want to hear something fucking sad about the goverment and how fucking dumb they are.
Well basically in an area of Ottawa they are complaining about the amount of litter and they are requesting for more garbage cans which will hopefully = less litter. So The city counsil( or whoever is incharge of that) agree's BUT they are hiering someone and paying them $300 000.00 to fucking study which type of garbage cans would be best to buy and if thats not bad enough there not getting the results until 2010 or 2012( cant remember which).... yea and we complain about the american goverment( which i am still totally agaisnt most of the stuff that goes on there) hopefully idiot things like this are just happening in Ottawa and not to many other palces.
that is pretty retarded i must admit but i doubt that's at a federal level so it really doesn't apply to anyone who isn't in ontario. i know that here in calgary they're asking for more garbages around the city, maybe even recycling bins seeing as how most of our litter is recyclable. i haven't seen any action though. i hate being a litterbug, but i'm not going to carry my garbage all over town until i get home because there are no bins on the streets.
He's the guy in charge, we elect him to make these decisions when something like a minority government is stalled out and not really doing anything productive. Who else would you get to make this call?
well with americas weak economy, it is going to negatively affect canadas economy. for the first time in a while the conservatives are going to have to acknowledge a deficit which doesn't bode over well with the population, further more having an election before the conclusion of the american election is another factor since a democratic win in america usually gives the left leaning liberal momentum in the polls because people feel that two left leaning governments in two different neighboring countries will be able to work together better.
actually i think this is the ideal age, i just think kids need to be better educated on the system. so that they dont think that they should vote for the guy that wants to legalize weed, just so that they can go smoke....
Really though, I am a useless cunt when it comes to my own country's politics. I've got no idea what's going on. but now that im 18 and i can vote for someone, I think I'll be more motivated and interested to see how it's all working.
I do know that voter turnouts need to be higher in our country, democracy is only going to work when everybody votes, otherwise you only have 60% of the country voting and deciding where the rest of the country should be. And that ain't right.
So are sites like www.current.com and www.digg.com. I think user-submited news sites can be super informative so long as you watch who they are sourcing in the stories. Most of the time they are legit sources like journal articles or big name news sites (like guardian) but sometimes you get some real b/s shit being submitted.
There is: NDP. I would never want them to win any real power, but consider them the best opposition party in the world, and Layton is brilliant at holding feet to the fire, whether they be liberal or conservative feet. They get money based on total vote count so I could consider voting for them.
My opposition to the libs is based solely on my disgust after watching the last nomination convention. Put Ignatieff in charge and you'll have your government back, you assholes.
