The more the dollar drops, the less that personal debt is worth. It's all good news.

Lower interest rates are a-ok by me for now (as I still have half a million in real estate backed debt).

But really, I would be ok with some higher inflation as well.. meh.

That was the joke. I was poking subtle fun at D's lighthearted position. A good time had by all.

Still not too late to get out of the property market, AD.

Well, actually...it may be.

I've been out for the most part since late-2013 :mkbét: and the only unit I have left is rented at above market price until June 2016.

The number of poor policy choices by the Conservative government is pretty impressive when you consider they're led by a guy with an economics degree. Statistics is a pretty huge part of economics...

Justin really ought to campaign on this. Wasn't the polling pretty clearly in favour of the mandatory census when they scrapped it?

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-notebook/harpers-base-isnt-as-energized-on-census-poll-finds/article1380620/

The Angus Reid on-line survey also shows 53 per cent of Canadians believe the long-form census provides important information and should remain mandatory. This number has barely budged since the story broke in the summer; in July and August, 58 per cent of Canadians supported keeping the long-form census.


Worst part of all is their own support base didn't really want them doing it:

"Compared to other issues we've tracked recently, like the long-gun registry, I get the sense the Tory base isn't as energized on this issue," he said. "Whereas the long-gun registry highlighted division in NDP ranks, I find it interesting that nearly half of Tory voters (49 per cent) would support keeping the long-form census mandatory."

Mr. Mukerji noted that 41 per cent of Tories believe the government should reverse its decision.

Well boys, I'll give them Tories this much: it's a hell of a lot easier to campaign on your economic record when empirical evidence that may dispute your claims simply doesn't exist :voiceofreason:

There are a few things I really dislike about this legislation. Obviously the thought crime aspect of it is troubling. In addition to that, why are we targeting Jihadi terrorism instead of all terrorism? Also, why only terrorism? Why not just any serious violent crime? I'm still more worried about crazy people mass shootings than I am terrorism.

The other thing I really don't like is giving CSIS intervention powers. I like that they have to convince a police force to act on their information. Sure they're building in judicial oversight and sure it's limited intervention at this point, but once you set this precedent you've changed to rules to talking about how much they can do, rather than if they can at all. I worry it's a slippery slope.
