    A recent article about conditions before the 2019 Alberta election, and how the NDP was desperate to spin poor jobs numbers:

    Default lol - personal attack by KP

    Nice! I guess that's one way to try and keep this place a conservative echo chamber.

    By the way, what's your feeling on effectively banning Cuban chess players from coming to Canada?

    Here's the wiki re: the Israel-Palestine conflict; perhaps a hint of how contentious it is can be gathered from the disputed neutrality of parts of the article itself, alone:

    Some good news at last for the federal Liberals - employment was way up last month (although a huge chunk of the jobs were from PC party Doug Ford's Ontario), if the number put out by StatCan is to be believed; in spite of all the other bad news for the Libs, Justin Trudeau faces such weak opponents, in terms of charisma alone, that he may still get at least a minority government from this year's federal election, I'd hazard to guess, unless scandal(s) really, really do him in by the last minute:

    Here's the wiki re: what Wikipedia calls the US-China trade war; note that in the past the POTUS Donald Trump, or members of his administration, have denied that there is actually a trade war going on:
