lmao
this is essentially a rounding error across the board
actually how is green party canada, is green/NDP -/+1 a +0?
or is that a +2
For some reason I feel like I heard they were bad but that might be wrong
 
@Unionhawk Yeah this election was a complete waste of time
Luckily we also wasted money on it too
@Unionhawk Green - 1 and NDP +1
 
@Wipqozn right but is it essentially left-ish +0?
 
The green party leader didn't even win her own seat
@Unionhawk Oh, yeah basically
 
12:30 AM
congratulations to justin trudeau for picking up one seat of 300 or whatever
 
@Unionhawk Those seats aren't even finalized yet, so he might wind up losing seats
Also the bloc is left on some things and right on others
They're probably considered centre-left
That don't even exist outside Quebec though
And the PPC are the insane far, right anti vaxxer, anti immigration party. Also white supremacy.
Who luckily still have 0 seats, but got 5% of the vote this time (they got 1% in 2019), so that's horrifying.

The Globe and Mail: Trudeau’s re-elected minority government to face demands from Bloc, NDP.
https://www.theglobeandmail.com/politics/article-trudeaus-re-elected-minority-government-to-face-demands-from-bloc-ndp/
> Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s re-elected minority government will face calls from the NDP for new taxes on the “ultra-rich” and calls from the Bloc Québécois for billions in new spending on health and seniors, after Canadian voters denied the Liberals the free rein of a majority mandate.

@Wipqozn Tax the ultra-rich for billions then spend it on healthcare and seniors. Easy solution

@Nzall I mean, the NDP would also like some form of basic income (probably guaranteed basic income to start), but the taxes probably have to come first.

Really that 5% is not worrisome to me. They are riding the wave of the conspiracy theorists that bitch on covid.

In 4 years, the crisis will be done and over with. He won't have his wave to surf on. He will look like a moron in debates. And fall back at 1-2%
 
1:58 PM
Basically in his 'best case' election hes still getting fucked in every circonscription, including his own

tl;dr individuals can't really do anything but actually vote for and force politicians to take action, since it's corporations and the rich that product most carbon emissions
aka we're fucked :)
Because we live in an insane reality where people continue to deny climate change is even a thing and would vote to fund Forest fires to "screw the libs!"
 
4:43 PM
That video is in my to watch list... but yeah. Doesn't change much trying to do stuff to be 'green' when I think the stat was that 75% of produce produced is not sold and ends up in the dumpster, for most of it
