Welcome to JPR Canada
Welcome to JPR Canada
This group is a place for Canadians to post about politics and any other topic of interest about our country, provinces or communities. The welcome mat is also out for anyone who has an interest or question about Canada, eh?
Canada is a big country and it would be nice to see where people in the group are from. Here’s my story. I was born in BC and lived here all my life. My early years were spent in Smithers, lived briefly in Haida Gwaii when it was still known as the Queen Charlottes, then moved to southern area of Vancouver Island, around Victoria. I grew up in quite a politically conservative area where everyone complained about Trudeau, although I secretly admired his je ne sais quoi. I mean, how many other heads of state would have the gall to do a pirouette behind the queen?
I think my first federal vote was for Joe Who, I thought he was a decent guy and I liked his feminist wife Maureen McTeer. After they deposed him I protest voted for the Rhino party because I couldn’t decide who in the big parties I disliked the least. I finally became more politically educated and involved when Mulroney campaigned on NAFTA because of all the hype on the issue. When I dug into it, I decided that Mel Hurtig and his National Party made the most sense, and that Mulroney was a big liar. The provincial NDP was in my bad books at that time too because of Clayoquot but in spite of that, since then, I’ve pretty much stuck with the NDP both federally and provincially. I like John Horgan very much provincially, and it will be interesting to see what they are going to do federally. I miss Jack Layton. As for Justin, I can say he’s a prettier face than Harper, but he’s sure doing some things I’m not liking. Site C dam and pipelines and he’s not consulting with First Nations like he promised.
So anyhow, the welcome mat is out for this group, and please feel free to introduce yourselves too.Shlabotnik, nenagh, Mom Cat and 4 othersmak3cats, Haikugal, Spanishprof27, RufusTFirefly like this
