Thanks, you made my day. I encourage all on this forum to use the same tactics against the SJWs that they use whenever possible.

RE: The Canada Political Thread
Quote:Quebec tables balanced budget; says economic climate remains ‘favourable’

Quebec’s Liberal government says it has the province’s finances under control. Now it has to figure out how to propel economic growth with one of the world’s most rapidly aging populations.

Two years after coming to powerin an election that left the separatist Parti Québécois in disarray, Premier Philippe Couillard’s government on Thursday tabled its second consecutive balanced budget. While Alberta reels under an oil-prices crash that shows no sign of abating and Ontario will continue to grapple with deficits until next year at least, Quebec is emerging from the other end of a $7.6-billion cost-cutting effort with a spring in its step and plans to give some of the cuts back to voters.

“To use one of the Premier’s favourite images, our ship successfully sailed through rough seas and we are now entering calmer waters,” Finance Minister Carlos Leitao told the legislature in his budget speech. He said the province must now capitalize on lower oil prices and the dollar’s depreciation to tackle structural factors slowing its economic growth to below 2 per cent.

After reining in program-spending growth to 1.6 per cent for 2014-15 and holding it at that level the year after, Quebec is now in a position to loosen the purse strings a bit this year to a 2.7-per-cent growth rate. As of 2017-2018, program spending will increase at an annual rate of 2.8 per cent, Mr. Leitao said.

All the financial targets presented Thursday provide for a balanced budget for the next five fiscal years, suggesting the government has no intention to return to big spending even in a crisis.

“He’s not going to do what other finance ministers have done in the past, that is bring back the big punchbowl,” said Sébastien Lavoie, assistant chief economist at Laurentian Bank. “You can’t free up money and start providing tax relief or spending for everyone out there. You need to be more surgical about it.”

Middle-class families are among those who will get almost immediate relief. The Liberals announced they would cut by half the fee parents pay for a second child receiving subsidized child care. The new fees, which are coming due now at tax time, have become a source of irritation for parents who argue Quebeckers are already among the highest-taxed Canadians.

As expected, Quebec is also putting an early end to the health contribution paid by 4.5 million taxpayers. It will now be phased out over two years ending in December, 2017. And it’s introducing a new tax credit of 20 per cent for “ecofriendly home renovations” – a popular measure that’s sure to boost revenue for suppliers and contractors.

Where opposition parties in Quebec have been most effective in needling the government has been on the issue of economic development. Several companies based overseas have scaled back growth plans in the province in recent months in light of tougher business conditions, making the government’s campaign pledge to create 250,000 jobs over five years appear ridiculous to some. Highlighting the shortcoming, a senior-level bureaucrat in the economic ministry recently told a committee hearing his department worked without “quantifiable objectives.”

“There is no global vision here,” said PQ finance critic Nicolas Marceau, noting non-residential business investment in the province this year is expected to be zero. “The 250,000 jobs was a promise, a target. Then it became a myth. And now it’s disappeared altogether [in the budget document]. It doesn’t exist any more.”

On Thursday, Mr. Leitao sought to build on the government’s existing economic plan – one anchored on the Plan Nord and Maritime strategies – and said the government expects to spend $7-billion over the next five years to speed up Quebec’s shift to an innovative, clean and digital economy. The spending includes a new electricity rate discount for companies initiating major investment projects in manufacturing and resources, as well as a new business tax credit for major digital-transformation projects.

Business leaders applauded the moves, saying that with very limited available resources, the government is trying to push Quebec’s companies to improve their operations. “[This is] giving signals to businesses to kind of get in the action” and do more to create growth, said Françoise Bertrand, president of the Fédération des chambres de commerces du Québec.

“The government could have chosen today to invest all their money in health and education,” said Eric Tétrault, head of the Manufacturiers et Exportateurs du Québec. “But they recognized the economic urgency of doing something now.”

One of the key challenges Quebec faces is an aging population. Forecasters have been warning for years of an impending decrease in the potential labour pool as more and more people leave the work force. Now, it’s happened – the number of Quebeckers aged 15 to 65 is declining in absolute terms.

The government is trying to create incentives to work and improve training, with the thinking that greater productivity will foster greater economic growth. To that end, it announced three new tax measures, including the enhancement of so-called “work premiums,” which are designed to get people off last-resort financial assistance and join the labour market.

Powered in part by stronger international exports, the government projects Quebec’s economy will grow 1.5 per cent this year and 1.6 per cent next year. The Coalition Avenir Québec opposition party said the government appears resigned to accept that tepid growth. Others say that in a world with so many unknowns, that might be as good as it’s going to get.

“I think we have to get used to it,” said Mr. Tétrault. “There’s not enough people in the marketplace, there’s not enough ideas, there’s not enough projects for us to be able to hope for the 3 to 4 per cent GDP growth we used to have in previous years.”

The ring of fire is interesting, its failure didn't really cost anyone locally as there wasn't any infrastructure invested in it. The only people that got burned were the corporations investing in surveys and first nation consultation. Mining speculation that supported labs and surveyors was dead in around 2012. Forestry has actually come back, but is at 'steady' levels, not booming.

The northwestern Ontario boom is in First Nations. Massive population growth demands retail, rental, education, health care and transportation. Government jobs are booming...which is an unnerving concept.

Near Northern Ontario...north bay to sudbury...is where I've seen the chinese/indian upsurge you're talking about. North Bay is what Barrie was 20 years ago. The Temagami area north of North bay is the new Muskoka.

North Eastern Ontario, centered around timmins, has been doing well with better metal prices and returning forestry but is nothing abnormal. Just unemployed people getting their jobs back vs. migration.

I'm going to have to come back to this again. The native population boom is something most Canadians who haven't been near a reserve cannot comprehend or even imagine. Most reserves also have a media blackout policy, so what goes on there is more or less unreported.

Quote:The Aboriginal population increased by 232,385 people, or 20.1% between 2006 and 2011,Footnote 5 compared with 5.2% for the non-Aboriginal population (see Box 2: Comparability of data on Aboriginal people over time).
https://www12.statcan.gc.ca/nhs-enm/2011...eng.cfm#a6

We're not talking about a slightly above fertility rate growth here, these are third world birth rates, girls pregnant at 14 and making babies well into early 30s. An average reserve woman can have 6-7 kids no problem in Hobbema (Alberta, North of Ontario). The infrastructure investment necessary to maintain this kind of population boom is going to be...YUGE...

Most of the northern jurisdictions (not just in Ontario, but also Manitoba, Alberta and BC) are fairly tight on their finances. Some political voices are quietly starting to mull the idea of 'urban' reserves (basically ghettoes) to get natives closer to the money and away from these dilapidated communities.

This isn't a bad thing, but I fail to see how Canada is going to integrate these communities without serious financial input. In time some of these reserves will probably just become shadow cities, similar to Brazil's shantytowns. Just curious to see if they'll be good investment hubs for money looking for long term growth away from stagnant markets.

This is a huge understatement. We are at the bottom of a commodity super cycle and its effects can be felt strongly in Northern Ontario. At one point, with nickel bonus, welders were making well into the six figures, on par with the oil sands. Now there have been hiring freezes and downsizing. Suffice to say the local economies are gutted. Timmins, however, due to the gold has fared fairly well. Sudbury not so much.

The Indians now own all the gas stations and corner stores in north eastern Ontario but I don't see much Chinese money outside of lakefront properties. The climate is a huge deterrent to most immigrants, it's as cold as Edmonton but also much damper. There's still feet of snow here. The locals are also way more hostile to immigrants than southerners (Parry Sound south) so I don't expect much a demographic change.

RIP Rob Ford. He deserves a lot more respect than the leftards in Toronto will give him. Today I am proud to have insulted Jack Layton when I did:

https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-48360...pid1247411

It was easy for a commie like Layton to be a commie in communist Toronto. But Rob Ford was just like Trump and Roosh and Cernovich and Vox Day and Milo... Ford was a culture warrior and was often assailed on all sides by rabid SJW's, and he withstood it like a champ. He asked no quarter and he gave none.

Here's to Rob Ford. Cheers big guy.

What troubles me is that the local population of Montreal wants to hear what their mayor said. They just want to close their eyes and act like the problem doesn't exist. At least Quebec City has their eyes wide open.

Yeah Quebec is way different than Montreal. Quebec mostly have only white Quebecers that populates the city and I'd say a good majority of people don't speak english. Montreal is pretty diverse and we had a lot of problems in the past with the ''accomodements raisonnables'' where muslims for example were heading to sugar shack and asked 40 people to leave the place so they could pray.

Yeah Radio-Canada is state funded so it wouldn't be surprising to see that they would try to discredit MLP. She had a lot of good points though and and fared surprisingly well (although MLP should have done her homework about the 25,000 refugees..most of them were christians (or really liberal muslims) who were accepted in Canada...and already had family or relatives here (muslim or not), I disagree with how she presented her statement but she brings a a lot of important points which don't impact Canada now but are already impacting Europe). The very important thing though, is that Canal+ in France presented a very short segment of the interview where MRL was wrong and built a whole article to discredit here based on that segment.

http://www.lesinrocks.com/inrocks.tv/jou...arine-pen/

Anyway I'm no even a fan of MLP or the FN..but it just shows how much there is little left in the ideas of free speech and debates here now.

Well, the RCMP is watching social media...

Quote:An Ontario man has been detained in a "preventive" arrest on fears of terrorism following an RCMP national security investigation in Toronto.

Kevin Omar Mohamed, 23, has been charged with carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a dangerous weapon. His lawyer, Anser Farooq, told CBC News the charges were related to a knife, but little more is known about the circumstances of the arrest.

Police said Mohamed was taken into custody "pursuant to Section 810.011 [of the Criminal Code], Fear of Terrorism Offence." Although arrested, he has yet to be charged with any terrorism-related offence.

"This arrest speaks to our ability to tackle a threat that is multifaceted and constantly evolving," RCMP Supt. Lise Crouch, assistant criminal operations, said in a news release.

"While there was no indication of any plans for a domestic attack, we must remain committed to preventing individuals from travelling abroad to gain training and expertise that could be used in the planning and implementation of future attacks on Canadian soil."

Mohamed's lawyer, Anser Farooq, told CBC News the RCMP has been surveilling his client since 2014 and allege that he has been involved with facilitating and encouraging terrorist activity through the use of social media.

Oh look... more cultural enrichment discovered by the RCMP...

Quote:Last Tuesday the RCMP conducted an arrest on a newly immigrated Syrian refugee. Sources indicate that the man was suspected of being linked to ISIS and have gotten past the rigorous screening process that Immigration minister John McCallum assured Canadians would pick out any discrepancies. When we contacted McCallum he gave no statement on the matter. This discovery may put many doubts into the minds of Canadian citizens on the eligibility to allow some many refugees into the country. Approximately 14 000 have already arrived in the country and are residing in 165 communities in Canada. The new refugees have been adapting well to their new homes, but this incident may have a negative impact on how the continue to be received by Canadians. Rona Ambrose made a comment following the arrest stating that this issue had been anticipated by the Harper’s government. It was one of the main arguments to deny their entrance before the federal elections in 2015. She followed by saying that it is unsafe to accept more refugees until Trudeau’s government can fully evaluate the security risk that is involved. Trudeau also made a short statement following the arrest saying that his government was working tirelessly to find a way to strengthen the screening process. He says that this was an unpredicted event and that he was assured the screening process met certain national security requirements were met.

Thanks. Good catch. Looks like it's just satire. Oh well. It's close enough to reality to be worthy propaganda. Bout time the right started using the same dirty tactics the left uses. When you're the only one playing by the rules, you're not really trying.

Good find HSLD, these fruitcakes are prime examples of what happens to guys who grow up in PC cities and are never exposed to actual men, what Arnold once described as "girly men", basically they are a bunch of wankers with no real world, manly experiences. The younger white guy with old man ears I'd like to especially smash in his face, at around the 7:00 mark he goes on a long winded rant and says "If you look at the actual dialogue among men, if you go on the internet and see how men are talking with each other, its about as ugly as it can get, I mean it really is pure misogyny." He's another shit head who lives on the internet 24/7 and doesn't interact with any actual men outside of it, I highly doubt that this guy will be playing any pick up hockey or curling this week and probably shudders at the thought of "slumming it" with blue collar people, you know, actual men.

The older white guy calls him out on it but he's a bit of a dick too as he throws all of the men on the internet under the bus by calling them all a bunch of idiots, thanks bud. The fat brown guy probably hasn't had sex since 2011 and even then he may have paid for it, he's obviously never been in an LMR situation when a chick says no but you chill for a bit, mix her a drink, put on some tunes and fifteen minutes later, she's sucking your dick.

I almost threw my fucking laptop across the room while watching this video but its typical CBC, these wieners don't represent men in Canada or anywhere else, they are a bunch of safe space dwelling internet weirdos who've never spent anytime around real men. Maybe I'm out of touch but I never meet these type of dudes since I'm always in blue collars towns where if guys like this started going off about their ideas of what a man is and the current state of masculinity, they'd probably get beat up.

Fuck the CBC, they are pushing their agenda and Troolander just gave them over 800 million, I'd like to see them interview a guy like this oil rig worker who recently stated in an eloquent manner his thoughts on the oil biz (it has nothing to do with masculinity but I though that this guy was right on):

That guy has the "British Columbia, been in the bush too long, afro" Where, there was a point where his hat fit over his hair, but after too many 10 days on, 1 day off shifts in trailer camps he never really noticed that it was out of control. With no women around to point out that he looks like a wilderness bozo the clown, he continued with said hairstyle, which is actually a masculine testament to how long he's been working in the remote wilderness.

In the same vein, I present to you, the french canadian jerry curl.

Whereas the mullet grew on prairie hockey players, the french canadian jerry curl gained traction in rural quebec and french ontario during the same time. Being rural quebec though, it never fell out of style. It can still be seen today, in small town bars across northern canada and occasionally in italian canadian wilderness strongholds like sudbury and thunder bay.

looking for a new signature.

Don't forget the fact that they use real Canadian sugar shack maple syrup in the jerry curl treatment process! Laugh
