The Fraser Institute has a history of ignoring facts and data which do not support its agenda.

I went to a symposium that they held once, for which they asked the people there to form working groups and discuss topics related to the broader topic at hand. The group of people who I was with were split into different groups and all had similar experiences in that the group came to a consensus on the specific topic that they were assigned and make a small summary which would be incorporated into a larger report. The Fraser Institute employee heading each group ignored the group's conclusions in the summary despite strenuous disagreements from the majority of group members and when the groups were asked to discuss their conclusions, the group leaders provided only the summary supporting their agenda. When several members of the symposium tried to bring up their objections, the symposium leaders shut down discussions and thanked everyone for their time. The final report of course only included the viewpoints of the leaders and ignored any dissenting opinions.

I will never trust anything put out by that organization even if I agree with the conclusions.

I agree with Boozer. Fuck the Fraser Institute.

I've never knowingly went to a symposium. I think it's the symposium organizer's loss, I'd be very useful.

Anyone who quotes the Fraser Institute rankings in a discussion about First Nations schools is clearly nowhere near qualified to contribute any longer to this conversation - or to any other conversation for that matter.

  • Promote higher education by building taller schools
  • Appoint Senate seats according to proportional representation
  • Abolish the Monarchy but retain the Governor General

  • Give the Governor General a cool Davy Crockett hat
  • Legalize all drugs
  • Tax religion
  • Ban Coors Light and ScotiaBank
  • Enact a $7.8 million individual salary cap, much like after the NHL lockout in 2005
  • Allow every Canadian to vote in the 2020 U.S. Election
  • Trade P.E.I. for Delaware
  • Change national anthem to a bunch of Inuit throat singing
  • A Giant Tiger™ fidget spinner for every Canadian Citizen

The NDP exists to lead the brown people, not to be led by them. Only a wealthy, white, career graduate student like Niki Ashton is capable of being the true voice of both Canada's ethnic minorities and its working class.

Electing a friendly leader is the worst thing the NDP could do right now IMO. Mulcair should have been allowed to stay on, but failing that, someone similarly angry and sharp-tongued is necessary. Progressives sick of Trudeau won't need more good vibes, they will need someone fierce to cut through his bullshit.

I'm sure Jagmeet Singh is a nice man, but he does seem more comfortable spouting platitudes than he does outlining workable socialist policies. I said the exact same thing about Trudeau. (replacing the word 'socialist' with 'liberal' in his case, obviously)

Similarly angry to Mulcair? Ugh, Mulcair is completely charmless.

Not convinced "angry" works with Canadians. Let's see what Singh can do.

The worst case scenario would be to ditch their next leader as quickly as they did Mulcair. No NDP leader is ever a hit in the first election. Or second, for that matter.

If the NDP has any sense at all, they will find someone with promise and stick with that person for a minimum of three elections. That's a big part of the recipe for partial success shared by Broadbent and Layton.

If that's Singh, I hope he still fits the bill in 2023 and 2027, because that's when we're really going to need him.

The NDP should pick someone who can outlast Trudeau (not necessarily try to beat him next election). Just a good stable, likeable, smart showing over the next 5-6 years until Trudeau/Liberals get stale.

At that time, both the conservatives and the NDP will gnaw away at the Liberal support. Sheer (Scheer? Cheer? Sheare?) is a complete dud, the cons will surely have another leader in 3-5 years (if they don't they're morons).

Andrew Scheer is a bashful vagina, while Trudeau and Singh are both utter bellends.

Liz May seems like a pretty qualified public servant compared to all this. I will probably vote Green unless it's Ashton or Angus on the orange side. I am not interested in this self-examining, post-Trudeau NDP at all. The NDP should keep moving left like it always has.

If anything right now, the NDP should see the writing on the wall and reach out to its socialist/feminist/environmentalist wings. This is not the time to elect some fucking Andrea Horwath stand-in, who longs for a means-tested Old Age Security program.

BTW, the name of this thread should be 'Andrew Scheer is a Bashful Vagina'.
