It is admirable level of uniformity and herd mentality to notice how the entire nation always comes as ONE team when it comes to cheating and other usual shenanigans regardless of activity or event.

But how much do you think you lost by sitting on the sidelines during this decade’s unprecedented growth? Easily hundreds of thousands, and all because you can’t and could never do a straightforward buy vs rent calculation. LOL.

“taxing property for highest and best use increases costs which potentially decreases land value”

Can you show an example of land being zoned for best use which increases the property tax that resulted in a decrease in land value? Of course you can’t because it has never happened. Commercial property taxes in Vancouver are 1% of land value. A rounding error for the property owner compared to the land value. But a huge expense for the business that leases the property and pays the taxes as part of the lease.

yes… right up until the business doesnt lease it and the owner is stuck footing the property tax bill. So no rental income and 1% carry cost is a rounding error??? Ok, lets go with that….

All land should be taxed highest and best use. That would get rid of all those ridiculous ‘community gardens’ as well as incentivize landowners to fully develop their property instead of just holding it. And while they are at it, AirBnb providers should also be taxed at the commercial rate – you think that may incentivize people to either sell or long term rent their condos? Or homeowners to rent their suites long term? Or is 1% a rounding error there too?

Dummy, they’re following a process enshrined in the Constitution (remember that?) after a whistleblower’s report was corroborated by multiple testimonies and the White House’s own transcript. That’s setting aside the 10 counts of obstruction. The challenge he now faces is whether or not he can keep his mouth shut as opposed to further incriminating himself. Odds aren’t exactly looking awesome on that front, are they? Witness intimidation is second nature for some, I suppose.

Clinton maintained an approval rating over 60% throughout his impeachment, whereas Trump has not even once achieved that level of support during his entire presidency. Sad!

That’s in an election where climate became one of the bigger issues. The Liberals will come up with some type of climate plan and that will put the issue to bed.

SNC is hardly behind him. Jody Wilson Raybould is back in the house, and Trudeau no longer has a majority to block a deeper probe. And SNC still wants that deferred prosecution agreement, no matter what the ethics commissioner says. Do you think Trudeau will hold out on them, or will his new justice minister roll over, and how’s that going to look? He’s just as mired in pipeline vs environment as ever, with less and less to show for it — spending billions to mollify provinces that won’t elect a single Liberal, and alienating provinces he needs like Quebec and BC. He’s lost trust on the climate issue, and would have to flip-flop big-time to roll that back. Vote-split fear-mongering still worked to an extent, again, but much less so than in the last election, without the Harper bogeyman.… Read more »

BQ + Liberals = majority, true enough, so maybe no inquiry.

But the deferred prosecution agreement is a nasty dilemma. If a new Liberal justice minister grants a DPA the optics will be incredibly bad outside of Quebec and the SNC scandal gets a new lease on life. If they deny the DPA, the BQ may be pissed off enough to help the other parties launch an inquiry after all.

Incidentally, I was pleased to learn from reading the conflict of interest report that Jody Wilson-Raybould did not support putting the DPA legislation in the omnibus bill, thought the consultations were inadequate, and refused to take the lead on introducing the DPA legislation. That was a missing piece in the discussion around her integrity — obscured by the cabinet confidentiality smokescreen. Learning those details cemented my vote for her.

No, the problem is the system that allows candidates to sign up new members with a promise on a particular issue. Scheer promised the dairy farmers to keep the quota system which Mad Max said he would abolish. He signed up thousands of non conservative dairy farmers who got him the leadership on the first ballot narrowly beating Mad Max. The same reason the NDP ended up with Jagmeet. They signed up a bunch of East Indians to get him the vote. What we as Canadians ended up with is two bad candidates.

Based on the election it looks like your vote was wasted too. Did your riding get a Conservative? If not it was every bit of a wasted vote as those who voted for the Peoples Party.

The Conservatives lost because Scheer is a dud. Blame the fools that put him in as leader. Lets hope this election loss will get the Conservatives a new leader. Mad Max has brought some great ideas to the table which were not even being discussed prior to him creating the Peoples Party. He has already done more for Canada than Scheer ever will.

Scheer was so dull and uninspiring, it took me a full year to remember his name. I kept forgetting.

As soon as they replace him I’ll forget his name within 15 minutes.

The 2016 popular vote only comes up because a certain somebody won’t accept that he’s the most unpopular president in modern history. As if any more evidence was required…..

No, retarded parrot it comes up because the fake news brings it up and you parrot it here. Just like your statement about Trump being “unpopular” when he is more popular than Obama was at this time of his presidency, more popular than Nancy Pelosy, more popular than congress, more popular than Trudeau, more popular than the news media and more popular than almost every European leader including the lefties Macron and Merkal.

Actually less popular than Obama today and almost every other day of his presidency so far aside from a small handful. And, overall, less popular than any other president in modern history. But of course that should come as no surprise – he’s never polled over 50%.

But of course you want to try and derail by comparing against other people who are not – and have never been – US presidents. How typical. How dumb.

9/18/19 DONALD TRUMP’S APPROVAL RATING SURPASSES OBAMA’S, NOT JUST ON RASMUSSEN REPORTS

President Donald Trump’s job approval rating this week averaged across major polls surpassed that of his predecessor President Barack Obama at the same time eight years ago

Dumbass, I already conceded that there were a handful of days where Obama’s approval rating dipped below Trump’s. But that a tiny fraction of his presidency so far, where he remains the most unpopular president in modern history. Not even a single day over 50% within the margin of error.

Seriously, what is wrong with you? But at least you now admit that Rasmussen are a joke. That’s a start.

Most unpopular president in modern history. It wouldn’t be quite so funny were he not so obsessed over his popularity. Some might call that karma.

Still, I’m sure his impeachment crowd will be the greatest yet. Many people are saying it. Just watch!

I suppose trying to change the subject is really your best and only strategy at this point.

Why do Trump’s humiliating approval numbers bother you so much? Do you think he’ll ever poll higher than 50%? It’s been over 1000 days of mediocrity, so perhaps a lucky break is due sooner or later, wouldn’t you agree?

You can’t provide a shred of evidence to support your warped perspective so you throw smoke bombs instead in the hope of changing the topic. It’s really quite sad to watch. Just concede that he’s unpopular and move on, it shouldn’t be such a stretch for a genius like you.

Still trying – and failing – to change the subject because you’re able to provide a single credible poll demonstrating an approval rating over 50% from the last 3ish years?
