  1. He's probably just pissed off his political bedfellow Christy Clark lost her job, and doesn't want to fight as the sole conservative voice amongst liberals and democrats. (Note: Manitoba's premier is in a lot of hot doggie doo-doo at the moment, and is probably going to get fried soon, so even if Wall isn't the only conservative first minister, he will be soon enough )
  2. My wife already chose for us, but I can't help but wonder (because we don't plan on having kids) if her choice will ever come to fruition. In other words, no family or friends around to help execute the choice she made. And besides, who knows - maybe we'll end up on a flight like MH370 and our remains would never be found...?
  3. And yet the powers that be here still allow for this goof to be considered an acceptable source, while shutting down rumours by other people who have more credibility.
  4. It's not a true road trip if you're flying part of the way. ;)
  5. The NHL Striped Zebras, managed by Count Bettman, and coached by one of Colin Campbell's proteges, who will continue to deny the Canucks as they have the last couple of times the Canucks have made the finals.
  6. Which is exactly what Diefenbonehead did, and which is why Canada needs to correct that. Here's hoping that our leadership has bigger balls than Diefenbonehead, and isn't so goddamned myopic.
  7. I think the bigger question(s) would be: Would the Tre Kronor invite them to play for the team? ...and assuming they do, would the Sedins even accept?
  8. Sure, and that's fine, as the skilled workers (foreign or otherwise) would likely provide economic benefits to Canada from the wages they earn. Besides, as long as we have the clear foresight and political motivation to keep the project running, the benefits will ultimately outweigh the costs. Diefenbonehead crippled our country when he cancelled the project, creating not only the brain-drain that this revived project could correct, but also by placing our air defence reliance upon the Americans - who we can't really trust any more, as suggested by our Minister of Foreign Affairs.
  9. So, we'll just entice them back with a better salary and a universal health care system.
  10. Read my post carefully - I only said that we could, not that we will. However, every problem eventually has a solution, and I believe that with time our best and brightest will eventually come up with a solution to the "air superiority" issue you mention, just perhaps not in the form of a resurrected and modernized Avro Arrow. And if it is with the Avro Arrow, even better.
  11. So, in other words, Canada is already letting in what you consider to be undesirables at what is essentially an unsustainable rate to support the "Canadian dream". I would contend that we're actually overly restrictive when it comes to choosing who to let into the country. It doesn't help any that there are non-Indigenous people who grumble how the newcomers are nothing like themselves, as they fail to remember going back into their own ancestry that they themselves are immigrants to this land. What made them and their ilk "more acceptable" than those who they complain about? Anyways, I'll leave it at that, as this is already off on a tangent from the OP.
  12. And maintaining the status quo does not preclude devolution either.
  13. Into what? Devolve into diversity, instead of an anglo-saxon dominated society?
  14. I'd love for the program to be restarted and retrofitted to today's military needs, but knowing our neighbour to the south, they'll probably sic the ruskies on us to get us to behave and cancel the project again. Given the advancements of materials and aerospace engineering over the last half a century, I don't doubt that we could build a superior model of fighter jet that would kick the ass of any other fighter jet that wanted to engage us in a dogfight. :D
  15. I guess the cops must be used to running over animate objects.
