"A majority of respondents (55%) are opposed to Gerrard’s proposal to expand the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba by four seats, to be filled exclusively by an aboriginal vote. The idea is less popular in rural Manitoba (58%) than in Winnipeg (52%)."


uhh.. NO! Talk about the most racist thing someone could say.

Why do we call them fingers if no one has ever seen them fing?

I do not believe there should be any special political (or other) privileges for a people. Ever.

Yes, I really am that Grumpy...

It's their, they're and there; in Canada it's colour, cheque, rumour and zed...

I wonder how that would work?

Natives get to vote twice and have in effect twice as much voting power as anyone else? Once for their local area candidate and once for the Native candidate? Or would you have to choose? Or would they perhaps be FORCED to only get to vote for the Native one? Or maybe each race that has 10+% of the population gets four candidates? How do we get to choose who votes where? My wife is German and Metis Background.. would she get to vote three times?

Once for local candidate?
Once for German Candidate?
Once for Native Candidate?

Why do we call them fingers if no one has ever seen them fing?


Gerrard is so far behind in the polls, he's become desperate with this bullshit...he's just pandering to the native vote.

Pathetic imo.


I wonder if we could be headed for minority NDP government.

Currently, 57 seats...
36 NDP
19 PC
2 Liberal

Minority gov't (I'd be surprised to see the Liberals win more than 1 seat)
1 Liberal

Smallest majority (if the Liberals & Greens get shut out)

“Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through
our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that
democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'
