Meanwhile, In Canada... UPDATED

Postby DoomYoshi on Fri Nov 16, 2012 11:48 am

British Columbia
Liberals Impose a Puppet Government

Yes, that's right. The Provincial Party created an entirely new municipality, which within it's borders has a population "made up almost entirely of grizzly bears and mountain goats". Why did they do this? Because the actual people who live in this region didn't want a multimillion dollar ski resort ruining their neighbourhood. Now, that form of NIMBYism isn't grand, but what's worse is that the people who get to choose the mayor, who decides zoning control, doesn't live in the new municipality and is just a puppet.

This isn't a new issue by the way. The NDP is a party mostly composed of Puppets. Ruth Ellen Brosseau never entered her riding and spent $0 (yes, that's a zero) on a campaign but was still elected to represent the area on a NATIONAL LEVEL.

It is only a matter of time before we have actual paper politicians. Next election, I am only voting if "Cardboard cut out of Justin Bieber" is an option.

McGuinty is an AssPanda*

I always think of pseudoscience as being less common when it comes to issues that make money. This is not the case here. Just in case you are wondering, there is no evidence anywhere that indicates even slightly that fracking has, could, or ever possibly contaminate ground water.

In the US, the BLM recently changed their regulations that basically make it prohibitively expensive to develop a natural gas well on Public or Native land. They don't have any research to back this up of course. What this means is that developers will probably just put wells on private land, which means a) the reserves will be equally dried up, b) the Natives can't make any money from the gas and c) the government can't make any money from the gas.

In Canada, things are a bit different. Here we are talking about not allowing fracking at all. Which doesn't make any sense. Clearly, when McGuinty went to McMaster, they didn't teach about this thing called "Science", or more particularly "geology". To put it succintly:
Association of American State Geologists (AASG) "recognizes that the environmental record of hydraulic fracturing activities over the past 60 years has been overwhelmingly positive.

This is in response to questions about contaminated water, but also earthquakes and explosive gases coming out of faucets (so McGuinty holds one of these voodoo beliefs, but not the other two...?).

To put it clearly:
Image
Here you can see that the level where the fracking is occuring is nearly 2 KM away from where the groundwater is. That's nearly 2000 km that would have to be cracked through to experience any contamination.

*AssPandas are completely unrelated to DoomYoshis, and not nearly as cool.

Since you mention Canada...
I was grocery shopping yesterday and since the recent election I get a much more "Canadian" feel when I'm out in public. Tbh, I don't mind it much, it's kind of cozy.

Indeed. Canada is the biggest, in land area, of the common wealth members. India makes up half of the 2 some billion population of the common wealth.

I also like our war memorial in Ottawa

I like that they don't glorify war, and have sombre tone to them.
