    Just a note: This is the sheer reality of our country right now. We in the West are incredibly frustrated by several policies that our ruining both our provincial economy and culture. It is quite off-putting for an American to suggest they know the ins and outs of regional politics in one of the most diverse countries in the world. Plus, Trudeau is an intellectual? Trudeau's father was an intellectual. His son couldn't carry the father's satchel, let alone come even close to any intellect. That said, not a huge fan of idiot hecklers who do not represent the true legitimate anger in the best light.

    So you elected Donald Trump? I don't blame the guy for being mad, Justin Trudeau has a history of doing black face and worse. I'm not against taboo or boundary breaking comedy but Justin is a full force hypocrite when it comes to his values. In all seriousness I don't know many Comedians that can balance politics and humor now a days. You have to be really creative, if you can't then you come off as preachy and condescending. I miss the good days of Comedy, Joan Rivers, Richard Pryor, George Carlin and the other that weren't afraid to go against the grain. Today they'd be called Nazis and ostracized by their fellow comedians. Comedy is an art that is under attack and it's a shame to see it being muddied every where I go.

  • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
    Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

    "You voted for someone else. Did that person get more votes than Trudeau?" Yes Steve. He did. Trudeau didn't win the popular vote. Nor did he win the majority of the country. Our election is not for the Prime Minister. No one voted for Trudeau to be Prime Minister. He was appointed. He was the leader of the Liberal party, who got the most seats. 36% of our Parliament comes from that 1 of 10 provinces. That's more than BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba combined. Our elections are not based on equal representation of the country. They are based on the population of Toronto, and thus Toronto determining the fate of the nation.

  • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
    Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

    They weren't confused about what you meant Steve. It's honestly really hard for people to understand the frustration out here with Trudeau and the Liberal Party. Canada's election system rides on one city: Toronto. Trudeau won the re-election by taking Toronto. That's it. He had support in the maritimes, and Toronto. Trudeau has repeatedly thrown us under the bus, and outright refused to listen to us, while calling us racists and "tax cheats"....while ignoring us altogether when addressing the entire nation. Imagine living in a political system where you have absolutely no say in any elections, ever. That's us. Our votes do not count. At all. We are ignored. 200,000 people are out of jobs because of Trudeau's "mistakes"....and the only response he has is to refuse to give us a voice in how we live our own lives, and force us to live under the legislation that serves Ontario and Quebec....off of our dime. We pay for the services in those provinces with our taxes. And we get nothing in return, except our economy choked out, and our local businesses shut down. Trudeau is more hated out here than Donald Trump is in the states. Imagine the response you'd get going into Berkeley and praising him.

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      ...and now add to it the news that the longest running oil company in Canada, Encana, just packed up and moved to the US, leaving our tax revenue even more depleted as a nation, and hurting our province even harder...and all Trudeau did was shrug. Shows how much he really cares about us out here.

    • Da'at Choshek
      Da'at Choshek

      Trudeau is also now known Globally for doing Blackface as if it was his hobby. Steve wasn't always "political" but he's gone a lil' too far in that direction, I hope he remains true to the comedians that inspired him.

    How voting works in Canada: If you can convince *25%* of eligible voters, properly distributed across the country, to vote for you(r party), you are likely to be rewarded with (nearly) absolute legislative and executive authority. Thanks, Trudeau! /s

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      Nope. You are incorrect. How voting works in Canada: If you convince a majority of people in Toronto to vote for you, the rest of Canada can go fuck themselves, because Ontario holds 35% of the House of Commons seats, with the majority representing the GTA. And that's how Trudeau got elected. Nearly all provinces except the maritimes voted CPC or NDP (Bloc Quebecois in Quebec). Even Ontario was mostly blue...except one dot in the midst of a sea of blue: Toronto.

  • thebookgeek

    To be fair, I think the anger towards Trudeau really stems from how terrible his time in office his been for albertans. Obviously I don’t agree with what this guy is saying or doing, but considering how much of alberta’s economy is in oil, trudeau’s policies don’t work too great for them. Obviously we’ll have to see how the next four years go.

    Canada’s population is so spread out that there’s a lot of regional alienation. Out here in BC we feel like the rest of the country has forgotten about us, even though we have the third-largest city. I don’t think we’d want to secede with Alberta though. Culturally we’re more like Washington State. There was talk (just idle talk, not serious) many years ago about the idea of BC, Washington, and Oregon seceding and forming “Pacifica.”

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      Same here in Alberta. I'm originally from Saskatchewan, and it's the same there. Same for Manitoba. Same for northern Ontario. Same for Quebec. In fact...it's really the same for everyone outside of Toronto. They are the main factor in our elections and governance. And it's really sad that people think telling others to shut the fuck up and take it is going to unite Canada under Toronto's rule....somehow. The west has always been undermined. It's not a surprise that a Prime Minister intent on bringing down our economies is going to be passionately hated.

    2:51 Weirdly enough, Scheer did get slightly more votes than Trudeau (it was like 34% to 33%) but Trudeau got more seats, so for once the “electoral college” thing (or our Canadian equivalent) actually worked in our favour

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      Weirder, Scheer had more votes across the nation too. Trudeau won because he took Toronto. Our "elector college thing" here is why so many Canadians are pissed. Don't get me wrong, this guy was being an ass...but there is a reason so many westerners are frustrated. The same reason Quebec unanimously voted for the separtist party, the Bloc Quebecois. Western Canada has had no voice since confederation. The Harper government at least made efforts to give independence to provinces, particularly Quebec. Trudeau trying to nationalize everything again is taking away our independence. Toronto doesn't know what's best for Edmonton, no matter how much they think they do. They shouldn't decide our fate. Period. Imagine if Vancouver got to determine everything about your governance...and they undermined your economy, your businesses, and shipped your taxes to services there. How would you feel? How would you feel knowing that there was nothing you could do, because none of your votes count anyway?

    OMG Trudeau has fucked up Canada so much it's not even funny. I had some family members that moved to Canada 20 years ago. And they had to move closer to the United States border because the healthcare system is so fucked up. People are dying waiting to see a doctor and when you do see a doctor they're not that great. They said they don't know anybody that doesn't come into the United States when they have a serious health problem. But I guess what do you expect when you have free healthcare. Yay everybody has Health Care, shity terrible Healthcare.

    I will never understand why the topic of politics escalates to yelling so quickly. Why can't people just exchange arguments, let the other one finish, think about their point of view and reply in a respectful manner? From my personal experience, yelling at someone or calling him stupid will not change his opinion. But listening, repeating his view, understanding him (which is diferent to "agreeing"!) and then calmly showing his an alternative argument, that he probably hasn't seen before, these things MIGHT change his opinion.

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      People out here are pissed right now. And rightfully so. Our political system in Canada gives 0 say to the west. We literally have no say in our governance. We elect memebers of parliament to represent us in our ridings. 36% of those ridings are in the province of Ontario alone. Of them, nearly all are the Toronto area. Almost all of Canada voted against Trudeau in this last election, except the maritimes and Toronto. And understanding how our system affects us is important too. We pay equalization payments to the federal government, who then divvy them up between the provinces. Those who produce a shortfall in government spending, get back more. As Quebec and Ontario spend the most on social services, they take more. We get nothing back from what we give. In other words, our tax dollars are going to pay for services in Ontario and Quebec, so they can fund them....while the federal government uses tax dollars to subsidize their companies to help their economy, and chokes out ours. Trudeau claimed the whole SNC Lavalin scandal was to protect 9000 jobs in Quebec (And even that was a lie. It was to protect the votes. The jobs wouldn't have gone away, they just would have left the company in Trudeau's riding)...yet some 200,000 people are unemployed in Alberta due to his policies. And still we are expected to pay for their services, with no means of standing up for ourselves. If 100% of western Canada voted for the conservatives (which nearly happened, save half of BC and Manitoba), we still would have Trudeau as our PM. The PM can get elected with less than half the votes of the opposition party. That's how flawed our system is, and how much it undermines the majority of the country. Don't get me wrong, this guy has no right to take out his frustration on a comedian...who probably also shouldn't have taken his out on him. But it's understandable why he is so upset.

    It's a funny clip and I enjoyed it. So you know, Canadians never vote for a Prime Minister. What follows is a quick education about Canadian politics. It might be useful to you for future material. Then again, it may be just a boring political read. Unlike the U.S., the position of Prime Minister is absent from our constitution. Prime Minister is simply a position filled by the leader of the party that wins a majority of the seats in parliament. The leader of the party winning a majority of the seats in parliament is invited to form a government by the Governor General. Technically, that party could choose any member to Prime Minister. It's unlikely any party will win a majority of seats in parliament in the 2019 election. In this case, the Liberals are given an opportunity to form a coalition government because they were the last party to hold a majority of seats. It's kind of boring, I know, but Canadians never vote for a Prime Minister. We only vote for our local Member of Parliament. The party that forms a government is chosen based on winning a majority of seats in parliament or by being the last party to have held a majority of seats. The leader of the party usually becomes the Prime Minister, but there is no legal requirement for that to happen. Please accept my apology if this turned out to be a boring political read.

      @Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren? what's the big issue?

    • Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?
      Dost Thou Even Logic Brethren?

      Yes. The West has been pissed for years. The slogan used to be "We want in", as in we want representation in Ottawa. Since Trudeau has undermined us more, it's changed to "We want out". National unity has never been this low since 1980, when his father was in. And that says a lot, given Quebec took it to a vote to separate in 1994.
