Who Are You Voting for?

I'm voting Projet Montréal. Richard Bergeron is kooky, but I can forgive him that because I find his party is the only one with a real vision and a vision I like at that! They also seem to be the only party that has any semblance of ambition, something that has been lacking in this city for way too long.

As a city, I find we've settled for too little, for too long. It's time to look forward and start giving ourselves the tools to turn into a world-class city. Projet Montréal leads in the right direction I feel.

Coderre is just more of the same old, same old. Oh my god, it's almost as if he used to be in the Liberal party!

Joly is intriguing and hot. However, I've never been swayed by the whole "lack of experience is a good thing" argument. It just means you're ripe for the picking by those with experience, waiting with a trap set for you.

In case you were wondering...

Here's a nice little breakdown of how things work in this city. Complicated for nothing, I think. It's no wonder things are falling apart. 

Basically, every borough needs a minimum of 5 people sitting in the

borough council. Second to that, every borough has the right to one
representative at the city council per roughly 15000 registered voters.
Mayors and city councillors have the right to sit at city council.
Borough councillors only have the right to sit at the borough council.

There are three types of compositions.

1. Boroughs with a mayor and only city councillors
2. Boroughs with a mayor and only borough councillors
3. Boroughs with a mayor and a mix of city and borough councillors.

Here are some examples. In Villeray, with 86000 registered voters, you

have the right to 5 people sitting at city council. Thus, the mayor of
the borough and 4 city councillors. They act as local representatives
and representatives at city council. All the big ones follow this
pattern (CDN-NDG, Rosemont, etc.)

Take Outremont, with 15000 registered voters. They can only have one

person sitting at city council. That would be the mayor. But they need a
minimum of 5 people sitting at the borough council. So the other 4 are
necessarily borough councillors. All the small boroughs follow this
pattern (like Ile Bizard)

Finally, Montreal North with 52000 reigstered voters, thus they have the

right to 3 people sitting at city council: the mayor and 2 city
councillors. They also need 5 people sitting in the borough council. So
the final 2 people are borough councillors. The mid-size boroughs follow
this pattern.

The make up of each borough is explained on this site

Essentially, the wide disparity between borough populations explains

this rather complex arrangement.

Bon vote.

An Evangelical Declaration on Global Warming

As governments consider policies to fight alleged man-made global warming, evangelical leaders have a responsibility to be well informed, and then to speak out. A Renewed Call to Truth, Prudence, and Protection of the Poor: An Evangelical Examination of the Theology, Science, and Economics of Global Warming demonstrates that many of these proposed policies would destroy jobs and impose trillions of dollars in costs to achieve no net benefits. They could be implemented only by enormous and dangerous expansion of government control over private life. Worst of all, by raising energy prices and hindering economic development, they would slow or stop the rise of the world’s poor out of poverty and so condemn millions to premature death.

  1. We believe Earth and its ecosystems—created by God’s intelligent design and infinite power and sustained by His faithful providence —are robust, resilient, self-regulating, and self-correcting, admirably suited for human flourishing, and displaying His glory.  Earth’s climate system is no exception. Recent global warming is one of many natural cycles of warming and cooling in geologic history.
  2. We believe abundant, affordable energy is indispensable to human flourishing, particularly to societies which are rising out of abject poverty and the high rates of disease and premature death that accompany it. With present technologies, fossil and nuclear fuels are indispensable if energy is to be abundant and affordable.
  3. We believe mandatory reductions in carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, achievable mainly by greatly reduced use of fossil fuels, will greatly increase the price of energy and harm economies.
  4. We believe such policies will harm the poor more than others because the poor spend a higher percentage of their income on energy and desperately need economic growth to rise out of poverty and overcome its miseries.

  1. We deny that Earth and its ecosystems are the fragile and unstable products of chance, and particularly that Earth’s climate system is vulnerable to dangerous alteration because of minuscule changes in atmospheric chemistry. Recent warming was neither abnormally large nor abnormally rapid. There is no convincing scientific evidence that human contribution to greenhouse gases is causing dangerous global warming.
  2. We deny that alternative, renewable fuels can, with present or near-term technology, replace fossil and nuclear fuels, either wholly or in significant part, to provide the abundant, affordable energy necessary to sustain prosperous economies or overcome poverty.
  3. We deny that carbon dioxide—essential to all plant growth—is a pollutant. Reducing greenhouse gases cannot achieve significant reductions in future global temperatures, and the costs of the policies would far exceed the benefits.
  4. We deny that such policies, which amount to a regressive tax, comply with the Biblical requirement of protecting the poor from harm and oppression.

In light of these facts,
  1. We call on our fellow Christians to practice creation stewardship out of Biblical conviction, adoration for our Creator, and love for our fellow man—especially the poor.
  2. We call on Christian leaders to understand the truth about climate change and embrace Biblical thinking, sound science, and careful economic analysis in creation stewardship.
  3. We call on political leaders to adopt policies that protect human liberty, make energy more affordable, and free the poor to rise out of poverty, while abandoning fruitless, indeed harmful policies to control global temperature.

‘What good is it to save the planet if humanity suffers?'

Great speech. Hopeless subject, but great speech.

And so it is.

I've always said the nazis tried to exterminate the jews because they were too much like them. They hold the same ideology : the nazis were the superior race, the jews are the chosen people. I don't see any difference. And thus this is the only logical consequence of such ideology.

Fuck Religion

I'm happy when religions get fucked. One of the many reasons for this is because religions fuck us all the time, and its a good and just retribution for this constant undesired spiritual molestation. It is by this order of reflexion that I signed the petition found here. Because religions have always been the number one cause for devolution.

Sign this shite, you morans! if ya gots half a bran!

It`s Time for Cat Massage!
