    Its the proper outcome for this. JT needs to score political points fast. He needs to do something quickly with NAFTA and the Trans mountain pipeline. At this point in time he's playing politics.

    Trudeau (imo) needs to worry about the upcoming election because it looks like (from the news last night) the country is turning PC blue. Trudeau can worry about a seat at the UN general assembly later, after if he gets reelected. The way things are going JT might win a minority election. Better a devil you know then one you don't.

    I think he means no more additional pipelines beyond TM. Not sure about the Trans Canada pipeline concept, or Nothern gateway. I think those two pipelines are now pipe dreams.

    Hmm. Racists, people engaging in gross generalizations or having nonsensical stereotypes - don’t they often seem to have some simplistic one-dimensional view of others, lumping them together as if they are all the same?

    Strange behaviour among otherwise intelligent people isn’t it.

    ^^^ Strange behavior indeed. I don't know what poster #3007's politics are, nor do I care. All I can say is, quit acting like this is Facebook.

    The comment made to H.L., were childish. Racist I don't know. Maybe #3007 is just somebody having a bad day and nursing a bottle of Jack Daniels, mad at the world.

    What makes this even more humiliating for Trudeau is that the one person holding up a phone as if they cared about what Trudeau was saying, is a member of the PMO staff.
    If you're someone who votes Liberal because "Hyuk hyuk hyuk, I'm a proud Canuck, get free beer when I'm backpacking because everyone loves the maple leaf!", you're not gonna switch your vote just because Trudeau drew an underwhelming crowd at the UN.

    And you're ESPECIALLY not going to switch to the Conservatives, who, according to tbe Liberal mythology, are the sole reason Canadian backpackers weren't getting free beer from the locals during the decade before Trudeau.

    The media didn't mention this, but they made hay when it happened to PM Harper..that is why I wanted it noted. As to the beer ec, I have no idea what you're trying to say

    Sorry if throwing in the beer confused the allusion. I was referring to the kind of people who think that Harper ruined our reputation on the world stage(hence, we couldn't wear maple leafs abroad), but JT has restored us to some previous status as global icons.

    I'm saying the kind of person who believes that isn't going to be swayed by seeing a photo of "Justin" addressing a near-empty room at the UN. It's not the kind of belief that depends on empirical evidence.

    I never wear a maple leaf, but I do love beer.

    Actually, first Alberta, then BC, then Ontario, then NB and then QC, or something like that. Remember when the PC's ran Alberta for like 47 years???

    Sounds like pollsters need to do some sampling outside of urban areas in order to get better predictive results in their polls.

    Justin Trudeau: 'This Is Canada's Moment to Lead'

    The lowest unemployment rate in 40 years. The fastest growing wages in a decade. The lowest debt-to-GDP ratio among G7 nations. Delivering remarks in French and English, Trudeau offered flurry of statistics in a bid to convince the audience of CEOs before him—including the top executives of Cisco, Johnson & Johnson, and SAP—that his government was worth betting on.
    “We’re the only G7 country with a free trade deal with every other G7 country,” he said. “This is Canada’s moment to lead, and we’re making it easy for you to lead with us.”
    But what about the tribalism creeping across the globe? Isn’t that a problem for business? Trudeau wasn’t terribly flustered by the prospect. “In three years, Canada was able to close a free trade deal with Europe…and moved forward on saving NAFTA,” making progress at a time “when trade deals aren’t in fashion anymore,” he said. Why? Because Canada understands what’s motivating individual citizens.
    There's not very many positive posts in this thread, it's a lot easier to focus on mistakes and things we disagree with (after all, there's plenty to criticize) and not notice the good things, so just a reminder that there are some positives right now as well.

    Great comment...When the Liberals assumed power, Canada had 3 major pipelines in final stage approval process and one in limbo (Keystone). Investment capital was moving into the oil sands for the longer term and oil prices were starting to recover. Then the Sock Puppet put a tanker ban in to scuttle the Northern Gateway, Denis the Polluter in Montreal helped stage an end to Energy East ( aided by Liberals eco nuts) but at least we had Kinder Morgan. What could wrong? Robed idiots, loons and Liberal financial spending has put us on the verge of being an investment wasteland.

    it's just that either the headline writer or the typesetter got it wrong.

    i think it was meant to read "Justin Trudeau: 'This Is Canada's Moment to Leaf'".

    and that at some point he might also have said "things aren't really getting any better but we are hopeful that pretty soon people won't mind as much".

    Zekelman said he was making those claims based on his personal connections with U.S. President Donald Trump's circle; he said he has dined with Trump and has met with Lighthizer. He said he believes the Americans will drop their 25 per cent tariff on steel if Canada agrees to limit its exports into the U.S. through a quota system.


    "This can be solved. Literally, I can do it this afternoon," Zekelman said. "How do I know that? I've talked to Mr. Lighthizer myself."

    The PM assures is that our privacy will be protected. But wouldnít explain as to why this info is needed in the first place. No damn way would I want anyone to have this info....itís called private for a reason

  57. #3057

    And the data remains private... Once the data is compiled by Stats Canada it will be made anonymous in order to remove personal identifiers, according to Tebrake.

    why? Did you not read the article?

    “We were told that this kind of information is used to gain insight into various consumer trends, such as tourism and travel. It also helps in validating other necessary information such as household addresses and residential occupancy,” he added.

    ie what Stats Canada does with all the data they collect. Stats Canada doesn't just collect data for fun. Having current information is extremely useful for allowing the government to be proactive instead of reactive.

    Well they are not going to go into my bank account, feel free to volunteer

    I so wish JT would SHUT UP. The fact that he would say "your privacy will be protected" is proof that he doesn't know what he is talking about. More and more we find out about online security breaches as they happen, our credit cards are compromised and accounts get hacked.

    Personally I wouldn’t be concerned if they got our banking, brokerage or any other financial information for statistical purposes. However I don’t believe for a minute that it’s secure. Everything is getting hacked these days.

    I wouldn’t even mind if the Feds prepared my tax returns by taking all my financial information, cash flows and net savings (if any) and then just had me review it for minor modifications, accuracy, etc.

    Well, that's your opinion, we're all allowed them..
    I've seen a lot of backlash on this
    If the banks allow this, every Dept can look into your bank account. Our bank and our bank manger so far have said they haven't signed off on anything..stay tuned.

    Just in case that's too big of a word to understand:

    anonymized
    Verb[edit]

    anonymized

    1. simple past tense and past participle of anonymize

    Adjective[edit]

    anonymized (comparative more anonymized, superlative most anonymized)

    1. (of data, claims or statements) Having had identifying information stripped, such that it cannot be linked to the person who owned or made it.

    Freeland's 'Trump-style tweet' to Saudis damaging to Canada: Baird - BNN Bloomberg
    August 08, 2018

    “Saudi Arabia’s central bank and state pension funds have also ordered overseas asset managers to sell off Canadian investments, according to a report by the Financial Times.

    “What’s really needed is the prime minister to get on a plane and get over to Riyadh and try to resolve this issue,” said Baird, now senior advisor with Bennett Jones. “That’s in the interests of Canada and Canadian workers and the Canadian people.”

    Baird added Canada should treat Saudi Arabia like an ally, especially in light of London, Ont.-based General Dynamics Land Systems’ $15-billion contract to supply military vehicles to the kingdom. The deal with Saudi Arabia was struck by former prime minister Stephen Harper in 2014.

    “I don’t think they’ve handled this issue well,” Baird said. “When you sign a $15-billion arms deal, [Saudi Arabia] sort of expect a thank you, especially from the 3,000 jobs that are really at risk in London, Ont. We should be standing beside a friend and ally like Saudi Arabia.”

    Baird also added that geopolitical strategy should be considered in keeping the Saudis happy.

    “They have the threat from the Islamic State next door that would love to take Mecca and Medina. We want them to be able to defend themselves,” he said. “We don’t want Iran – they’ve already taken out the government in Yemen – and obviously the Saudis are pushing back against Iran.”
    Baird also said that the current regime is working towards modernization.
    “We share the same interests as the Saudis, but we disagree on some values,” Baird said.

    Yep, the future of Canada is not looking too good right now. Years of stalled pipelines, lax immigration laws and a weak federal government are all coming home to roost now. Our economy is not doing so well, business sentiment is low, increased entitlements at all levels of governments - I wonder if the sun is finally setting on Canada.... We had it good for a long time I suppose, and it was good while it lasted. Nothing lasts forever in the end.

    i would trade what we're getting from trudeau and moreau for what we got from harper in a heartbeat.

    the real losers in what we're getting now from our federal government are the other 36,709,998 Canadians.
