As soon as Chavez took away the guns from Venezuelans ...he imposed his dictatorship and forced socialism on everybody...and the wealthiest country in South America, dripping with oil, gold and many other natural resources, saw it's citizens lining up for hours to get a loaf of bread, and fighting each other to dig food from dumpsters. And those on the right side of the dictatorship became wealthy on their government wages...Chavez's own daughter is still the richest person in Venezuela. Learn from history.

No, Singh. The best way to better health care is chronic disease prevention through positive behaviour change. It would also save the government(s) money as well.

WHAT JOKE THIS TRUDEAU IS! THE problem is that he has made all of Canada a sad joke as well! He does not care about the WEST or the resources produced there & this is why the WESTERN PROVINCES must stop this "cap in hand grovelling" & demand equal rights as Quebec!

Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Finland and UK spends around 4000$ per person per year for the healthcare. Life expectancy is 4 to 9 years more than in the USA. In the USA people spends around 11000$ per year for the “healthcare”. In Finland the spending includes the dental 🦷 care. Think 🤔 hard what do you want. Pay 4000$ for government with dental care or 11000$ for the insurance companies and Big pharma with the possibility of personal bankruptcy.

I hope that one day a whole crowd of disgruntled Canadians , will moon Trudeau in public view as he deserves to know what we think of him. Will never call him PM ever, as he is nothing to most of us but a problem we can't get rid of. Some of us maybe are hoping his plane will crash, or something good like that, but his best buddies are terrorists so they won't do it. damn it.

We have come to a very sad state of affairs when the nonsense of man made climate change makes it into the throne speech. This is all the more the case when Canada is of no significance in the world of carbon dioxide. Who can think these people are legitimate? For those of us who are patriotic Canadians this is a desecration of a sacred trust. So sad. Don Hansen

Schjon Aster and Lillian Miller, I wanna show of how my appreciation of how you both debated each other as civilized adults AND your objective supporting details for your respected sides. It’s so hard these days to have proper debates with reason instead of rash reactionary emotions.
Millie Me
Millie Me 3 months ago
Schjon Aster There are in fact a lot of government grants for climate science. Look that up. Most of your scientist friends would not have jobs if not supported by governments. This constant focus on CO2 takes away from very real climate concerns. Our government focuses on CO2 while importing cheap plastic junk from China that breaks in 2 days and then goes to the dump. Plastic is in the oceans and water systems, our appliances are made to break in 5-7 years when my parents lasted 20-30 years. I could go on and on but the only government action is a carbon tax. If scientists really care about the environment they would not be pushing this alarmism. Yes we have to take care of the environment but it is about way more than CO2
Schjon Aster
Schjon Aster 3 months ago
@Millie Me Sorry that your response is plain wrong. I know several world climate scientists, and if you think they get huge amounts of money, especially government money, you are sadly mistaken. That is what lobbyists for oil and gas keep feeding into the public and it obviously works as you believe it. The results are actually higher than they report. The scientists are not alarmists, they are conservative in their calculations and realists. please no not believe the hype of the oil, gas and coal lobbyists, future generations will judge you for your dismissal of facts.
Millie Me

Schjon Aster If you paid attention in the 1970s it was acid rain and global cooling. Are you not disturbed at all when you go back and see that almost all the predictions have been wrong
Millie Me

The climate is always changing. Please do serious research. Don’t believe what you are fed. 97 %. of scientists believe in climate change. That’s great. So does anyone who has actually lived for any period of time. The question should be Do you believe CO2 is changing the climate in a negative way. If you ask the right questions the results are way lower. Secondly there is a lot of financial reasons for scientists to agree with climate alarmism. There is big government dollars invested in this. Most people would say They believed if it meant their job. Thirdly scientists who disagree lose their jobs or their careers do not advance. You also have to realize the science was settled on the world being flat and many other ideas in the past. David Siegel did a nice concise article called “What I learned about Climate Change: The Science is not settled. He actually wrote a pro climate change book until he started looking into it. Ask yourself why 500 scientists who write a letter to the UN saying their is no climate emergency are ignored while a 16 year old girl speaks. This focus on CO2 is taking the focus away from real world climate issues such as plastic and our throw away society

TRUDEAU’S BEST KEPT SECRET..... On Aug 30 2018, your government took away the status of 10,500 First Nations Newfoundland Mi’kmaq. This act of cruelty has destroyed so many Mi’kmaq families. Brothers and Sisters of the same family separated by status , their identity taken from them, many just because they moved away in search of work. Even a set of twins were separated, it does not get more Cruel than this , WHY DID YOU NOT STOP IT.

@mattbenz99 [Canadian Gambit] it had to do with quebec anglophones concentrated in the western side of montreal, but immigrants today are a big reason why pretty much all Montreal votes red.
