So basically...get rid of a selective majority of a given place and the rest is ______. Who'd have thought?And the other kind: right-wing.
I'll address what I quoted above. Yes, I was selective:
subtract Québec, Newfoundland, Cape Breton, and the urban areas of Southern Ontario, Vancouver, Victoria, Halifax, and you have a very right wing country.But my point stands: Canada is progressive in urban areas, or Francophone areas. The remainder is intolerant: with but few exceptions. Conservatism in Canada, as Republicanism in the States, is based on hate: hate on 'queers', immigrants, the poor, etc. Voting to the left is not. It is not even worse for the economy, or public debt: 'conservative' governments have done their own fine job of driving up public debt and crashing economies. There is no party for a 'fiscal conservative' to vote for! Look at the record. There is one for 'social conservatives'.
