Not to detract from any of the posts in this thread, but I’ve never understood this saying.
Even as a child, when I would hear it, I’d always ask “What’s the point in having cake if we aren’t allowed to eat it?”
Nobody has ever explained to me what this saying actually means. 🧐🤨
You can't eat the cake and still have more cake to eat, is how I've always understood it.
Yes, that's exactly what I said. What? Waaaaiit a minute... You must have missed this part..."at least in the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island". I was raised on the Sunshine Coast. All my family except me stayed within a three mile radius of the house we grew up in. My siblings are both classical big money socialists. I've lived it first hand, not like the people I'm trying, and abjectly failing, to address here.
BC isn't the west, it just got drawn on the wrong side of the map.
I didn't miss it, I'm focused on the statement that came after.
I agree with you for the record. I hate the fact the election is over before I even cast my vote. I hate the fact that the interests of the west in general and the prairies specifically are often ignored in order to please the voters who put the government in Ottawa. My family is from the prairies, and most still reside there.
But you can't in the same breath accuse "the east" of not understanding then turn around and dismiss an entire province as misplaced on the map and also against the interests of the prairies. Yes, BC is run by idiots. But there's a lot of people here who don't fit your broad brush strokes, which it seems like you know.
