"138 Gun registry: Supposed to cost $2 million, now at nearly $2 billion (even AG can't fathom it), with gun crimes rising."


Crimes involving guns have also risen in the United Kingdom since their gun ban.

Hey, we made the second top story of the day on BBC World News right after the collapse of the Ford company. The WORLD is watching, if Harpur wins, sorry world.

He said you were acting like a tool, not that you are one.

If the conservatives win, I'm expecting a rise in the TSX tomorrow. A conservative government would be huge boost of foreign investments in Canada.

For the record, after Clinton was reelected in the U.S., the stock market surged. Yet, there was no surge for either of Bush's elections. So merely having a "conservative" leader doesn't necessarily inspire confidence.

But who knows. I wouldn't rule it out, since sometimes merely having a change in leadership after years of another party's rule makes for irrational investor exuberance.

Yes, I know about Clinton's effect on the market. However, with all the political corruption in the Liberal government being exposed lately, foreign investors have been cautious of Canadian holdings. So I wouldn't interpret investor confidence as being irrational. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Who knows, the market could even dip down.

Do you think Alberta's success as a province is because of a Conservative run government or oil?

Especially since the conservative campaign was funded by foreign investment.

Gee, I wonder what they expect in return....hmmmm....

It's quite a task to convince any up and coming business students in alberta that Klein and the Conservatives are serendipitously benefitting from current prosperities in oil. The correlation between a strong economy and a deregulating conservative government is a fickle relationship. Tax breaks and an economy focused on immediate dividend is usually the short-term result of a conservative mandate, but since long term investment and resource concerns do not fit the bill of necessary spending... subsequent governments face the task of compensating for narrow-sighted economic gimmicks (like tax relief and refund subsidies). Fiscal balance within a Harper-like regime is a red herring that will be exposed when Canada no longer has primary industry or resource control to create capital.

In the next few months I will be given 500 dollars simply for being Albertan. That must mean things are great, right? Or is the provincial government simply trying to buy votes to protect industry lobbyists that propagate the depletion of our major source of finance? Something tells me that Stampede tourism will not tide us over in the next century.

So you think foreign investment interfering in a democracy is a laughing matter?
