    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    I lived in NB when I was young, and I can say that is true. Acadians speak a different kind of French than Quebecois and are very proud of their Acadian language and culture.

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Cape Breton was its own separate colony for several decades, but later rejoined to NS. Wonder how much separatist sentiment is there? You might see them want to secede from a Maritime union claiming protection for Gaelic language and culture rights.

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    The two main things standing in the way of a Maritime union are PEI (as with original confederation, they are worried about losing their voice in a bigger union) and the Acadians. I doubt a Maritime union would be officially bilingual (like NB is now) as there would be a large Anglophone...

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    Making the mayors more powerful isn't the same as splitting the cities off as separate city-states/provinces. Basically, making mayors more powerful just makes them quasi-dictators. Not surprising that's supported by Doug Ford.

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    As long as that includes Gateau as well to form a Federal Capital Territory (kind of like Aussie's ACT) that would be fine.

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    If it were easy to do that, it would've been done already, at least in the Maritimes. That area was supposed to have joined as a single province with ON and QC to form Canada, but PEI got cold feet at the last moment. That forced NB and NS to join separately, setting things up for what we have...

    Victoria is facing a public-safety crisis

    So you're saying that it wasn't a wild animal, but an older lady hanging around, looking for a younger man? Some of those kinds of cougars can look scary. ;)

    Freedom Convoy protests [Split from All things 2019-nCoV]

    I would say that it would be easier to keep the GTA and the western part of the Golden Horseshoe as Ontario and split of rest as separate provinces. West of the new (smaller) province of Ontario, you'd have Hurona with the capital at London. Split the area north of the new province (of...

    What are you listening to/fav type of music

    Just picked up the new DISTURBED album - Divisive, listening to it now. Really good (if you're into Disturbed).

    What are you listening to/fav type of music

    I've got that one. Pretty good one in my opinion. (y)

    Favorite Issued Kit

    The RCAF great coat was incredibly warm. Though not issued to me (as I didn't serve), it was issued to my father. After he passed in '89, it passed to me and became mine. I wore it while I was at university in Edmonton, and it kept me toasty warm even though I only wore a shirt and jeans...

    The Decline of the Liberal Party- Swerved Into a Confederation Topic

    I live in Red Deer, and I feel sorry for them. :p

    From USAF to Space Force

    Do they only have one size of shirts? The sleeves look like they're too long (or is that the look they were going for? It does go well with the baggy, untailored look of the tunic).;)

    Matthew McConaughey and Uvalde

    Americans - can't get anything right. :p Got the political party colours ass-backwards. Blue is for conservative /the Right, and Red is for liberal/the Left.
