    I can't wait for the liberal Canadian PM to move the Canadian people into the realm of deficit spending with the intent of never paying the money back.

    The only ones to make out on deficit spending are the banks, who created the idea for gov to have money to spend, which otherwise might not have the funds due to enough funds not being generated through taxation.

    It is designed to thin the herd of candidates by dissuading them due to the cost of running a campaign; which is why there are PACS - Political Action Committees. The major donor money goes to PACS, even though the candidates raise huge sums themselves.

    Explain this 'Old stock was inferred to mean WASPS, white anglo saxon protestants' Who decided that this is what was meant to mean WASPS? In other words this relates to the sentence you mention prior. Was a college professor, a linguist, a SJW, or an opponent?

    Couple of points you old men should consider:
    1. The guy who won is a lot younger that the guy who lost.
    2. Voter turn out was way up.
    3. Voter turnout among the 'younger' voters was way, way up.
    4. The winning candidate won in every major city. Big time.

    Harper and his advisors made a lot of mis-calculations but I doubt that he could have won even with the perfect campaign. It has been 100 years since a Prime Minister won four times in a row. No matter which party you like after 10 years change is probably a good idea.

    I liked Harper at first but then he did not follow-up on his promises. You guys have the term RINO to describe what I feel about Harper and much of his 'conservative caucus. I wish we had a word like that.

    Another big problem for Harper is that a few of his conservative back-benchers were (are) religious nut-jobs. They turned me, and many others, sour on the whole party. That being said I still voted conservative as they are the best of a lousy choice. I'm actually not too annoyed that they lost, but I would have like it to be closer.

    Getting back to the first points: look at which U.S. Presidential candidate has the largest numbers of under-30's following their campaign electronically and you'll probably see who has a VERY good chance of winning. Policy and logic seems to take a back seat to instant messaging.

    One good thing - this was our longest campaign ever and people are complaining of the cost. I'm very glad we don't have to spend what you Americans do.

    Here's Harper's quote and Canada's take on that quote regarding immigrants, specifically refugees:

    We do not offer them a better health-care plan than the ordinary Canadian can receive. I think that's something that both new and existing and old-stock Canadians can agree with

    His old-stock Canadians remark, instead of going unnoticed, immediately unleashed an onslaught of questions over what old stock meant, whether it had racist overtones and whether it was part of an overall Conservative campaign to engage in identity politics or stoke fears against other groups.

    Old stock was inferred to mean WASPS, white anglo saxon protestants.

    Harper's original Reform party had this to say about immigration, noted from Wikipedia:

    The Reform Party advocated an immigration policy based solely on the economic needs of Canada. Reform's early policy proposals for immigration were seen as highly controversial in Canada including a policy pamphlet called Blue Sheet that was issued in mid-1991 stating that Reformers opposed "any immigration based on race or creed or designed to radically or suddenly alter the ethnic makeup of Canada". The statement was considered too controversial and subsequent Reform Party policy documents did not declare any similar concern for a radical alteration of the ethnic make-up of Canada. However this controversy and others raised the question over whether Reform was intolerant to non-white people and whether the party harboured racist members. Subsequent repeated accounts of xenophobic and racist statements by individual Reform party supporters and members spread this concern, though the party itself continuously denied that it supported such views.

    Explain to me why he is a racist. What facts/actions/statements of Harper earn you labeling him a racist? Always interested when people throw this label around when they don't agree with another's policy or political view.

    As the only Canadian posting on this topic so far, all I can say is thank you Canadians for getting rid of that ultra-conservative right wing racist and egomaniac, Harper.
    Trudeau and the Liberals will be a breath of fresh air, promoting economic growth at the expense of running deficit budgeting for a while. I have no problem with refugees streaming into my country. As long as they are productive Canadians who do not rely on welfare or the prisons for support and lodging, welcome to all. They are coming to the land of milk and honey from hell.

    And yes, handguns are not welcome here.
    I am forever grateful for that law.
    While on that topic, I feel really badly for my US neighbours.
    It seems that either every citizen should carry, or none should carry.
    Otherwise, be prepared for even more senseless massacres of innocent Americans.
    I'm done. Hammer away.

    Trudeau and his wife are young and attractive. I mean, who cares that he's a nitwit?

    Maybe the new PM can institute a buyback gun program like Australia's. Hillary can then point to Canada as promoting common sense gun laws meant to stop violence and killing because of firearms.
