Haha, yeah, our "Conservative" party is still more liberal than the American Democrats
- if you live in america or britain, which seems to be the norm for this site, just remember that almost nobody in Canada is really a conservative by your definition. this includes the conservative party and people who support it. no exceptions. Basically, KantoPKMNmaster and Tangeh have it right. It's true that Harper is more liberal than Obama in comparison.
I refuse to believe Tangeh's claim that Harper is more liberal than the Democrats, or Eelektrik's absolutely ridiculous claim that there are practically no conservatives in Canada, unless they explain their points. Do you two even see what you're typing? rofl.
Harper's economic policies consist of giving the wealthiest citizens huge tax breaks. He has made zero effort to improve relations with the first nations. He's hesitating to accept Syrian refugees. He passed a bill that removes environmental protections on waterways so pipelines could be accepted faster without needing to meet environmental standards. And yes, people do support this crap. If Canada had almost no conservatives, this guy wouldn't have been elected three times.
Just going to address the complaint you made that implies that I apparently need to go into full detail
about the election. What I meant before was I'd explain more to KantoPkmnMaster since he inquired about the leaderships, and I simply forgot to, as a result of my inactivity. This is a debate
thread, people need to do research on their own instead of simply listening to what I say. Aside from this, your list is full of miscellaneous things that anyone could find out within ~5 minutes of research.
As for discussing provincial politics here, I can't change the title, so you'll have to ask a mod. That or just make your own thread instead of insulting/trying to change mine so you can feel like you contributed.
- harper was somewhat popular as far as prime ministers go until he passed Bill C-51
Except for the fact that he only received 34% of the electorate's votes in 2011. And the Idle No More movement which was inspired by his blatant lack of concern for the environment and First Nations reserves. And the backlash his government got when the Senate scandals happened.
He was hated way before C-51.
This would likely be the case regardless of which party gets in. there are three major parties. even if, say, the NDP win for example, it would still probably be with less than 50% of the electorate's votes. this isn't something exclusive to the tories.
Tangeh clearly said the majority don't want this party in power
. The NDP is close enough to the Liberal party, that if they got in, I doubt too many Liberal party supporters would be opposed. Your point is flawed.
I'm assuming we're discounting things like Harper's horrendous racism toward the First Nations, just for instance. And what they've done with health care.
Seriously, I don't know off-hand everything that Harper's done, but he kind of makes me think you are 100% full of ****.
Although I am pretty confident that, yes, they at least have a spine, which 90% of Demorats who don't align with Warren, Sanders, etc. appear not to.
I'm curious as to why the others seem to think Harper is more liberal than the democrats. Not even his economic record points to that being true. And yeah, his racism towards First Nations pisses me off. If any other race had 1,000 women go missing in Canada, we wouldn't need the United Nations to tell us to call an inquiry.
In other news, did you hear about about the candidates that the Conservative party dropped? One, Jerry Bance, used to be a contractor and two years ago, he urinated in a homeowners coffee mug and then dumped the contents into their sink. Another one, Tim Dutaud, posted videos mocking mental disabilities. Makes you wonder how many other people with these guys' mindsets are still
in the Conservative party.
