Yep, that's some serious contortion. You can see his smokin' hot body through his shirt. I'd like a home delivery please, but leave that hunk of junk at the bottom of the stairs....

'He's not a bigot': Bobby Orr calls Don Cherry's firing 'disgraceful'
Orr said co-host Ron MacLean, who nodded along with Cherry's remarks, threw his long-time friend under the bus: 'Shame on him'

Bobby Orr is perhaps the greatest hockey player in history.   His knees are shot so he likes to fly fish from a canoe for Atlantic salmon on the rivière Gran Cascapédia in Quebec's stunningly beautiful Gaspé peninsula.

I agree.  Don Cherry is not a bigot.  He just has a big, lose mouth.  He still should have been thrown under the bus a long time ago.

I understand the 'intention' but seriously.

First time I bought beer, I was 13 years old.  Yes, I bought it in Hull, Quebec.  I could not have accomplished the same feat in Ontario.  By the age of 16, I was buying beer in Ontario.

Given your petrol prices, the oil companies must be making an everlovin fortune off sales within the country because it can't all be tax.

Not passing judgement on the environmental impacts of pipelines but exporting resources only serves to raise internal prices which provides little in terms of employent benefit to the country while damaging manufacturing and other high-value industries.
 
Good observation.  Making an "everloving fortune" is a bit of an exaggeration.   Note, that western Canada produces much more oil than is regionally refined so all the companies including the ones that are vertically integrated — have refinery operations — would benefit from global crude oil pricing.  

That said, some of the vertically integrated operations like Imperial Oil (Exxon) and Suncor (includes PetroCanada) were arguing against production caps introduced by the former NDP provincial government and continued by the current Conservative provincial government.  

The production caps were introduced in recognition of the absence of sufficient pipeline capacity.  Naturally insufficient takeaway capacity had been staring producers in the face for some time but producers behaved liked rational self-serving agents in a social dilemma model under the guise of "freedom".    Why take into account what others are doing if you only care about yourself?

Social dilemma models, more general versions of the Prisoners dilemma, explain freeway congestion, air pollution including carbon emissions, overharvesting of fish., the arms race, the obesity epidemic, etc.

Domestic fuel pricing
.     Gasoline and diesel in North America tend to trade as if linked to the Brent Crude benchmark.  The amount of net exports  seems to have little or no impact. 

Besides the fact that God wants you to die in an automobile accident or that God wants people to die from invisible small particulate matter in the air, cheap, polluting, deadly energy is a really bad idea.    Efficiently produced energy is a good idea.

My view?   Pipelines are the small ecological footprint resource-related activity in British Columbia.   Farmers and ranchers constantly take a toil on many watersheds in the southwest corner of the province.  

If anything consumption of dirty fuels such as diesel and gasoline should disciplined.   That is hard to do in North America where so many feel such a strong entitlement to cheap energy (no matter how many Americans and Canadians die on an annual basis) that many were supporting the invasion and occupation of Iraq ..... in the name of cheap energy.

The Conservatives won the popular vote but the Liberals get the first opportunity to form the government.

Gotta love first-past-the-post electoral systems.

I did not listen to the English debate but heard/read that the moderators failed to keep order.

That problem did not occur during the French language debate.  The moderators were merciless.

Two observations:

1.  The anglophone leaders' spoken French is much better than what you might have heard 30, 40 years ago.

2.  Jagmeet Singh's spoken French is very good.  Some Sikh dude in a bright orange turban who speaks French better than all the other anglophone candidates?   Unnerving.  -hehe-


Notes for non-Canadians:   Jagmeet Singh is the leader of the NDP.  New Democratic Party or New Democratic Populists as I like to call them.  This party could end up holding the balance of power if the Liberals are returned with a minority position.   

The NDP is a direct descendant of the  Cooperative Commonwealth Federation (CCF) that catalyzed the birth and growth of the modern Canadian welfare state.

Folks are scared of gang bangers.   Violent hip hop culture is not well understood.  Or should I describe that as violent, misogynistic inner-city culture?   It has a strong appeal among young First Nations.  

Now will Scheer suggest that Canada slow down immigration from the Punjab region of India in order to maybe reduce the rate of targeted shootings in Greater Vancouver?   No.   Targeted shootings make life more interesting, more entertaining.  

Besides, sacrificing a few lives of fellow citizens is definitely worthwhile in order to avoid the 'racist label'.
