  1. Since when were these bad things? I think you need to have limits on gun ownership, for example having ex-convicts who have a history of commiting gun crimes should not be allowed to own guns, in my opinion. Should the internet not be regulated? Isn't child porn wrong? Doesn't the UN work for the betterment of the world, even if it is ineffective? Shouldn't we help those who can't help themselves (the welfare state)? If a woman wants to have an abortion shouldn't she be able to?
  2. I voted to keep the current system. As nag95 said, in the new system there would actually be less direct representation. My main worry though was the power it would give to minority parties, such as the Christian Heritage Party and Family Coalition Party. These are parties who want to ban gay marriage, revoke all abortion laws, and divert funding from public education into private religious schools (but only those of their religion, of course). If these parties knew they only had to get 3% of the popular vote in order to gain representation, they would run candidates in a lot more ridings. They wouldn't even have to win a single riding in order to be represented. Also, a lot of the details would not be worked out until after the government was elected. Scary to vote for something whose exact boundaries, limitations, and parameters you don't even know.
  3. lol, I never even knew there was such a thing as the "Convenience Stores Association" hahaha just seems funny.
  4. I'm not gonna defend the Liberals' accountability, but while they were in power they did erase the huge debt inherited from the previous Conservative administration, and then turn that into a massive surpluss. I don't think you keep surplusses going by cutting your income! And I definitely don't want Canada to end up like the US, owing everything it owns and more to China! I agree with all previous posts about social services. They are far more important than the 1% you save on each purchase.
  5. I don't understand how he couldn't be huge in the States, it seems like his music is very accessible to a large chunk of the population... he's one of my favourite artists and even my parents hum along when one of his songs comes on the radio, which is weird because they are strongly opposed to anything post-1979.
  6. I thought it was pretty good too, not the most exciting interview but it was a 2 minute clip so what do you expect? And about the use of cliches... every news station does that, not just the CBC. Just the way the news is I guess.
  7. Wow, I didn't know people could react so violently to something as mellow and harmless as a musical artist who plays solo/acoustic. Especially on this site, since Matthew Good does much the same... maybe on a death metal forum, yes, but not here.
  8. I thought all of the dead grandpa jokes were pretty rude and not funny at all. I have an immature sense of humour but that just seemed like a little too much, also made the plot quite unbelievable.
  9. The Simpsons and Hockey Night in Canada, if that counts as a show.
  10. Funny that the two places I have lived in my 20 years on this earth, Sarnia and Windsor, were both featured.
  11. Statler and Waldorf were funny but Prof. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker were the best. I always loved how Beaker got blown up or somehow spectacularly injured every episode, it never got old.
  12. That's hilarious... you really wonder who is running AT&T, who owns it. Probably the same people who own FOX (who in my opinion, should be strung up Texas-style).
  13. I would never even try to add a whammy bar to a guitar... you could very easily end up wrecking the whole thing. Never heard of it being done either, but it sounds dangerous.
  14. I never liked the Spice Girls (being a guy, this probably makes sense) and that feeling still stands. Why exactly are they getting back together? More money perhaps?
