The odds against Canadian Independence

Another legacy of Stephen Harper. Perhaps you recall him saying “I will change Canada in such a way you will not recognize it!”

He ushered in Bell Media which was his greatest success. Since that time Bell Media has taken over most of the IP providers in Canada plus moved onto the print providers like Post Media.

The US Republicans have taken control of our news media, again, thanks to Stephen Harper.   They can edit, prohibit or promote at their own will.

Larger defecit predicted for the future

A few things to remember before Scheer starts his outrage BS!

The worst of these was Mulroney who came very close o bankrupting the country leaving the Liberals who followed with only the choice of draconian measures to set us on a business path again.

The rest of the world is doing the same thing. With the Trump guy killing world trade at every opportunity being supported by Putin of all people and the continued efforts to recover from the recession just past and pushed by the necessary expense of climate change we are on a good path, even great

The LDS were railroaded out of Mississippi; some hung yes. In a less tolerant time the teachings didn’t go over with the general population. This was pretty much standard fare of the day.

You are Jaded. The exiting Conservatives tapped the Heritage Trust fund for 760 billion dollars by capping the fund at 5% profit throughout our highest income years. This was to support the 10% flat tax or rather the flat tax was seen as a way to spend it.
In the same period of time Norway banked more than 1 trillion dollars! Ocean or prairie makes no difference. This is a gallon for gallon comparison.
Notley, working under this disadvantage managed to pull Alberta up to the number producing province in Canada! She did this by turning windfarm construction over to oil companies in trouble with the down turn.

This explains the debt to cash on hand in 2013.
‘First, the oil fund is a mathematical artifice. At three-quarters of a trillion dollars, the Norwegian Oil Fund appears to provide plenty for a country with scarcely 5 million citizens. Yet the country has accumulated a foreign debt that, at $657 billion, is almost as massive. Subtracting the debt from the fund’s $740 billion leaves a balance of only $83 billion. In other words, there is a treasure chest, but it is almost empty: Njord’s prize for future generations is only a little more than 10 percent of its putative value.’ https://www.washingtontimes&#8230;

Norway was/is the world bank for the EU. When money is lent to other countries it is counted as a debt. Cancelling foreign debt is a tried and true way of balancing the books.

‘In the same period of time Norway banked more than 1 trillion dollars!’
And what is Norways debt? Comparing Norway to Alberta is flawed from the start. Norway does not send billions each year to a government that redistributes it for votes. Norway has a huge tax system that keeps people down. https://www.sovereignman.co&#8230;

To the effect Norway was the banker of the EU during the downturn.  Money loaned is set up as a debt.   Forgiving foreign debts is a mechanisim used by Governments often.

There is no huge pile of cash sitting anywhere in Alberta ready to be transferred to Ottawa! The transfer payments of which you speak comes out of Ottawa’s portion of the general tax base. The distribution is by legal formula. Even Conservatives have to do it.
Norway has an income system percentage wise is similar to Canada’s. Every citizen of Norway gets state of the art medical coverage and a broad based social system attends to citizens from the cradle to the grave.
They have an economy of scale; A 50 dollar hamburger is served to you by a 100,000 dollar a year waiter.
Using straight numbers, every individual in Norway is a millionaire.

I guess you don’t like to see anything that distorts your view of Norway being the utopia you think it is. Spinning how ottawa get money from Alberta does not change the fact Norway does not send billions to a central government but I see you’ve tried, which is normal for most marxists to do.
You didn’t read any of the articles I supplied did you? That is not surprising as it would explain how a 50 dollar hamburger delivered by a 100000 dollar a year waiter is not the way it is.
Maybe read & research about things before you make comments, it will help you understand the reality of Norway & show you the flawed claims you made.

Now where have I seen that before? Where have I seen the case of Conservatives gaining power, having the “power” to repeal Leftist policies, but then not doing it? Hhhmmm……I believe I’ve seen that happen in America. Trump took office. He and Republican-controlled House and Senate MOST DEFINITELY have the power to repeal Roe V. Wade AND the “Gay Marriage law” of June 26, 2015, neither of which have happened, yet. But who knows. With Kav on the SCOTUS, it might just happen. I pray it does! As for Canada, O, how I pray for you often, dear beloved Canada! Due to leftists, you have lost your “shine”. I pray you someday get it back! VOTE THE DEMOCRAT COMMUNISTS **OUT** NOW, Canada, it’s the ONLY way!

Wow! Things like Roe V. Wade are ingrained in the Republican Conservative world to be “overcome” The Christian right, firmly in charge. What I find distressing is the fact a foreign power is running for political office in Canada and has, on several occasions got it.
Harper and Kenny were run out of Trade Negations’ in Asia and the EU. No one could be this unlucky! It was a deliberate loss to throw the Advantage to the US! Trump has been on a course of destruction as far as international trade agreements are concerned. In hand with Putin of all people.
Harper selling the Wheat Marketing Board against the wishes of the Farmers (except those in the Closter of the LDS in the south) I find particularly offensive. Likewise Diefenbaker’s give away of the Avro Aero to the US and destroying the single flying porotype of the aircraft. Thus keeping Canada out of an important and opportunistic chance of an advanced aircraft manufacturing industry. The Avro was a world leader at the time.
Most of all I wonder what good is @CSIS is that they allowed all this to pass unchallenged.

Yes based on dissatisfaction brought about by years of dwindling trade prospect. Mind you I think the Liberals could have done better explaining the situation to the voters. They failed in this.
Ford in cutting all the environmental initiatives dropped 3 billion dollars from the provinces coffers. When Ford killed the power companies board and chairman they threw pension funds around the country into chaos. No thought was given to the problems it would cause. Short cited theatrics. By the time his reign is over the people of Ontario will be searching for still another one day wonder.

You speak of left and intermittent. This left Government has brought this province up to the number 1 economic force in Canada. The Christian right driving the Conservatives is wrong in thinking that homosexuality is a stray thought or a passing fad that can be starved or beat out of a person. Your positions are terribly wrong.
Another thing is the LCBQ is a haven for people to come and discuss their situations without the hassle of the bullies in class or the administration. It is a safe venue of discussion and if you are shaken by this you should examine your own tenuous sexuality.

I thought it was the oil that brought Alberta up to #1 not the NDP. Any party would do it if elected.
I don’t think any true Christian wants to beat or starve anybody, even the enemy! That is the very base of being a Christian! Homosexuality in itself is not stray, but some of its extreme behaviour, manifested and promoted beyond rational level, can be stray! Nowadays,the promiscuous aspect of this “condition” spills out in a perverted way, exposing minors and spoiling them – that is bad, and must not be allowed. It is common sense.
I believe that democracy without values will eventually turn into anarchy. The left-thinking governments are removing the values (by tolerating almost everything that exists in the world, regardless whether it is good or evil) and that is what Canada and many other, so called developed countries, are facing in the coming decades. The Roman Empire has fallen in just this way. History should teach us at least that! I have no fear of the “left” being bad, I know it will be defeated when the right time comes!

You are wrong again. The NDP took office after conservative policies came to roost. The Conservative/Republicans took 760 Billion dollars from the Heritage Trust fund to run their 10% income tax scam. This is where larger companies (oil) took huge deductions and a low rate. During this same period of time Norway banked over 1 trillion dollars with just 1/2 of Alberta’s production. Oil from land or ocean makes no difference it is a gallon by gallon comparison.
The Conservatives (Ralph Klein) pegged the profits of the Heritage at 5% throughout our highest revenue years. This left the bank broke when a never party took over. The Republican trickle down does not get to the walk about population! It is an elitist corporate political party.
Against incredible odds the NDP has brought this province forward.

I never said Conservatives running Alberta were good willed. They could have done with the money what NDP did too if there was good will amongst them. My point was, I am doubtful if NDP could repeat the trick in, say, Nova Scotia or even Ontario, where there is no oil, in a province that did not experience big boom-time like Alberta once did. There are lots of “false Conservatives” in PC party that are not conservative at all. The cleanup process has started, we are to wait and see if it will ever bear fruit.
NDP to me, on the other hand, even though it may seem financially successful in Alberta, may still prove disastrous in the long run. Hitler’s party also turned Germany around to be fiscally flourishing, yet it was evil at the same time. I am afraid NDP reminds me of the Nazi party a lot, even though it is not nationalistic. As the above article states, NDP takes away our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom (of religion in this particular case). Who knows what will they take next. They play the social Marxism game and it is WRONG and EVIL!

There is no knowledge on homosexuality being DNA determined, as far as I know. We don’t know if it its socially conditioned or based on genes. We don’t know if it cannot be cured either. Your sources must be very different from mine.
Neither I or anybody I respect are against homosexuality or homosexuals!!! Do not put words in my mouth please. I may condone actions of certain homosexual individuals, like I would in case of actions of any “straight” person engaging in wrongdoing. I condone promiscuous homosexual demonstrations, pride parades which are vulgar and obscene (just google for some images) – and very very NOT CIVIL!!!! I feel this gender ideology is being pushed on me against my will, and pushed too strong, considering only a small percentage of the population is homosexual. I have gay friends who DO NOT support such “advocacy” either.
I condone those who “take relish” in tormenting anyone, regardless of their sex orientation. I am also not labelling people, but if I see wrongdoing I will speak out about the deed (not the person), and will use no labels to people (where did you get this idea from – you must be hanging around a wrong crowd(.
The parallel I drew between NDP and Hitler should be obvious if you read the article, to which we are both supplying comments 🙂 If NDP is saying it will deny accreditation to Christian schools if they don’t follow NDP’s requests (which are contrary to their beliefs) then where is freedom of religion in such Hitler-like behaviour? I don’t know what statistics of teen-suicide rates you are referring to, but suicides are on the increase for sure. I blame, the society with no values for it, and here I mean the values that brought civility to this world. I am talking about several hundred years of civility, not just decades.
I was never in the closet, so I don’t have to come out of one. Perhaps you should be more open minded (as opposed to being discriminatory) to people of faith, because if they truly are people of faith, no harm will come your way from them!

Under the Conservatives, the Christian Schools received an unusually large amount of funding, far more than the public or catholic school systems did. This was a source of vex for a lot of people.

Western Producer

The Western Producer is not allowing any statements that are contrary to the weak Conservative position of denial.

John Clark • a minute ago

Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by The Western Producer.

 
The Paris agreement was made up of 200 plus countries and the carbon tax is seen as the single effective way of reducing our carbon footprint. It has worked on every other consumption tax.
We have a 10 year window to do something; that’s all! We won’t get second chances! The whole balance will Cascade there is no doubt about that.
If a few countries hold out, where does it start and stop? Fact is it won’t get off the ground.
The carbon tax is split into party lines. The Conservatives have known of it for the past 20 years or more and chose to make it a divisive argument rather than a cure.

The Conservative goal of changing Canada.

The conservatives have been around the country using the carbon tax as a divisionary ploy. They have known of the ramifications for more than 20 years, documented.
Scheer’s program of false information was documented on Vassy’s CBC Politics show.
One item comes to mind offhand. The question in the house about the playground and grafting sunglasses. As with most of his BS, he asks a question in the house then, peddles it around the country as a fact.
In this instance, the playground was paid for by Trudeau, and the sunglass came from a family friend. The latter came forward because Speer made a complaint about them forcing the investigation. Trash!
If the Conservative/Republicans get six seats in the election, they will press for the re-write of the constitution and, that is what they are after and, you won’t like it!

Huge risk if global warming passes 1.5C, warns landmark UN report

As you read this consider the Conservative plan for combatting climate change is the same one rolled out by Harper in his disastrous tenure and, it is a sham, a fake, an idea that allows large corporations to ship money across borders while taking tax deductions on both sides.   If there is not sufficient left over to run the country it will come out of the pockets of small business and individuals. 

Huge risk if global warming passes 1.5C, warns landmark UN report
Urgent changes needed to cut the isk of extreme heat, drought, floods and poverty, says IPCC
• IPCC climate change report – live updates and reaction

The world’s leading climate scientists have warned there is only a dozen years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C, beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people.
The authors of the landmark report by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released on Monday say urgent and unprecedented changes are needed to reach the target, which they say is affordable and feasible although it lies at the most ambitious end of the Paris agreement pledge to keep temperatures between 1.5C and 2C.

The half-degree difference could also prevent corals from being completely eradicated and ease pressure on the Arctic, according to the 1.5C study, which was launched after approval at a final plenary of all 195 countries in Incheon in South Korea that saw delegates hugging one another, with some in tears.

“It’s a line in the sand and what it says to our species is that this is the moment and we must act now,” said Debra Roberts, a co-chair of the working group on impacts. “This is the largest clarion bell from the science community and I hope it mobilizes people and dents the mood of complacency.”
Policymakers commissioned the report at the Paris climate talks in 2016, but since then the gap between science and politics has widened. Donald Trump has promised to withdraw the US – the world’s biggest source of historical emissions – from the accord. The first round of Brazil’s presidential election on Sunday put Jair Bolsonaro into a strong position to carry out his threat to do the same and also open the Amazon rainforest to agribusiness.
The world is currently 1C warmer than pre-industrial levels. Following devastating hurricanes in the US, record droughts in Cape Town and forest fires in the Arctic, the IPCC makes clear that climate change is already happening, upgraded its risk warning from previous reports, and warned that every fraction of additional warming would worsen the impact.
Scientists who reviewed the 6,000 works referenced in the report, said the change caused by just half a degree came as a revelation. “We can see there is a difference and it’s substantial,” Roberts said.
We must reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero or face more floods
Nicholas Stern

At 1.5C the proportion of the global population exposed to water stress could be 50% lower than at 2C, it notes. Food scarcity would be less of a problem and hundreds of millions fewer people, particularly in poor countries, would be at risk of climate-related poverty.
At 2C extremely hot days, such as those experienced in the northern hemisphere this summer, would become more severe and common, increasing heat-related deaths and causing more forest fires.

But the greatest difference would be to nature. Insects, which are vital for pollination of crops, and plants are almost twice as likely to lose half their habitat at 2C compared with 1.5C. Corals would be 99% lost at the higher of the two temperatures, but more than 10% have a chance of surviving if the lower target is reached.
Sea-level rise would affect 10 million more people by 2100 if the half-degree extra warming brought a forecast 10cm additional pressure on coastlines. The number affected would increase substantially in the following centuries due to locked-in ice melt.
Oceans are already suffering from elevated acidity and lower levels of oxygen as a result of climate change. One model shows marine fisheries would lose 3m tonnes at 2C, twice the decline at 1.5C.
Sea ice-free summers in the Arctic, which is warming two to three times fast than the world average, would come once every 100 years at 1.5C, but every 10 years with half a degree more of global warming.

Time and carbon budgets are running out. By mid-century, a shift to the lower goal would require a supercharged roll-back of emissions sources that have built up over the past 250 years.
The IPCC maps out four pathways to achieve 1.5C, with different combinations of land use and technological change. Reforestation is essential to all of them as are shifts to electric transport systems and greater adoption of carbon capture technology.
Carbon pollution would have to be cut by 45% by 2030 – compared with a 20% cut under the 2C pathway – and come down to zero by 2050, compared with 2075 for 2C. This would require carbon prices that are three to four times higher than for a 2C target. But the costs of doing nothing would be far higher.
The final tick box is political will
Jim Skea
“We have presented governments with pretty hard choices. We have pointed out the enormous benefits of keeping to 1.5C, and also the unprecedented shift in energy systems and transport that would be needed to achieve that,” said Jim Skea, a co-chair of the working group on mitigation. “We show it can be done within laws of physics and chemistry. Then the final tick box is political will. We cannot answer that. Only our audience can – and that is the governments that receive it.”
He said the main finding of his group was the need for urgency. Although unexpectedly good progress has been made in the adoption of renewable energy, deforestation for agriculture was turning a natural carbon sink into a source of emissions. Carbon capture and storage projects, which are essential for reducing emissions in the concrete and waste disposal industries, have also ground to a halt.
Reversing these trends is essential if the world has any chance of reaching 1.5C without relying on the untried technology of solar radiation modification and other forms of geoengineering, which the IPCC says may not work and could have negative consequences.
In the run-up to the final week of negotiations, there were fears the text of the report would be watered down by the US, Saudi Arabia and other oil-rich countries that are reluctant to consider more ambitious cuts. The authors said nothing of substance was cut from a text.
Bob Ward, of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change, said the final document was “incredibly conservative” because it did not mention the likely rise in climate-driven refugees or the danger of tipping points that could push the world on to an irreversible path of extreme warming.
The report will be presented to governments at the UN climate conference in Poland at the end of this year. But analysts say there is much work to be done, with even pro-Paris deal nations involved in fossil fuel extraction that runs against the spirit of their commitments. Britain is pushing ahead with gas fracking, Norway with oil exploration in the Arctic, and the German government wants to tear down Hambach forest to dig for coal.
At the current level of commitments, the world is on course for a disastrous 3C of warming. The report authors are refusing to accept defeat, believing the increasingly visible damage caused by climate change will shift opinion their way.
“I hope this can change the world,” said Jiang Kejun of China’s semi-governmental Energy Research Institute, who is one of the authors. “Two years ago, even I didn’t believe 1.5C was possible but when I look at the options I have confidence it can be done. I want to use this report to do something big in China.”
The timing was good, he said because the Chinese government was drawing up a long-term plan for 2050 and there was more awareness among the population about the problem of rising temperatures. “People in Beijing have never experienced so many hot days as this summer. It’s made them talk more about climate change.”
Regardless of the US and Brazil, he said, China, Europe and major cities could push ahead. “We can set an example and show what can be done. This is more about technology than politics.”
James Hansen, the former Nasa scientist who helped raise the alarm about climate change, said both 1.5C and 2C would take humanity into uncharted and dangerous territory because they were both well above the Holocene-era range in which human civilization developed. But he said there was a huge difference between the two: “1.5C gives young people and the next generation a fighting chance of getting back to the Holocene or close to it. That is probably necessary if we want to keep shorelines where they are and preserve our coastal cities.”
Johan Rockström, a co-author of the recent Hothouse Earth report, said scientists never previously discussed 1.5C, which was initially seen as a political concession to small island states. But he said opinion had shifted in the past few years along with growing evidence of climate instability and the approach of tipping points that might push the world of a course that could be controlled by emissions reductions.
“Climate change is occurring earlier and more rapidly than expected. Even at the current level of 1C warming, it is painful,” he told the Guardian. “This report is really important. It has a scientific robustness that shows 1.5C is not just a political concession. There is a growing recognition that 2C is dangerous

The Globe and Mail have blocked my access to their paper,  the subscription to the paper through Google Pay means nothing to them at all.

Likewise, the financial post and, soon enough I think, iPolitic.ca.  The Globe announced they were purchasing IPolitic because of its excellent staff providing news feeds.  (This is very true, the reason I’m subscribed to it).
Then IPolitic.ca made a post saying the Toronto Star has bought them out which leads me to assume the Globe and Tor star are the same company or at least the same parent.

If indeed I am cut off when they take over it will mean a change in tactic for me.

The Mormon Church is behind the whole multi-generational turn over of the Conservative Party and their made or order opposition.

I will put all my attention to the undoing of the Mormon church, the subversive head of the insurgency.   This post is to give all concerned, notice.
