  1. No training in the world will help with the type of people who want to become cops.
  2. You'd think "I lie about what I actually care about and value" would be a pretty important consideration when electing someone since your electing them *to do the thing they say they are going to do*. What you think if he lies about having a problem with deadbeat dads he's totally going to fulfill his campaign promises anyway? We expect so little out of politicians it's amazing.
  3. That's the reality of a FPTP system with multiple parties. Could be worse, if each riding held that exact breakdown of voting intentions that Conservatives could win all the seats.
  4. Honestly I don't think I could force myself to write down to that level and don't think my soul could handle it if I did.
  5. It's also god damn hilarious how the current whining is about trying to develop a way to export oil eastward. The last Trudeau tried it, ya'll didn't like the idea then. What changed? This shit with Alberta oil is a day late and dollar short. And the Federal Liberals have given it far to much support. Kill this nonsense and be done with it.
  6. Based on some of what I've seen about how badly maintained a lot of Russian vehicles are snowfall will likely make thing worse for them. A lot of their vehicles need to stick to roads or risk getting stuck. Heavy snowfall could make even roads impassable.
  7. So, has anybody else noticed that since the sanctions the number of anti-liberal anti-Trudeau anti-biden trolls has seemed to decrease? At least on Twitter, can't really speak to other platforms.
  8. Turns out when the cops care to, they can in fact both handle large groups and do so without serious escalation. Who knew?
  9. Tamara Lich has also been arrested. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/ottawa/tamara-lich-chris-barber-arrested-ottawa-1.6355960 In tangentially related news there's been a couple of lawsuits filed against the use of the Emergency Act.
  10. It does set a rather sticky precedent if for the purpose of the act unwilling and unable are considered the same thing.
  11. I don't know if the police and towing stuff will help/work. But the financial stuff is big. (Some of which is the type of stuff I expect we'll see a bill to make permanent at that)
  12. Beau's got some thoughts, not sure I agree with everything but it's a good perspective.
  13. This sounds a lot like WW2 when they thought "we have planes, why do we near armies?" air power is a great force multiplier, but it needs something to multiply.
  14. Unfortunately the reality is a lot of people are oblivious. Harder to be so now though. In other news the fed government may be preparing to invoke the emergency act. https://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/feds-prepared-to-use-emergency-powers-to-end-blockades-but-police-must-do-their-job-blair-1.5779589 I do wonder what caused this shift? Did it just take them a while to analyze the possible fallout? Was Ontario declaring a state of emergency the proof needed that this isn't something the provinces can handle? Or is the last couple of days of police moving against counter protesters the straw the broke the camels back? (I doubt that last one, but it would be nice)
