CBC news highlight list

"A law to ensure for every federal regulation added, one must be removed."


People eat too many donuts, we should regulate. Yeah, let's do that! I need to get rid of a pesky toluene disposal issue.


Yayy Canada.

I think the Canadian gov't is just fucking around to see if people are even still paying attention... Everyone is concerned with US politics nowadays.

Would you rather have regulated donuts or government shutdown?

In recent history, our government has already been shut down (though in a somewhat different way)... twice.

It was the first time that a Canadian government had been toppled by a straight motion of non-confidence proposed by the opposition. As a result, Parliament was dissolved and a general election was scheduled for January 23, 2006.

Hilariously enough, the cited reason seems to be

the Liberals had lost NDP support in the house by refusing to accept an NDP plan to prevent health care privatization

(and then Harper swooped in to dissolve the government and trigger a new election).

The government was dissolved once more in 2011, by the same mechanism.

The 40th Canadian Parliament was dissolved in March 2011, after his government failed a no-confidence vote on the issue of the Cabinet being in contempt of parliament.

Wait, wouldn't the liberals want to stand against privatization by thevery definition of their name?

might be thinking of the wrong party

That would mean shutting down private health clinics that have been growing in popularity around that time.
