warning signs in Canada
Trudeau is under investigation for ethics breaches:

This could get worrisome if it leads to a power vacuum.

Mulcair is over-reacting. I wish he wouldn't, I really want the NDP to get their act together before the next election/s, and dramatics over the Trudeaus long term family friends won't do anyone but the conservatives any favours. The man was one of Pierre's pallbearers.

and even if one does not seriously believe this idea that putin pulls trump's strings, there is still the very real concern that trump does not even know we are wrangling for control of the arctic at the moment and will lose by default by doing nothing.  this concern extends to most aspects of the federal government and united states policy - anything that isn't shiny enough to get his attention.

The Clark years were pretty good in BC until the fudge-it budget.

The actual shooting suspect is 27-year-old Alexandre Bissonnette, a white French Canadian who is, by all appearances, a rabid anti-immigrant nationalist. A leader of a local immigration rights groups, Fran├žois Deschamps, told a local paper he recognized his photo as an anti-immigrant far-right "troll" who has been hostile to the group online. And Bisonnette's Facebook page - now taken down but still archived - lists among its "likes" the far right French nationalist Marine Le Pen, Islam critics Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens, the Israeli Defense Forces, and Donald J. Trump (he also "likes" the liberal Canadian Party NDP along with more neutral "likes" such as Tom Hanks, the Sopranos and Katy Perry).

Does this mean atheists have to come out and condemn this guy qua atheists?

I'm well aware. So every chance to make these people look stupid should be exploited.

There will be 3 am tweets if something comes of this.
1) Nobody listens to Jenny Kwan
2) Fewer listen to Michelle Remple
3) This was an interview broadcast on the CBC show The Current this morning, and nothing has come of it
4) The CBC report on their own shows in a way that makes me :unsure:

Trudeau backs off from electoral reform. Looks like the American elections worry him, but this might come back to bite the left in the ass if O'Leary surges. This could be bad.

I get that they don't have a consensus on what system to use, so a referendum isn't a good idea yet, but that's why you start discussing it now and maybe you say "sorry it won't be ready by 2019, because we'll still be working out the constituencies", but it'll be done for 2024 at least.
Why do I bother?

How about it being labeled a Hate Crime?  Is that a thing in Canada?

I don't think, watching Trump, that Canadians will be in a hurry to elect O'Leary, though obviously you never know.  There are a couple people in the Conservative leadership race that actually look like decent human beings to whom Trudeau could easily lose the next election if things don't go well (in particular the electoral reform renege, or a poor economic trend).

Liberal Party gonna Liberal.

The NDP needs a new and better leader. Mulcair is not a good representative of what most of us want to see from the NDP.

Not yet. The charges could change, given the police are still investigating.

That's called a corollary.  ;)
