    Both cities live off nationalized resources that are priced by international government bodies. We’re all essentially socialists pretending to be free market advocates to different degrees.

      Top_Dawg is insinuating that Randy will be performing anal sex on Trudeau if he wins the election. Randy Boissonault is the openly gay MP for Edmonton Centre (at least until Monday). Pretty cut & dry case of schoolyard-level homophobic "jokes".
      Nothing wrong with that. As long as they both consent to it and use protection.

        Apparently Mr. Obama hasn't been keeping up with all the scandals and screwups of his bud north of the border.

          I don't think the cities are really that much different politically underneath it all, but there seems to be a more aggressive Conservative tendency in Calgary to try shut down, ridicule or intimidate other opinions or dissent, so anyone who doesn't go along with the prevailing group think tends to be quieter or not as noticed there.

            Obama is buds with Andrew "Nobody asked if I'm an American/I totally forgot that I'm not actually an insurance broker/etc." Scheer? Who knew?

            • Latest Nanos poll. You know, where 22 million of 36 million people live and therefore, most of the seats.

              Liberals maintain lead in Quebec, Ontario battlegrounds: Nanos

              In Quebec, the Liberals maintained their lead through the third wave, which concluded on Thanksgiving Sunday.


              “The Liberals still have an advantage in the province of Quebec,” Nanos told CTV’s Trend Line podcast on Wednesday morning. “But the Bloc is still doing quite well.”


              Overall in the province, the Liberals have 34.7 per cent support with a sizeable lead over the Bloc Quebecois at 24.5 per cent.


              Notably, the NDP has picked up steam in Quebec, climbing from 11.2 per cent in the first week of the campaign to 15.5 per cent, and are now neck-and-neck with the Conservatives who are at 15.5 per cent. The Conservatives have in fact fallen 4.8 percentage points in the province since the start of the campaign.

              ---

              Meanwhile, in Ontario, the Conservatives have fallen 6 percentage points since the campaign began, and now sit at 28.4 per cent support, giving the Liberals a sizable lead of 13 percentage points in the province.


              In the 905 area code surrounding Toronto, the Liberals and Conservatives were deadlocked in a tie less than a month ago, but the Conservatives have since fallen 8.8 percentage points to 30.2 – giving the Liberals a sizeable lead with 42.9 per cent support.

              • All joking aside, It's actually quite the opposite Dave.

                From what Top_Dawg discerns Emmonton is home to so many public sector and MUSH sector union members that their shrill shrieking drowns out the severely normal discourse that occurs in the city of heifers and the rest of the province.

                So called self annointed ' progressives ' in garlic city live in a bubble.

                A very enclosed bubble.

                Top_Dawg travels the province regularly.

                He sees and hears what people outside the bubble are saying and feeling.

                There was one thing in the provincial election that astonished even Top_Dawg.

                The vote counts in Emmonton's bedroom communities.

                Whereas there was enough public and MUSH sector union employees that swung the vote in capital city ridings - even a mere five to ten kilometers outside of the city the NDs were annihilated.

                St. Albert
                Beaumont
                Spruce Grove
                Leduc
                Sherwood Park
                Ardrossan
                You name it

                NDs were slaughtered. Incumbents yet.

                Not by a close margin.

                By thousands and thousands and thousands of votes.

                Emmonton really is an aberration when it comes to the politics of the province.

                  Alberta "severely normal"? You must be joking. Oh yeah, places where there is a balance between conservative and non conservative voices, they are the abnormal ones. Really?

                    This is what Albertan separatists have been saying, that there is a disproportionate bias towards Quebec in this country, and large regions of the nation (and not just Alberta) are getting completely ignored.
                    Maybe if Alberta actually voted for someone else besides conservatives every election, there would actually be a need to try and build support in Alberta, but the conservatives know they will win most seats here without doing much, and the liberals/NDP know they don't have a chance, so they don't bother.
                    Scheer isn't exactly spending much time in Alberta either, so for the Conservatives who complain about Alberta being ignored, you've done it to yourselves. Politicians go to where there is a possibility to persuade voters to change their vote, not to a place where most of the voters vote for the same party every time like sheep.

                    • Really ?

                      Top_Dawg is too lazy to look it up in a definitive manner.

                      And Top_Dawg is not a die hard conservative by any means. He would frog march all politicians into a public square - regardless of stripe - and guillotine them immediately.

                      But off the top of his head Top_Dawg thinks of the very recent provincial elections.

                      Saskatchewan elects a conservative government.
                      Ontario elects a conservative government.
                      Manitoba re-elects a conservative government.
                      Some province in the maritimes - Top_Dag forgets which one ( they are all the same to him ) - elects a conservative government.

                      Seems like it's sweeping the country.

                      So yeah - it's beginning to be pretty severely normal.

                        It is normal to alternate between parties, in Saskatchewan and Manitoba over the years mostly between the NDP and Conservatives, in Ontario mostly between the Liberals and PC's. Also similarly in the maritime provinces you alluded to. One of those provinces New Brunswick, elected Liberals last time for a term and now the PC's. Therefore, it would be normal if Alberta elected a different party Provincially in the next election. Sticking with the same party for 40+ years is not normal.

                        • I suppose it's kind of cool that America's first black president endorsed Canada's first black Prime Minister.

                          • It's funny how posters on here seem to think that anyone who doesn't agree with every single thing a conservative politician does then must be a liberal. If anyone who doesn't agree with you is liberal or "left of you", you may want to reconsider your worldview. Especially when you view the most conservative places in the most conservative province as the norm.

                            I mean I have some pretty conservative friends and family (who have voted C their whole life), but they're at least able to recognize that some of our current conservative politicians are far from perfect, and in some cases even starting to pull further to the right.

                            I've never met anyone in real life who is as vitriolic, hyperbolic, reactionary, and partisan, hypocritical as some of the posters on here. It's pretty sad that they think that's normal.
