"Racism didnt happen and isnt a problem"
I'm excited that Gary Burrill could be my MLA soon. The Liberals allowed massive tuition hikes to take place, and Gary's NDP want to eliminate community college fees altogether. Gary's clearly the best choice for my neighbourhood.
If you oppose Harpers agenda you need to vote for parties that disagree with him. That means NDP or Greens.
My vote is cast strategically: it is a tool to advance policies and values that I support. A vote for the Liberals or Conservatives is not strategic if you support hard targets on greenhouse gas emissions, or having oil lobbyists out of government inner circles. If you want lower tuition fees, stronger public health care, public childcare, public pharmacare, and legal protections for trans people, you need to elect a party other than the liberals or conservatives. If you want to repeal bill c-51, you need to think a bit deeper than "stop Harper" and vote for the NDP or Greens.
"A year later, and McCluskey and other proud Dartmouth citizens are infuriated that outsiders would claim their land and change their identity without even having a vote.
“How would you feel if you worked hard to create something and then had the name changed?” McCluskey asks.
“Um...” replied thousands of years of Mi’kmaq culture."
Commenters would benefit from not feeding the trolls, such as Col. Ivan Sonofabitch.
I think he makes an important point, that gentrification is about ownership and not about consumer choices. Buying local sausages isn't what prices working-class people out of the homes they've rented for decades.
Disappointed that The Cost is publishing this psuudoscientific, conspiracy theory quackery.
