A place to discuss Canadian politics and more general political topics through a Canadian lens.
There may not be the appetite for it, heck I might not actually have the appetite for it, but I think I'd like a place to respectfully discuss Canadian politics, so here's a thread. I hope the scope I laid out is adequate.
I've also felt that more general D&D (or P&C predecessor) threads like Climate Change and Minimum Wage tend to be dominated by a US perspective that doesn't always fit the situation in Canada so I hope there's room for that too.
The result of the US election has brought Pierre Trudeau's, "Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant." to mind for me. There's a lot to worry about there in terms of the trade, economy, and our general relationship but it's not as if such a thing couldn't happen here.
Of course there's a lot going on domestically as well. The appalling standard of living so many Indigenous people, carbon pricing, the federal Conservative leadership race, federal electoral reform, PEI's electoral reform, Yukon's election, provinces competing for Canada's Worse Government™, and more(!).
