I think we may have been speaking past each other. My apology if that was the case.
What I'm saying is I don't understand how a meat-eater could politically oppose hunting, such that they'd seek to prevent others from engaging in it, even if it is sustainable hunting, not poaching - which any...
I won't defend the idea; looking at our current leadership, it's hard to believe it could be properly implemented and managed (in terms of secondary effects). Plus, it's hard to get the actual facts, given all the propaganda on both sides.
Part of me thinks they're half-assing it...
slight correction: ICE bans don't actually ban ICE cars, you just can't make them anymore.
If the 2035 bans stay in place, every car on the road then won't be an EV, we just won't see more ICE cars added to traffic from then on.
A personal choice not to hunt does not make one anti-hunting.
Even a vegetarian is not necessarily anti-meat.
Every single personal choice is not, also, a political stance.
So I don't know why you would assume I was talking about personal choices. I really don't care what others choose to do...
Maisonneuve just put this out today.
This exactly. All of it. That's /thread right there.
Couldn't say it in better or fewer words.
@Lumber What in the honey boo boo coffee crisp sunny sunday with a cherry on top is this take? Now, I knew you were left-wing but Jeeeeesus Christ on a bike. This is LEFT left.
I can't imagine being a meat eater but also anti hunting. Is that a real stance that some people have, beyond just being repulsed by the acts of killing and butchering?
I think it might make even less sense than being a flat earther.
Thomas Jefferson said "the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Manifestly, Canadians and West Europeans are content to leave the bleeding to the Americans.
Grow my tree, you imperialist bastards!
My exact thought as well!
I thought, mathematically, the ''average'' student gender is probably closer to non-binary or something like that, somewhere in the middle of the spectrum, if a bit further on the female side. 😅
A tug of war is a good way to describe just about any healthy (viable) act or policy, even on a personal level. Checks and balances, diminishing returns, complementarity. All concepts that help define a proper framework of action.
I've already outlined the importance of facilitating the...
If we let our energy sector do its work, that would reduce the impact of the carbon tax anyway.
The latter's aim, as @kev994 explained, is to push companies to become cleaner, not particularly to change consumer behaviour.
Paying another 100$ in fuel a year won't make me sell my car, but when...
Trucks aren't a human right. People do just fine in Europe and Japan with public transportation.
We're also not asking everyone to get an electric vehicle right away.
Now of course we're a massive country, so we can't expect our transportation infrastructure to mirror Europe's, but we can make...
I was thinking more of the blatantly sexist tropes!
But while you mention it, I do wonder if that gratuitous killing, especially in video games such as GTA, actually has an impact on mass murder occurrence. I know, I know, that correlation has been dismissed many times... but not with surgical...
Would apply to Ontario too if Doug Ford hadn't scrapped it.
Nothing to do with Quebec or any "special treatment", this is just more lowly hate-based populist politics.
"Implement your own or follow the federal model" has always been the deal for the carbon tax.
This is one of those dastardly situations where I can't correct someone's English because I don't know if they made one of the classic blunders or they're just being very creative...
@Remius Whaddya mean? What was it about, then?
I'm generally on the pro-vaccine side, I just don't think it had...
