Maybe you got too large a refund last year, Joe.


My wife is part timing last few years so I got the income split benefit. Not everyone is as rich as you dog. The fact that Justin thinks I'm rich blows my mind.

Plus reducing fitness credit from 1000 per kid to 500 hurt. That's 2000 less in credits. It wasn't a big refund, but still something. Justin is going to introduce a new generation of fat kids.


Rich is a loaded term. You're upper middle class. You may just have too many kids, Joe.

Hmmm, I don't know. Olive skinned is what I usually go by. My kids certainly don't classify as white.

So this is about to mushroom into the largest scandal in Canadian history, correct?

Document forgery in financial industry more common than you'd think, past employees say

Former CIBC representative says '85% of sales staff' in her workplace forged documents, encouraged by manager

Employees in Canada's financial industry are speaking out about falsifying documents, telling Go Public that potentially criminal acts — like forging and photocopying customer signatures, adding initials to blank documents and using Wite-Out to conceal information — is more common than most people would think.

yall should be this guy:

https://thewalrus.ca/the-rise-and-fall- ... t-con-man/

He sent a threatening letter to Gary Bettman, the commissioner of the nhl, complaining about the “significant financial losses” he and his family had ­suffered at the hands of the league—­losses I’ve never seen any evidence of. “I am a PROUD CANADIAN,” he wrote, “and have a PASSION for OUR NATIONAL SPORT which you and your ‘AMERICAN’ influence have taken ownership of and we as willing CANADIANS sit back and ­passively STROKE your little ‘CIRCUMSIZED ­JEWISH’ EGO!!!”

http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/architects ... -1.3469862
The federal government has announced plans to convert the former U.S. embassy across from Parliament Hill into a space dedicated to Canada’s indigenous people.

But indigenous architects are calling the building at 100 Wellington St. in Ottawa a “hand-me-down” and say it is “not a culturally appropriate space” for an indigenous centre.

Speaking to a crowd of indigenous leaders and government officials outside the building on National Aboriginal Day, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he hopes the converted space will serve as a “permanent reminder that indigenous people are at the very heart of this great land.”

“This is your space,” he said Wednesday. “We want you to decide how best to use it in order to serve your communities.”

But in a statement issued a day before the announcement, the Indigenous Task Force of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC) said it’s another example of indigenous communities being “forced into leftover spaces that fail to connect in any meaningful way to their cultures.

“Indigenous people always get the hand-me-downs, the buildings, and land that settlers no longer have a use for,” said the RAIC task force, comprised of about 30 mostly indigenous architects, architectural students, interns and academics.


What could be more culturally appropriate than white people giving the native population a shitty deal and then the native people bitching about it for then next few hundred years?

The US embassy has been on Sussex beside the Market for maybe close to 20 years. Its that hiddeous fortress that looks like a battleship. 100 Wellington must be their old embassy facing Parliment Hill. Probably been abandoned and asbestos ridden for a decade or two.

The old US embassy is one of the most valuable pieces of property in Ottawa. It's been empty for almost 20 years because the thought it was too important to waste on government offices or to sell it.

The problem is that we're building museums and naming bus stops in honour of the First Nations, while the poverty in this country remains shocking.

It's all nice and well to pay lip service, but the reality remains that it still costs something like $13 to buy a tub of margarine if you live on your average Canadian reserve. The schools are underfunded and clean drinking water is a rarity. Aboriginals are the fastest growing demographic in this country, and until we can find a way to have most of these communities generating wealth, Canada's economic situation will continue to kind of just of sputter along. Through investment we have the resources to change these things, but we don't.

True, but most reserves are torn apart along political lines just as much as any nation would be. You've got the left, the right, the idealistic centre.

While you are right about outright corruption in many a community, but it would be unwise for a Liberal government to start doling out lessons about ethics and impartiality, given the LPC's tumultuous history. While corruption does indeed need to be tackled, it is also very important to observe democracy, in this case on a very local level. It may not be a perfect system but it is a political system very much parallel to our own, what with money & influence et al.

All the best,

your dear pal Boozer


An NDP* prime minister? SUSF.

Are you also excluding other famous faux Dippers like Layton and Mulcair?

No, they didn't have a chance to be PM either.

It's all nice and well to pay lip service, but the reality remains that it still costs something like $13 to buy a tub of margarine if you live on your average Canadian reserve. The schools are underfunded and clean drinking water is a rarity. Aboriginals are the fastest growing demographic in this country, and until we can find a way to have most of these communities generating wealth, Canada's economic situation will continue to kind of just of sputter along. Through investment we have the resources to change these things, but we don't.


If we could wipe out the blatant corruption most reserves would be much further ahead.


True, but most reserves are torn apart along political lines just as much as any nation would be. You've got the left, the right, the idealistic centre.

While you are right about outright corruption in many a community, but it would be unwise for a Liberal government to start doling out lessons about ethics and impartiality, given the LPC's tumultuous history. While corruption does indeed need to be tackled, it is also very important to observe democracy, in this case on a very local level. It may not be a perfect system but it is a political system very much parallel to our own, what with money & influence et al.


Well, I doubt the indigenous leadership would accept or acknowledge corruption on a local level coming from any federal government. I think there's less oversight as well locally, but, could be wrong.
I think butter example is a red herring as well. If you live 800 km from the nearest city you can't expect to pay the same prices. Do you feel we should subsidize shipping into remote communities?

They should also improve the programs offered by places like JEDI. The first time home buyer program with them for natives looking to live off res is pretty hilarious.

But I want to make sure you're excluding them just to make sure.
