Only 99 days

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

There has been rumblings about this whole "guaranteed income" drivel again. Imagine how the manitoba border would look with that little carrot hanging there for the economic migrants of the world.

.... now a $400 dollar rebate to renters

Where is the money coming from?
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Jesus Christ. Lmao watching the NFG cutting their own throats again. A 15$ minimum wage is no good for anyone and will drive businesses out of the province. Short sighted commie idiots are the only ones lapping this shit up. And now they want to reward people for renting houses ? Like Topper says who is paying for all this shit ?

I'm not even sure what the point of that is. Is $400 a year supposed to be the difference between affording rent in Vancouver and living on the street? I'd honestly rather they take that money and at least target low income people who need it. I sure as hell didn't need a $400 cheque given to me when I rented in downtown Vancouver.

Most polls have the NFG ahead but they did in 2013 as well. I think Christy can pull this out of the fire. Only a loser would think 15$ an hour min wage is a good idea. Commie pricks.

Last election the NDP was miles ahead according to the polls and the Liberals still pulled it out.
This election the Liberals were practically tied with the NDP at the beginning.
Being the party in power usually leads to a negative bias at the start of the election.
The Liberals will do much better than the polls predict on election day.
Really this isn't much of an election, won't even be close, more a coronation.
Welcome to BC, land of Queen Christy. :P
We are all Jim Benning.

I don't want NDP but I do want some better services. The Liberals have slashed too much from well needed services to give tax breaks to the ones that need it the least. A few hundred dollars more for high income people and a little more for companies won't hamstring the economy. Use this money to improve specific services such as health care.

Not taking about wage increases but use it to open more hospital rooms etc.

Having seen up close the people in hallways in hospital beds, it is fucking depressing but money is not the only answer here . The Liberals can do better. Like Transit, the medical system needs an overhaul but the NDP would do more harm then good.

Blob you are a dinosaur spouting who same tired propaganda from the 50's

What has the political right done for you except raise taxes, cut services, lie through their teeth and padded their own bank accounts.

Only sucker could possibly continually point the finger at two governments out of a century's worth as the reason the provincial economy is in the toilet.

Instead of being a punk why not use your own brain and ask yourself logical questions instead of spouting rhetoric
