I can't imagine starting out as a first time home buyer now

Maybe the "Minister of Middle Class Prosperity" will save them. Looks like he is laughing at their situation behind the mask

All I think about when I see this stuff is when Kanye said "George Bush does not care about Black people."

Only... The Canadian version is:

"The Canadian Government does not care about young people."

You should be the governor of BofC.

Pelosi’s husband bought Google, Disney call options that would pay off if bull market continues

Pelosi, owner and operator of a San Francisco–based real estate and venture capital investment and consulting firm, purchased between $500,000 and $1 million in call options in Alphabet stock with a strike price of $2,000 and an expiration date of Sept. 16, 2022, about 30% below the closing price of the stock on Dec. 17, 2021, the day of the transaction, according to FactSet. He bought between $250,000 and $500,000 in call options in Micron shares with a strike price of $50 and an identical expiration date, about 45% below the closing price on Dec. 21, the day of the transaction.

The speaker’s husband also bought between $600,000 and $1.25 million in call options in Salesforce with a strike price of $210 and an expiration date of Jan. 20, 2023, about 15% below the stock’s closing price of $247.21 on the day of the transaction, Dec. 20. He bought between $100,000 and $250,000 in call options in Walt Disney shares with a strike price of $130 and an expiration date of Sept. 16, 2022, roughly 13% below the stock’s closing price of $148.76 on the day of the transaction, Dec. 17.

"The Canadian Government does not care about young people."
Trudeau only cares about votes, he doesn't care about people, or fairness.
As long as Canadians keep pushing for bad policy, we'll end up with bad policy and bad results.

Young people today are pushing for more bad policy, they've got to smarten up and push for better policies if they want things to get better.
Really there only a few legitimate concerns are

1. The cost of housing, which is simply politicians listening to NIMBY protestors.
People want to build housing, the governments keep blocking development, and putting in obstacles to investment.
2. Institutional racism and discrimination in the name of "equity". The young people today are totally for racism and discrimination. They refuse to even accept that it's racist to treat people differently because of the colour of their skin.

This blows my mind.

I work with young people and they vote NDP. All of them. You know what they call me? Hitler.

They think that voting NDP will somehow benefit them because they get free handouts.

I actually don't understand anything in the world anymore. The only thing that is true and certain is that everyone and everything is effed. =)

Well yeah, they're voting for bad policy.
Maybe they'll smarten up with age. The old saying is that as you get older you become more conservative.
I think it's just that as you gain experience, perspective and context, you realize things are a bit more complicated than you initially thought.

It's almost humorous how they display their ignorance by calling everyone a Nazi, it just goes to show how ignorant they really are.

I've never been anything but conservative or right.
But definitely the older I get, the more right wing I become.

I voted PPC.

Simply because even the CPC is now a left wing party. Was it a wasted vote? Sure. And I knew that beforehand.

But drastic times call for drastic measures. "settling" is never a solution.

The last time things were this pathetic the Reform Party became a reality & a few years later the Liberals got the boot. Looks like it will have to happen again...I'll be supporting Max, as The Toole has been pretty much complicit with Junior & Marge Simpson in the current gutting of Canada. They should all be ashamed.

PPC isn't very "right wing", they're just not a bunch of racist authoritarians, or the CPC pandering for the socialist vote.
