jazz's Avatar Apr 5, 2021 | 12:00 1 Erin Otoole got destroyed in the media over a close vote on a vague climate policy proposal.

Now look what the orange retards are pitching;

A look at the federal NDP's convention resolutions

Barely noticed by the media. Reply With Quote

  • blackpowder's Avatar Apr 5, 2021 | 13:40 2 This is the problem with a third national party. Libs smell the wind and move ever left to take nd voters. And ND goes ever more extreme to maintain sperate identity. PC chases libs tail moving same direction.
    Although some of these motions are ludicrous, someone wrote them down. Scary. Reply With Quote

    Another calls for the return of Crown lands and the restoration of Indigenous jurisdiction to Indigenous nations, commonly known as "Land Back."

  • Apr 6, 2021 | 07:44 9 Even Erin O'toole is swingin to the left!

    So who are you guys going to vote for? Because I can't see any party that would accommodate the angry conservatives who think Canada is a shit hole country and would rather live in the USA!

    It must be time for another reform party or 2, to split the conservative vote into several unsuccessful factions.

    You know things have changed on the canadian political landscape when even in Alberta, the dippers have a chance to send Kenney packing. LOL

    Apr 6, 2021 | 08:00 10 Lots of crazy ideas, but a few really good ones. And a lot of them that will get big support in the cities. Unfortunately O'Foole has only stale ideas and the charisma of a potato, so it looks like a continuation of the last 5 years for the foreseeable future. But I do see the NDP holding a greater balance of power next time. Reply With Quote

    Apr 6, 2021 | 08:59 14 I'm not about to suffer through reading the entire 500 items. But in the CBC article, I didn't see anything about actual wealth generation. Lots about redistributing existing ( and what would quickly become dwindling sources of) wealth, and drastically increasing spending.
    Do these types even consider the need for a healthy economy to support their hair brained schemes?
    Or are they all just like Chuck, bitter, resentful, and jealous, just take it away from someone else, and damn the consequences?

    I still think that a simple skill testing math question as a prerequisite for being able to vote would eliminate most NDP voters. Reply With Quote

  • jazz's Avatar Apr 6, 2021 | 09:05 15 AF, this last yr has made it clear, no matter what govt programs or private investment we draw in for productive endeavors, there is a double digit (and growing) percentage of the population that will never take meaningful part in it. Reply With Quote
    Apr 6, 2021 | 09:39 16 Not only that Jazz but an increasing elderly demographic which costs the pension fund and medical system. Not enough young working age no matter how many immigrants they dream of attracting. I heard latest brain wave they want population to grow to 100 million by 2100. Need something to come for other than govt programs. I see the emphasis here is on a Nordic welfare state but we’re not nords. Reply With Quote

    A rather long read but if anthropology and paleo-genetics interest you.......

    THE CAMPAIGN TO THWART PALEOGENETIC RESEARCH INTO NORTH AMERICA'S INDIGENOUS PEOPLES


    http://https://quillette.com/2021/03...enous-peoples/

    From the article:

    Indigenous groups typically have membership requirements that depend upon (or at least relate indirectly to) “blood quantum,” i.e., the degree to which a person is descended from “full-blooded” ancestors. As anthropologist Ryan W. Schmidt has explained, these rules could threaten the integrity of Indigenous groups because, for example, “over 60 percent of all American Indians are married to non-Indians [and] by the year 2080, less than 8 percent of American Indians [are expected to] have one-half or more Indian ‘blood.’” By demonstrating the degree to which today’s Indigenous communities may themselves be entirely separate from ancient precursors, paleogenetics can be seen as a further threat to the ideal of Indigenous communities as homogenous, genetically distinct populations rooted timelessly in specific geographic areas.

    And we will never know how many new discoveries we may have missed now that human remains are being taken from—or freely given away by—scientists in the name of politics. It is past time for science to reassert itself for the benefit of all humanity.

    jazz's Avatar Apr 6, 2021 | 11:09 18 NDP platform should not be dismissed outright. The liberals have to dip into that support to keep power and that means whackjob ideas get considered, sometimes implemented. Thats likely where the carbon tax came from. Reply With Quote

    My ancestors were driven from their land in Switzerland.

    Why would you grow a population to the point your own country ends up like the countries these people want to get away from??

    Apr 8, 2021 | 11:28 22 Oh, and this was interesting:

    Of course, some might say that there is only theoretical value in knowing about early human life in North America—so why not simply accede to the requests of Indigenous peoples? By way of answer, consider that Reich’s lab at Harvard has published a staggering amount of paleogenetic data, much of it relating directly to human wellbeing. Svante Pääbo’s lab is similarly productive, as illustrated by a 2020 paper published in Nature, entitled ‘The major genetic risk factor for severe COVID-19 is inherited from Neanderthals.’ It identifies a gene cluster on chromosome 3 that is a “major genetic risk factor for severe symptoms in patients,” and shows that the risk is conferred by “a genomic segment of around 50 kilobases in size that is inherited from Neanderthals and is carried by around 50% of people in south Asia and around 16% of people in Europe.” Reply With Quote
