On the global warming debate, Canadians are beginning to agree on one point - Kyoto is a dog.

Just read in the g&m that the doomsday clock is ticking closer to midnight. For the 4th time since the end of the cold war, the clock is moving, BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING. For years we were told this clock measured the danger of world war, nuclear attacks etc. Now we are told global warming is going to attack us. I know we are under attack from the enviroMENTAList, and kyotokooks, so will any country attack these idiots to stop the danger.

On the Health Care comparasons to other countries:

Nope, don't point to France or Sweden (or any other EU country, all of which have world-class health with their two-tier systems,) look to a decrepit, poor, over-populated third-world country. After all, for a manipulating media leftard, it makes for the best propaganda. Why compare systems with G8 countries with the exception of the great Satan? You only wreck your own argument. When trying to fool the stupid into believing BS, alway try to find the most obsurd example available and assume someone will believe it.

This is a perfect illustration of what is wrong with the lying, manipulating, corrupt propaganda rags we refer to as newspapers.

Why are Canadians not getting in depth honest examinations by MSM of the ramifications of the Kyoto protocol on Canada’s economy if fully implemented on the timeline as agreed to in the original signing by Chretien.
And what about buying "credits" from Russia, China etc?
What is that all about?
Lorrie Goldstein is hammering at it but sadly his is only one voice in a huge country.
MSM seems to be avoiding a subject that could well use full media attention to enable Canadians to understand what exactly Kyoto means for us.
Is the apparent disinterest by MSM a blind leftist acceptance of Kyoto is GOOD?
Or has public trust in MSM diminished beyond believing what they publish anyway?
Will the blogosphere will be the only reliable source for Canadians to digest the details?

Excellent point Warwick, there must be some genetic anomoly in the make up of a journalist/moonie that prevents them from opening their eyes and seeing the light.

In a similar vein this morning Peter worthington at the Tor Sun wrote a glowing piece about Shouldice Clinic. You know, the same type of specialized hospital that Alberta wanted to open in Calgary only to get cretien and all the dippers threatening to cut off healthcare payments?

Good Lord people, there are working systems out there. Why don't we seriously look at them?

Angus-Reid has been asking the same question now for 2-3weeks:
Do you think Stephane Dion will be the next PM
67% no 33% yes
Ok so why does it take this long to run a poll. Is it because they have not achieved the response that they think it should be yet?
Why if the numbers are so high against is it that other polls show Conservatives & Liberals in a Virtual Tie(as others call it)

Posted by: bryanr at January 17, 2007 11:49 AM

They don't want to look at them. They want to stay in their Rosedale-induced utopian coma that would have us believe that our communist health care system (shared with Cuba and N.Korea) is both "fair" and "the best." It's neither.

To look at viable alternatives (ie the 32 nations on the UN list who scored higher than Canada on health care) is to admit they were wrong and that many people died for their socialist ideology.

The media will never admit this. Especially not the Toronto papers like the Red Star and G&M.

Posted by: Warwick at January 17, 2007 11:52 AM

Dion's answer is Kyoto. It's a bite that falliciously stands for the solution - if you're against it, then you are against not just the environment, but the whole planet. He believes this so much, he named his dog after it.

But as much as Dion has based his leadership drive on Kyoto, he won't dare explain it.

Harper must unveil Kyoto to Canadians and thereby expose Dion as its corrupt and secretive pusher.

If Kyoto is exposed for what it is, Dion and the Liberals are dead.

Posted by: irwin daisy at January 17, 2007 11:52 AM

Just wait until the election, folks. Of course, we'll hear the Harper is a bully line after he pounds Dion in the debate, but such is life. Better a leader than waffler.

Posted by: Trev at January 17, 2007 11:58 AM

Dion perfectly illustrates the reason that you should stick to your field of study. Dion's is the useless field of sociology.

Never let a sociology prof do economics, logic, mathematics, science or especially politics. They just don't understand.

Sociology is the subject mediocre students take when they don't feel like working towards a useful job.

I would like to know what Uncle Mo thinks is so glorious about China such that we have to buy carbon credits from it. Is it the pollution? Is it the human rights violations? Is it the mine safety? Is it the abortions? Is it the one-child rule? Is it the censorship? Is it the coal-burning?

Or is it the steamships full of loot to be had by brokering deals between China and the West?

Posted by: shaken at January 17, 2007 12:02 PM

This quote from an old thread here on SDA. Now we can add Stephane Kyions name to the list. According to a Goldstein article yesterday there are going to be 500+ coal plants built in China in the near future.

So...we have the CONSERVATIVE party [via Mulroney], the LIBERAL party [via Trudeau and Chretien], and the NDP [via Rae] all tightly connected to....Paul Desmarais and Power Corp. And we have the Prime Minister, the Finance Minister, and the Prime Minister's key aide all tightly connected to....Paul Desmarais and
Power Corp.
We now see the Power Corp. key alumnus in the UN Kyoto deal which so coincidentally benefits the (largely unpublicized) business interests of
Desmarais alumnus. Maurice Strong has now joined Brian Mulroney and Paul Desmarais in investing in the Asia Power Group's $100 million venture capital in "small coal-fired power plants being built in the south of China". They are also
looking at "larger projects in northern China, as well as in Malaysia, the Philippines and India." The Asian economies are expected to spend $1 trillion [US] on essential infrastructure, of which an estimated $400 billion [US] will be on power generation. Chinese and Asian labour costs are low - as low, in China, as $45 per month - and potential profits are enormous.

Here on the West Coast,Carbon credits are being sold by independent "Carbon Sequestering Consultants".You could rightly assume this is another stupidity tax like state run lotterys,But If you take the new enviromentalism as the faith based religeon it's becoming, then this starts to sound like the sale of indulgenses or Papal bulls that were sold by the medieval church to "cancel"out sin.
I would like to see Fenris Badwolf team up with a seasoned ,er, professional like David Suzuki and exploit this brand new guilt driven cash cow.Apparently,no loin cloth wearing is required.no unpleasant cycling or repellent dietary laws ,leave that for the laity.Simply promise nothing but good vibes when the check clears.

Arnold has declared a disaster re the citrus crop, cbc is flogging prices will rise for oranges etc. Where is the outrage over the profits to be made by THE BIG CITRUS COMPANIES, like when oil rises. Three days of winter and he is in a panic. 12000 workers will lose jobs as pickers etc. So, the illegal immigration will be solved when all those mexicans have to go back home. Every cloud has a silver lining, so the saying goes. Too bad for the libs that the only cloud over dion is that black one that followed that character from Lil Abner. Another mp is calling for Khan to appear before a committee re his secret report. Why should he, it would take about 30 minutes for the cbc to start telling us how full of lies it is. They are already bashing the new measures announced today by the conservatives. And, for those liberals, a secret is a secret, and if they release the report it is no longer a secret. I agree that spending money in canada for new energy is much better than sending billions to Strong, via China for hot air, so they can afford to build all their new coal burning factories. Can't have clean coal in Canada, much better to send our money to china for dirty coal. That is the libs mantra.

Ontario government to Allow Outside Smoking Areas at Casinos, these can have a roof & Open air walls. If it's Anything like the one i have seen at a local Track/Slots they are even Heated.

After considerable expense to our local Legion we built an outside Patio area to accomodate our smoking members(Some of Whom are Veterans). We are not allowed a roof or walls or heat, We cannot even have the Patios Umbrellas Touch as this will Impede the Smoke from Exiting the OUSTSIDE PATIO.
Typical Hypocritical Liberals "Do as i Say, Not as I Do"
The loss in Revenues has been substantial at Casinos since last May--states anti/smoking groups.
Well Excuse Me, Legions(Veterans Groups) Have been in Canada since the end of the first War. The loss to some of the smaller legions has resulted in Branch Closures & others are barely getting by, Legions have raised Millions Upon Millions in Ontario alone to be donated back to the communitites & thats the Thanks they get.
Our Legion agreed that we needed to accomodate both smoking & non-smoking which we did.

Our household has never been polled by a major, so-called polling firm. How come ?? One would think the odds should be there, especially as one gets up in age, no ??

Let's see.

We are blessed with about a poll a week, say 50 polls a year. They often claim 2000 or so polled, not including those "disqualified", with each poll.

So, 2000 X 50 = 100,000 questioned every year.

Say, at 8,000,000 households in Canada, it would take only 8,000,000 divide 100,000 = 80 years.

So every 80 years all households should be polled.

I have never been, can't recalled others saying they have been polled, even rarely.

So, correct me if I'm wrong(you so-called pollsters out there) but some people must be polled quite often to make the averages work. No ?? Are some "selected" more often ??

Of course this could all be cleared up if the Pollsters would just publish polling data with a list of those polled. What was that ?? ... when Hell freezes over ?? Oh, something to hide ??

I was polled, at home, by phone, for 25 ? minutes last January. I was sure who was the sponser of this poll, although the pollster wouldn't give that up...
It was a political poll... and yes "B.Hoax Aware" I certainly did enjoy every moment of it!! I don't expect to be polled again in this lifetime, so it remains for me a "warm and fuzzy" moment where I talked freely of my hopes and dreams (for the new government) and all that bla, bla, bla... really I felt like I'd been "chosen" ... like the biggest cup of perfect hot chocolate on a cold winter night. uff, it was so beautiful.
Previously, I was stopped while going into a public library (in NDP occupied Regina) in about 1980, by 2 girls possibly in grade 8 elementary school. They were asking everyone who went in, "who has the better medical system, Canada, or the USA". I do remember the shock their faces betrayed as I told them my answer, clearly they had only received "Canada" as an answer and really hadn't considered that anyone would have an opinion different from their own....
I guess that little pollsters grow up to be big pollsters...
It was clear to me, that my (extended) answer had brought up some points their school teachers had not considered... like, "choice" for one.

What we know about polls, learned in the last election:

If it's not from SES, it's crap. Ask Allan Gregg and the CTV folk.

That said, Harper started MUCH worse off 13 months ago and won a minority. Messrs. Harris and Mulroney share similar stories.

For those who get TVO, Steve Paikin nailed it on the head the other night. Health care will soon be the #1 priority again of Canadians, as people who have said environment were just crapping their pants because of how warm it was. For as stupid as the city of Toronto as a collective whole is, no one will say the environment need be worried about after two days of arctic like weather.

Who was it that said that the environment is only talked about when everything else is going well? I know it's a Conservative of one sort or another, I can't remember whom.

I am on a pollsters speed dial, been polled by Angus Reid 3 time in 35 yrs. Twice they were on politics, once on stress in the family. First time polled was when Manning was our leader and the election was on. First quesstion, who would you vote for today-Manning, sorry, Manning is not an acceptable answer, he is not on our list. This went on for about 15 minutes, and for every question I answered Manning, Reform etc re who would make the best PM, what party should be the govt. I waited for the results, appearing a few days later-and of course they showed Manning and the Reform at 0% support. I called every newspaper in AB, every radio and TV station, questioning the results and asking for them to publish the questions along with results. They all said that was not their job, they just reported results as given from the polling agency. I then said it was wrong, as Manning and the Reform were not allowed as answers and were not on the questions, as I had been polled. Then I got the run around that there are many polls, and I was probably talking about another one. Sorry I said, this poll states it was taken between Sept 6-9, and as they called me on my birthday, (hard to forget that) which is Sept 7, I was not wrong. Poll results mean nothing.
Again, when the constitution was signed I was working at a kiosk in a major mall. The TV crew stopped for a man on the street reaction. My comments started, This will turn out to be the worst things for Canada and, camera turned off, crew left. I followed them for hr thru the mall, and that night not one anti voice was shown on any news program across Canada, altho I had heard over 50% questioned saying it was bad for Canada. One person even said, it will lead to homosexuals being allowed to marry. Hugh laughs from the crew. What insight that person had, and it was a young woman. I have never believed man in the street comments or polls since. The pollster re stress asked, are you under more stress today than last week, and I said yes, do you think this stress will lessen by next week, no, then they wanted to know why I felt I was under more stress and it would not be gone by next week. My answer was, my husband had a heart attack yesterday and is awaiting heart surgery next week. Oh was his answer, guess that would explain it. He hung up. Everything turned out fine. That was 15 yrs ago.

The founder of MADD Canada, who spoke out against the national organization's fundraising practices, has been stripped of his role on the charity's two key committees. "I feel betrayed," said John Bates, 79, whose quarter-century battle against drinking and driving earned him the Order of Canada. Bates learned Monday evening he was gone from the charity's finance and policy committees, which monitor the organization's expenditures and revenues, and set the tone for the charity.

i got caught in the dreaded filter but here's the Hypocrite topic of the day
Ontario's government is going to allow Smoking in the buildings that where you can go & try to double or lose your money, some also have horses on display running around in circles.

They are going to build Outside open walled enclosed smoking areas with roofs, The one i visit even has heat.
Now the twist is that We at our local Legion went to quite an expense to build an outdoor patio to be used by our Members of which many are Veterans, We were told we could not have a roof we were allowed patio privacy fence but it had to have ventillation,Uhhh. We were allowed Umbrellas but they could not touch, this is to allow the smoke to rise out of the outside patio area, Uhhhh

The legions have been around Canada for over 80yrs, In Ontario alone Legions raise Millions of Dollars ea.yr. for Charities.
Now many Legions because of liberal Hypocrites are being forced to close, Many of the larger membership legions are in serious finacial trouble.
We at my legion do not dispute the smoking & we made every accomondation we could, However lets be fair about it.

maryt - 4 nights of below freezing temperatures tends to kill fruit - hence a shortage and higher prices along with no work for migrants. If oil companies followed that model prices would drop at the same rate they go up.
Also, I would love to know who was doing the Manning poll - maybe you were answering a question that was not being asked.
If you ask a pollster who commissioned the poll they are supposed to tell you. I waited for 5 minutes while the person who called went to check with her supervisor - not that it was hard to figure out who was trying to get the answers they wanted!

It was an Angus Reid Poll, and it showed up on the caller display, as Angus Reid. And yes, I answered with Manning and he was not an option. The question was Who would make the best PM if election were held tomorrow. I said Manning, Who would you vote for-again replied Manning. I was told Reform, Manning, etc were not on the list of answers. So, when the results came out, there should not have been Conservatives x%, Libs x% Reform 0%. That gave the wrong impression to everyone, as only those of us polled, and answering Manning/Reform knew it couldn't tabulated. Hey, even Rush had a story re windfall taxes on citrus. 4 nights of freezing in CA is very uncommon, and is that a sign of global warming. For dion to try and copy and better anything Arnold does re GH is stupid, different climate, distances from cities, agriculture, etc.

Students grill Dion
By MIKE OLIVEIRA
...
"He created huge expectations and did not come up with a definition of (the fiscal imbalance)," Dion said during a swing through the southwestern Ontario.

"(Is it)[Ontario Premier Liberal Dalton] Mr. McGuinty's, (Quebec Premier Jean) Charest's, (Saskatchewan Premier Lorne) Calvert's definition? He did not put an amount of money (into his plan) and now he has to manage this huge expectation he created. I will not create a huge expectation, I will be a good partner with the provinces."

Dion refused to elaborate, saying only that addressing the fiscal imbalance would depend on how much money would be left in the coffers. He also said he had no plans to spend his way back into a deficit.

"Don't ask me to pretend there is a fiscal imbalance and elect me and (hope) I will fix it. I don't want to create these kinds of expectations."
