They'll have no trouble forming the Victoria protest. The "usual suspects" will show up .... rant and rave .... cause traffic disruption ..... look for reporters so that they can be enraged on TV ..... make a big mess that they won't clean up ...... and go away thinking that they accomplished something. Of course the local left wing media will show up and exaggerate the crowd size. show more show less


18 likes?



That's right, most will be too eager to get to the Blethering Place for Tea, and these are certainly not Tea Partiers. show more show less





The criminals were the politicians, who not only created the sub-prime mortgage market, but mandated it by force of law. It had its beginnings in the community reinvestment act under Cater. It was Marxist groups like this, who were protesting, threatening bank mangers in their homes, and suing them in court that led to the community reinvestment act. The lending institutions wanted nothing to do with it. When they were forced into it, they did what they could to protect the integrity of the system by spreading the risk, but it was eventually overwhelmed. If they had done nothing, and maybe they should have done nothing, it would have collapsed years before it did. show more show less




And what are they even protesting? Is it another vague fight against the financial sector and its greed? If so, perhaps they should know that the Arab Spring happened people wanted more economic freedom and to stop the Middle-Eastern dictatorships from further screwing the economy. No doubt these Western hipsters protesting right now want more government intervention, ignorant of their own countries scenario or what it really takes to get the economy moving again.






truewest Why aren't they out creating jobs?




What a crock!!! A gang of illiterate, non-consequential, idiotic, substandard goons who want to destroy that upon which their ability to undertake such nonsensical idiocy is based are attempting to force others to think in their low-brow ways. They are unable to sway people with logic and debate. Therefore, like all good socialist/communists, they riot and scream trying to defeat reason with gang violence. They should all be arrested and condemned to life in the remotest part of never-never-land where they came from and belong




I wish I was bankrolled by my parents so I could waste a week whining and doing nothing productive.





Oh boy, angry protesters. At least they self identify as failures in life, people who are not and will not be successful so they head to the streets to "protest" that the successful people are sacrificing more of their money to the mob. Winter is coming, these are fair weather protesters. No worries








Don't these people have jobs. And, if they don't then wouldn't their time be better spent looking for one? Finally, what impact do these protestors expect their sit in to have?



I am not sure how will the protests work out in Canada, and here in Toronto, but juding by the comments alot of other are pretty much Ignorant on what has happening around the global and who controls the stocks, Toronto has a also a poverty problem, alot of homeless who are on the streets, are usual taken by the police and never seen again, well some other homeless find and decide to live in a ruined abandoned building.


Well i am not surprised about the comments made by the posters on the nationalpost, the nationalpost has always been right wing,i was surprised though by how many people or some of the people are still sheeps

Honestly, Canada scares me. You never read or hear anything about Canada, almost like it's invisible. Why is that? Is the news out of Canada generally stuffed away so that the rest of the world won't know you all exist?

To hear that you have homeless people and poverty is pretty shocking to me!

Well CTV may not have been biased, but thats the NATIONAL POST, conservative rag. Its very very slanted.
I didin't realize you were quoting national post. So they interviewed Bill Bennet and Harper class people. Not the average joe by any means.

The national post is not a authority on the demographics of the average citizen in Canada. I never read that conservative think tank heartless crapola.

Just a note on the paid-to-posters - they are alive and well and in full force.
I can look for the links for the want ads from the conservative, or right wing, gov't.

Any time at all you see the mainstream media referred to as left wing, you can bet the stock (or whats left of it) it is a paid-to-be-there poster.

We have a radio r.wing nutbar who thinks he's king of the world. He labels the MSM as left wing.
His self-admitted hero is rush pop-me-sum-pills limbaugh. Laughably, this Titanic-ridden radio nutbar has tailored his voice to sound similar to rush's.

The only MSM that used to give the real deal was the CBC.
Old r.winger harper has cut them back horrendously, I'm sure partly because of it.

We used to offer decent support for artists to broadcast their work.
Provincial public tv stations have been and are being sold out to private interests, with harper at the unofficial helm.

Please excuse the lack of links at the moment, I will hunt them very soon.

The broadcaster who purchased our station is part of the media group labeled "fox news north", or "faux news north". They purchased it for a pittance.

I swear I saw their call letters in an ats ad yesterday. I don't wish to give them any "publicity", is why I'm not listing any names.

Yes, we have sadly plenty of homeless people all throughout the country.
Some do tend to migrate to the warmer winters of the West Coast.

And the governments at all levels have been treating them like complete sh#ite.

I am thanking the Universe for karma, although I wish it would hurry up!

Will post links to the broadcaster re: paid trolls and the faux news broadcaster.

As a canadian it was shocking of you to find a homeless man..I hope your being sarcastic. They are everywhere and are the piss of society. Perhaps if they got off of their lazy asses and worked, instead of panhandling 2 hours a day for booze and drugs society as a whole would be better off.

That's just plain ugly. Let me tell ya, I lost the last job I had for about $18.00 an hour because my position was moved to Canada. I was sold out because wages for people there doing the same job were less than here in the US.

Get over the fact that the situation of the entire world is now hitting your lovely little land of invisibility. You might be in line begging in front of Wal-Mart yourself one day.

Do you think people like begging, to get money for whatever nasty comments you made here? Perhaps one of their kids needs formula or diapers.

Grow up, and grow some compassion and empathy along with it!

Canada is not that much different from the US. We have homeless people, lach of jobs in some sectors, Wal-Mart. All the crap you have we have too. And to have a puppet like Harper in office doesn't help either. Forget what the Harper lap dogs said in that other post. It dosen't reflect how the general population of Canada thinks. We are waking up just like the rest of the world. So please, don't judge from what you read in the Post, thanks.

Socialist policies don’t work!! The fact that the average citizen in Canada is complaining about social conditions is ridiculous. You got into this situation by demanding wealth redistribution. You have to EARN YOUR OWN LIVING. SOCIALISM DOESN’T WORK!!

Canada has created one of the biggest social safety nets on the world. Like America, your welfare system has been defrauded by its citizens and immigrants from other countries. The inefficiency of the Canadian government has resulted in the outrageous waiting list for social services and the huge gap between rich and poor. The top marginal tax rate in Canada starts at only $65,000 (compared to $285,000 currently in US). Because of Canada’s ridiculous social spending and social engineering, the NYPD has more man power and resources than the Canadian military. Canada would rather spend its resources pandering to the masses with welfare programs than defending itself from take over! Look where it’s gotten you! People are worse off now than ever!!

The rich in Canada are geniuses because I can’t see any way to make a dime in Canada. It’s not the RICH…it’s the social hand-outs that are killing your economy!!

There are between 200,000 - 300,000 homeless people in canada.
1.7million people are unemployed/underemployed. Average wages have fell. Jobs are not being created. Any job creations in the last 3 years have not been gains, because it's merely recapturing the 328,000 jobs that were lost in 2008.

I have a huge rant on it, and it wont even fit in one ATS post. I'll need to paste it here in 3 goes. Lots of swearing in it too.

100 of canada's richest people also netted 1.7 billion more into their pockets. Each.

56% of those homeless people are only homeless because they can't find a job to pay rent to have a warm place to live. Under 8% are actually crazy. All in between a myriad of problems. Drugs. etc.

Hi. I'm a Canadian retiree and I have 2 adult sons who are married and work hard every day. This old fart wasn't hoodwinked, but I really blame the 20-40 yr old crowd for being too apathetic to vote again.

I didn't vote for Harper and no-one in my family did either. The ones that did pretty much live west of me.

Did YOU vote?

Personally, I think that people who pidgeonhole other people for silly things like their age or hair colour are a bigger problem than anyone else, including politicians I don't particularly want in power.

When a 50 year old in Canada can still out work a 30 year old immigrant with 5 kids from 2 different women and they cannot support them and the mothers , god help us all . They are so quick to get rid of the experienced help for the cheaper waged is just another list of sad days the future holds . Pampered baby boomers in power that still have the silver spoon in their mouths .

Yes i did vote for the NDP since i didnt have a choice of either those two other parties nor did i vote for Harper masqua just who voted Harper in ? i know the toronto area where i live they all voted for the NDP and hoesntly i feel as if my vote was thrown away into the trash after the election
how can they call Harper the winner in a single night? shouldnt the process take a day or a week even?

Thats why i wont be voting again, nor do i plan on voting for the ontario election coming on thursday.

Some people do have good lives. And thats okay. Good for you for working hard to where you have gotten yourself.
I hope to be at that some day as well.

But its not about any one person anymore.

Its the fact that there are 200k - 300k homeless people, 56% of which just can't find a job to pay for their rent.
1.7 million canadians have "housing payment" issues, they barely make it.
7.4% of the population is unemployed or underemployed.

Yet we give huge business tax breaks? FOR WHAT? What about the price of gas here? The oil companies are making more money off us than ever. Some people can't afford to HEAT their homes.

This is for an increase in the standard of living for EVERYONE. We are all in the same boat. The resources are there for everyone to be fed, to have a home, and to have clean water at the very least. The distribution of wealth is screwed in canada. The US is worse, but we're on our way there too.
