesnt go into the shin pads of the opposing forward ?
  16. since they are good friends, maybe Obama will give JT permission to dress as him for halloween .....
  17. first pictures are emerging from the debate.....
  18. While I dont disagree, it then really makes someone question the morals of the Liberals who allow Trudeau to remain the leader other than they know he gives them the best chance to win. What is the total up to now ? 4 different pics of JT dressed in black face and when asked why he never came forward and mentioned it he replied that he was embarrassed. He made such a big deal about womens rights and believing women when they come out and claim sexual abuse but then turns around and uses an excuse of " she experienced it differently " when his own allegations of misconduct come out . Kent Hehr was removed from his cabinet position for the same allegations.
  19. Treliving came out today saying that one of the reasons it was a shorter deal and for less money than expected was because Tkachuk " could not and would not " allow his contract to be the reason one of his teamates was traded off. There were lots of stories that Brodie or Frolik would have to be moved when Tkachuk signed but he made sure that wouldnt happen. With stories like that, its easy to see why he was given an A so quickly and is a well respected in the locker room
  20. not to mention EP may not have been on anyone's radar. There were some serious concerns about his size. I believe Bob Mckenzie had him ranked 11th overall
  21. Tkachuk doesnt play with either of those players. He originally started on the 3rd line and worked his way up to the 2nd line.
  22. some pretty funny meme's going around right now.... just seen one where they are pressuring Faith Goldy to apologize for having drinks with a racist and then shows a picture of her and JT together
  23. Full out groping a girl in the picture as well ..... 2 strikes in 1 picture
