There is already a Hell-on-Earth:
>  "I came across two gut wrenching stories of corrective rape — one, where a gay girl was raped by her cousin so that she could be ‘cured’ of homosexuality,” Tadanki recalled. “And another, where family members forced a gay boy to have sex with his mother, in a bid to turn him ‘straight.'”<

Mulroney's Conservative Party was destroyed in the election after he slipped in NAFTA while Canada was looking at the Quebec Separatist Crisis he manufactured. Now PM Stephen Harper wants to give away more of Canada while he distracts us with trumped-up stories of Islamist Terrorism. Get rid of this bunch of Conservatives before they do another number on us.
There are signs that some countries are trying to get governing power back from transnational corporations. But no country seems as determined as Canada to jettison the powers of government.

People who decide that are sadly the corporations.

> "If, instead of being bored by news of another ho-hum 'trade deal,' Canadians were told that a panel of three international trade lawyers would be reviewing all new laws and determining, in secret, which ones passed muster by meeting with the approval of their giant corporate clients, would they react differently?"<

A huge victory of corporations over people. Our reptilian overlords are these corporations.

Canada's lawyers and judges oppose Bill C-51. Maybe they know the Law better than the Harper Government?
As organizers prepare for a day of nation-wide demonstrations against Bill C-51 on Saturday, the Canadian Bar Association (CBA) urged Canadians to march in protest against the legislation. The CBA is a national professional organization representing all Canadian lawyers.

> Animals have been interbreeding for millennia. Even modern humans are the product of genetic exchange with Neanderthals some 60,000 years ago.<
Call it the grolar bear dilemma: are hybrids caused by climate change bad for species?

Hybridization is a technique evolution uses to develop species. The Cro Magnons from Africa interbred with the Neanderthals to obtain traits already developed for the colder environment.

We have to realize/remember that species is  an arbitrary thing.

The American Military can cross the border into Canada to squash anti-pipeline demonstrations, or even actions taken by First Nations on their own land. Thanks, Harper.

> In recent years, B.C. has been selling off the Canadian Entitlement to the tune of $100 to $300 million annually. From 2010 to 2012, the province recieved about $30 per megawatt-hour for that power. Meantime, the cost of power from the Site C dam is estimated at $83 per megawatt-hour.
> “On the face of it, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to be building new sources at $83 (per megawatt hour) and continuing to export at $25 or $30 or $40 per megawatt hour,” said Philip Raphals, an energy analyst hired by the Treaty 8 Tribal Association to provide expert testimony during the Site C hearings. “Why not just use our own inexpensive resources instead of selling them off for so little?”<

The Harper Government provides Market solutions to places where there is no market. facepalm
> The fund was created with fanfare by the Harper government in 2008 as a bold new way to help solve the severe housing crisis on First Nations reserves, where populations are booming. The money would be used to backstop bank mortgage loans, allowing eligible applicants to build and own their own dwellings — and someday sell their houses in a thriving housing market.
> Many First Nations reserves are remote, rather than near urban centres where housing markets already function, so homeowners on reserves have few assurances they could recoup their investment when it's time to sell.
> Mortgages also require a credit history and a steady income, neither of which may be available to residents of reserves, some of whom already pay little or nothing for their existing subsidized housing provided by the band council.<
Market forces were supposed to help First Nations resolve their housing crises when the Harper government created a special $300-million mortgage-support fund in 2008. Six years later, the fund's aggressive target of 25,000 new homes looks highly unrealistic, with just 99 homes built to date.

CBS sinks reality TV to new depths. Shows just what society does to manipulate people. The tricks the broadcaster goes through are the same ones played every day on every formerly Middle Class person. Now we can see the pain and stress these pressures cause people. But if you get pleasure from watching it, you are a psychopath.

This is disgusting indeed.  If they could, I'm sure they would love a reality show where the losers get eaten by the winners, so being "voted off" involves one's death. The psychopaths would love it.
