    New WW2 Squad Shooter, free to play, Enlisted

    I haven't played those two, so I cannot say.

    New WW2 Squad Shooter, free to play, Enlisted

    No paywall so far, but it is the beta. I will say I like the maps a lot better in Enlisted. But overall, I would say they are similiar.

    New WW2 Squad Shooter, free to play, Enlisted

    There is a new WW2 squad shooter, free to play, from the same makers of war thunder. Called Enlisted, currently in open beta until launch. I have been playing the Normandy campaign so far, and I must say, this beats full priced 60-80 dollar games like battlefield and call of duty by a mile...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I mean, people can talk about it being science or not science, but I think the more pertinent point is how every single party in the HOC now supports some form of a carbon tax. The only party of note that doesn't is the PPC, and I don't see all the non carbon taxers flocking to them for some...

    https://pm.gc.ca/en/news/news-releases/2021/04/18/additional-support-ontario-fight-covid-19-outbreak Looks like help is on the way for Ontario, but interestingly, at least in terms or rapid testing and contact tracing, seeming to bypass the government of Ontario. Either way, some good news for...

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    I will agree that this is the best plan for the environment that the CPC has ever come up with. It doesn't do anything for me, but I can see those who own a home getting some use out of it. I do hope it's not a screw the poor type plan like the old tax credits for kids the CPC used to have...

    By all means, lets try to be better. There are definitely some things that can be done to best prepare the country for when the federal stimulus turns off and it comes time to pay for all this spending. But if Canada is in dire straights at debt to GDP levels at 100, then watch out for the USA...

    Hahahaha... Sure. But it would go about the same way as preparing for a conventional war versus the USA. You can do some things, but nothing is going to change the outcome. What we can hope for is low interest rates while the economy rebounds. 300-400 billion costs an extra 3-4 billion a...

    Okay, but which western country isn't in this boat? The UK is running a deficit somewhere around 300 billion pounds, (511billion CAD) France is around 315 billion Euros(11.4 percent of GDP, and around 483 billion CAD) And you have the Americans running 3.1 trillion (3.9 trillion CAD)...

    Nope. Haven't bought boots yet. And when I do, I'll likely wear them. As things stand, I currently get money back, that I can use on anything I want. Under the CPC plan, I get a green account which I can use on stuff like green cars, new greener furnace, bus passes, solar panels...

    Canada might be a great exporter of bicycles internationally.

    I rent, so I can't get solar panels. I cannot reasonably take public transit, so a bus pass does me no good. The place I rent doesn't support electric vehicles. What green stuff can a renter and personal vehicle user get with a green account? I'll get a bike. Then sell the bike.

    Come to think if it, I don't mine the CPC plan that much. I get my green savings account, use it to buy a bicycle, then sell the bicycle, and pocket the money. Rinse and repeat every year. Same as the LPC plan, just more work on my part.

    Another case for hope, Israel was under lockdown until they had vaccinated 37 percent of the country with the first dose. At which point after the curve was flattened, cases dropped even with reopening.

    I still give the edge to the one who would let me spend my carbon tax rebate on burgers as opposed to getting a new bicycle every year.

    So carbon tax A vs carbon tax B?

    Liberal Minority Government 2019 - ????

    So I guess next election I need to decide between liberal carbon tax that pays me back 90 percent of what I spend, or conservative carbon tax where I get a green account and can only buy green stuff.
