700 physicians, general practitioners, specialists, residents and medical students in Quebec signed a petition.

Quebec alone has 10,000 doctors.

Overstate much?

The funny thing is there should be no Canada...if George Washington had been a half decent strategist we would have taken it over at the very beginning of the War for Independence...but it probably - I suppose - could be argued Canada has been a blessing...itís mellow reasoned existence a nice counterweight to the US...Canada is to the US as Uruguay is to Argentina...an arguably fortunate historical accident

pffff... this is a thinly-veiled variation of anne coulter's "canada should be happy that the US lets it exist"...   

by the same token, the US is lucky that the british (future canandians) let the US continue to be, given the complete and thorough sacking  they put on Washington DC.  had they continued their campaign instead of retreating once their point was made, they would have caused the US to collapse.   

so maybe we should just call it even ;D

same line of thinking: what does baseball *really* have to do with the US?  Most professional baseball teams aren't in the US.

and most Olympic hockey teams aren't in Canada.

Second, why would a Canadian cop be wearing a bulletproof vest with all the wonderful Canadian gun policies you tout?

correct, looks like an OPP (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ontario_Provincial_Police) officer.  mounties are national, and in many remote locations (AKA most of the country) the only police force, but there are provincial and municipal police forces as well.

Second, why would a Canadian cop be wearing a bulletproof vest with all the wonderful Canadian gun policies you tout?

for protection from stray americans.

Wait, Canadians aren't down with OPP?  So much so that they need officers?  That's not very friendly...

for protection from stray americans.

I see - Canadians think every American is a gun-toting jack-ass, much the way 45 thinks every Mexican is a raping murderer.  That's not better.

i would LOVE to, but i'd need to extend my visit by 3 or 4 days... movie opens on 4/20. 

Oh, I'm well aware and I've already worked it out with the Mrs., who BTW, absolutely LOATHES Super Troopers with a passion like it was a bad date with an ex-boyfriend, because it was. And he was a Trooper. Great story, be sure to ask her!

*sigh*...

SNC-Lavalin is a big construction contractor.  they had contracts in libya, 2001-2011, that were supposedly won based on bribes they gave to libyan officials (including Qaddafi).  SNC has been under investigation for those bribes.  the government could either go big and prosecute in criminal court, possibly bankrupting the company; or pursue a negotiated settlement - which is what SNC wanted, given that it's faster, cheaper, and no one goes to jail.  the attorney general rejected the request for negotiations and started a criminal investigation.

the scandal is that the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) tried to intervene.  they tried to influence/pressure the AG and get her to go with a negotiated settlement.  just like in the US, the AG is supposed to be independent.  if the president or PM puts pressure on the AG = obstruction of justice.  SNC is based in Montreal, where Trudeau's home riding (district) is, so part of the message was "don't kill SNC because it's bad for my future election prospects".   apparently SNC did a ton of lobbying immediately after Trudeau was elected... and the law that allows the government to negotiate instead of investigate was enacted by the Trudeau government, leading some to say that it was created specifically to protect SNC.  lately, a bunch of ministers have been resigning to distance themselves from this developing scandal.  with each resignation, it's looking worse and worse for JT.

my un-hot take: JT done effed up.  it was illegal.  that being said, he is being held to an unfairly high standard.  if you look at the previous government (Harper), this SNC scandal is a drop in the bucket (https://www.thestar.com/news/federal-election/2015/08/14/a-conservative-collection-of-harper-government-scandals.html).  but because JT rode in on a high horse but didn't stick the landing 100%, he's now being dragged through the mud.  might cost him the upcoming election.  so for one (very bad) infraction, JT might be kicked out and replaced with something much worse - but that worse replacement isn't held to the same standards, so the bad shit they'll do will be swept under the rug just like with Harper.


analogy: after 4 horrible years of trump, someone like O'Rourke is elected.  he starts to right the ship, but after 3 years it is discovered that he tried to influence his AG in an illegal way.  despite it being his first scandal (vs. Trump's dozens of scandals over the same period), because he sold himself as righteous he gets crucified.  in retaliation, the voting public elects another trump in the next election... and will ignore that despot's dozens of scandals.  how enlightened.

I used to work for a company that was based in Toronto and about 15 years ago, I traveled up there for an on-site all staff meeting. All of a sudden, I was surrounded by Canadians that were my age and demographic. And every time I heard one of them earnestly say 'eh?' I was just so tickled. Yeah, it wasn't constant or ubiquitous, but it was like seeing an Australian say "dollaradoos" or a Brit saying "Cor blimey!" or an American shooting up a school.

last I checked
 the North Pole is located in the middle of the Arctic Ocean amid waters that are almost permanently covered with constantly shifting sea ice.


also
Currently, under international law, no country owns the North Pole or the region of the Arctic Ocean surrounding it.

it's part of canadian mythology that santa clause is canadian, he lives at the north pole, ergo the north pole is in canada.

santa's mailing address (https://www.ndtv.com/offbeat/santa-is-real-postal-code-is-h0h-0h0-canada-defends-the-myth-544115)? "... tens of thousands of children's letters from around the world addressed to Santa Claus, North Pole, H0H 0H0, Canada."

just like any other country in the world, there are canadian rappers. unfortunately the two that you would recognize used to rap a lot more, nowadays they tend to sing more: Drake and The Weeknd.  i doubt that names like the Dream Warriors, K-os, Abdominal, Rascalz, etc. would mean much to you (understandably). 


oh - Tom Green was in a rap group, Organized Rhyme, way back in the day ;D
