Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I am new here. So I don't know you or Ocean or anyone. But I thought Ocean made some good points.

OK, over and out.

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

OK how about back to topic? I will cease and desist if that is what you good folks want. I trust other will cooperate?

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Actually here we agree. But in my not so humble opinion it is a moot point. The separatists will always bitch and complain. They can never be happy.

My mama taught me at a tender age never to believe anything one reads on the internet.

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Thanks. Exactly my point. The disallowance clause is AFAIK still on the books. Why isn't it used then?

As far as the notwithstanding clause, well that is a real joke. Don't like having...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Quebec has always been the biggest whiner of the bunch. And it has been very successful. It has its own pension plan, taxation, and controls it's own immigration.

Why other provinces don't demand...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I don't find it the least amusing. I am giving my views. Take them or leave them. It matters not. This is not a black and white issue. There are shades of grey. Many.

Bottom line is that we both...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I am not misstating the facts. I still contend that the provinces have far too much power.

As far as federal powers are concerned, there is such a thing as a disallowance clause which the Feds...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Sorry but here I beg to differ. This is not spreading misinformation. Let's say we agree to disagree and leave it at that. Readers are free to do their own research which BTW they should.

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I am strong federalist and I really have no use for the whining provinces. But that was the deal which was made in 1867 and so I won't bellyache about it as it won't change ever.

Quebec has...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I disagree. Multiculturism does nothing. It is costly and unnnecessary; it is actually divisive and counterproductive.

I much prefer the Yanks who take the melting pot approach.

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I was in Ottawa for a year and didn't like it at all. Now I hasten to add this is not a criticism of Ottawa because I know some who simply adore the place.

I didn't.

I have been to every major...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

It might be an education for all to read though the canadian health care thread. It makes my point exactly. If one wants an opinion on likes or dislikes well it ain't that simple. It all depends...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I fail to see what I am dishing out. I have been polite, very civil, and there has been no name calling. It is not my style. And believe me I am not grumpy.

Whatever gave you that impression?

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Is this a cultural thing at this forum? Is there some sort of taboo here. Do not confuse being outspoken and direct with being nasty or agressive, insensitive, rude, whatever.
