Canadian Politics


This is where we get down to business and talk about Canadian Politics. As with all discussions, we'd like to remind you to keep it clean and completely refrain from making any personal attacks against any participant in debates and discussions. Anything political and Canadian belongs here. International matters can be discussion in the International Politics forum. We discuss national politics and Canada's place in the world.
