It's not clear what would get out of an election. his highest political aspiration is apparently to just use the NDP as an endless hardcore social-justice tumblr-style platform for ultra woke sloganeering. But he already has that.

I’m also proud to have advocated carbon tariffs before they were hip! :)

Extending the carbon tax to the carbon content of imports from countries that do not price emissions would ensure a level playing field for workers. The US Democrats and EU have embraced this progressive policy. Why is it taboo in Canada’s ?

Trudeau has a far more compelling justification for the delay than Chrétien.

The Bank of Canada has been right to buy bonds. But do we believe that the goal of buying bonds was to boost inflation from 0% to 2%? Clearly, the goal was to stabilize and save jobs. Let’s update the Bank mandate to reflect reality.

Since Meili ran for the leadership three times, he has far more leaders’ debate experience than Moe, who quickly became premier based on a single leadership race. It’s rare to see an opposition leader so much more comfortable than the premier on the stage.

The analogy to the 1986 deficit may be fair, but we are far from 1986-type election promises.

Both parties envisage 1980s-style deficits because the deficit is already that big, not because their election promises would add much to it. Annual platform commitments (new spending + tax cuts) are about 4% of current provincial spending for the & 1-2% for the SP.

The Declaration can’t be called a fraud simply because its online sign-on feature is (unsurprisingly) open to fraud. Its arguments should be evaluated on their merits, not based on X number of health professionals signing (beyond the original list of signatories, which stands).

Since the also commits to “addressing corporate tax avoidance,” it will be important to clearly define (and properly limit) which companies are eligible for the clean-tech tax break.

The commits to halve the corporate tax rate for companies “making zero-emissions products.” “Products” may just refer to “zero-emissions vehicles and batteries” from the preceding paragraph, but it could be broader. Text:

one of the most stupefying acts of Cdn political cowardice was turfing over nut-job harassment complaints (boosted by—who else?—). Long-term effect: Dippers weaponizing harassment issue to win local feuds…against women

Who would've ever thought that intersectionality, a doctrine that arithmetically ranks people's worth on the basis of perceived oppression, would be weaponized by politicians competing for status & power in a party that claims to represent the oppressed
