The Canadian Political Thread

Now that the 2011 election is over, let's use this thread to discuss Canadian politics as they transpire over the next 4 years.

Please keep the discussion civil and I kindly request no personal attacks or insults directed towards fellow ehMac members.

It would be refreshing to avoid over-the-top hyperbole as well. We're all Canadians and lets not make people out to be left-wing or right-wing caricatures or turn things into a WWE fight promo.

I may not be a supporter of Prime Minster Harper, but he does endorse ehMac.ca.





^ Picture I took on a nice trip to Ottawa this past winter.

In the now-closed "Canadian Election" thread, Dr. G. noted:
Quote:
One good outcome from this election -- There will be more women in the House of Commons following Monday's federal election that saw 76 women elected, the highest number of women ever.
Anyone have a breakdown of that by party?

So long as they're a bit more honest than Oda that's cool.

I don't know, but I think more woman in office is a great thing. I think if woman / mother's ran all countries, there would be a lot less wars and perhaps even world peace.

Just saw this video today which I thought was extremely uplifting.
