Yep, Canadian version of 'the people's car'



Hemp based composites that are ballast in strength and lighter than metal. Engine blocks as well with carbon being used on long hauls and home charging for trips less that 100k per day. 50 year run of the same frame design so modular components from any year can be installed, the newest being the most refined version.
What would you prefer import forever and hope trade deals don't go sour or tou can have whatever car you want, it it needs any part it id a boat anchor. That is how the US fuked Cuba over so quickly, no machines you are back to walking.

Do the long term math.
If you want it to run off 'wheat straw' that can be done, we can do better than that though, keep it quiet and nobody gets extincted.

I might buy a little one for getting around town, except that noplace has the infrastructure to recharge while parked.


Four conditions. Three have already been met or exceeded and the fourth will come sooner or later as new battery tech is developed.

It sucks that even though battery science is much older than the combustion engine, the batteries continue to suck.

Now -dont you have work to do- explaining your remarkable "VISION" for how cop training should be altered???????????????????


You have certainly told us how often they mskr mistakes- IN YOUR BIGOTED OPINION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


So why not tell how to fix things?????????????????


Come on windbag- tell us how cops should have "fixed" this one:





Here is an article damning cops with faint praise and illustrating that in some peoples eyes, cops are NEVER in the right! And it illustrates the utterly twisted value system of LIE-berals! With some comments of my own in brackets):

Charleena Lyles Needed Health Care. Instead, She Was Killed. 1/11

The New York Times. By PHILLIP ATIBA GOFF and KIM SHAYO BUCHANAN

Photos of Charleena Lyles, who was killed by the police in Seattle on Sunday/June 17/2017 . © Ken Lambert/The Seattle Times, via Associated Press Photos of Charleena Lyles,

On Sunday morning, two Seattle police officers shot and killed Charleena Lyles in her apartment. She was pregnant, and three of her four children were home. She had called the police to report a burglary. According to the officers’ account, shortly after they arrived, Ms. Lyles, who the police knew was mentally ill, pulled a knife. Both officers shot her. Societal failure to care for mental health, which leaves the police as mental illness first responders, may well have been one deadly ingredient in this tragic encounter.

(ONE DEADLY INGREDIENT? IT’S THE ONLY DEADLY INGREDIENT! What would LIE-beral minded morons have ordered to be done differently by cops? She was robbed and so police MUST speak to her? It is not the job of cops to order psychiatric care for her! Nor is it in their power to ORDER her to take her medication before they will deal with her! And they have no power to do so anyway!)

According to her family and police records, Ms. Lyles wrestled with significant mental health issues. An audiotape reveals officers discussing her police and mental health history immediately before the shooting. Seattle Police Department officers had been called to her residence more than 20 times before this Sunday, with mental illness often figuring in those encounters. The department had placed an officer caution on her address for this reason, meaning officers should be on alert for dangerous behavior from her. Despite repeated previous mental health referrals and the involvement of Child Protective Services, she was alone with her children on Sunday, in distress and with nowhere to turn but 911.

(SO she is OFFICIALLY KNOWN to cops as potentially dangerous? Again- what are mere cops supposed to do with her other than to defend themselves if she attacks? AS she had already been robbed it is likely she was agitated even BEFORE cops got there. Cops might have waited a while to see if she cooled off a bit? Or maybe the deliberate lack of attention and service might have provoked her further? There is no answer and no easy solution other than to persuade LIE-beral minded Hogs that they must provide care even if the patient refuses!)


Ms. Lyles’s situation is not unique. People with untreated mental illnesses are disproportionately likely to attract police attention. The combination of mental illness, racial segregation and poverty is particularly likely to result in police contact, often leading to arrest.

(OH typical LIE-beral garbage! The woman was robbed and IS ENTITLED to police aid- its just too bad LIE-berals will do nothing for her and leave it to police with their hands tied to deal with a total mess! Too many mentally ill persons COULD be stable members of society IF they were compelled to take their medication- and IF they were supplied with it!)

(LIE-berals have created a mental health revolving door- patient acts up and cops are called and gets committed and stabilized and is then released. Once back out, patient often stops taking `meds` due to unpleasant side effects- or is unable to afford meds and ends up in mental trouble again- with cops coming back to deal with patient yet again. This is NOT a cop failing, it is a LIE-beral govt failing with LIE-berals being too greedy to waste money on crazy people!)

In fact, a 2006 Bureau of Justice Statistics study revealed that 24 percent of state prisoners report a history of mental illness, with other sources reporting rates in some larger facilities as high as 70 percent. But it was not always the case that mental illness would result in the cycle of catch and release that evidently plagued Ms. Lyles.

What changed over the past half-century is that the United States has seen a stunning decline in resources devoted to public mental health — during the same time the nation adopted mass incarceration. A 2009 International Association of Chiefs of Police review reported that the available hospital beds for persons suffering from mental illness dropped by 95 percent from 1955 to 2005, to 17 beds per 100,000 persons from 340. From 1985 to 2005, the nation’s incarceration rate tripled.

(AS I said- greedy LIE-berals are keeping the cash and giving mental health sufferers their right- to be set free without adequate supports in place! And LIE-berals consider it unfair to force mental health patients to receive treatment anyway- they can be crazy if they wanna be!)

The shift away from hospital treatment of mental illness was not matched by an offsetting commitment to fund the health care people needed to live on the outside. Medicaid reimbursement rates are so low that it is difficult to find providers who will accept it. As a result, many people with mental illness are functionally uninsured for their most urgent health care needs. That is, state support for mental health retreated at the same time state investment in incarceration exploded — and both with disastrous results for vulnerable communities.

The consequence of the disinvestment in public mental health has also not affected all vulnerable communities equally. African-American people are at least as likely as white people to experience mental health distress but are half as likely to receive mental health treatment. This helps to explain why it’s easy to recall other high-profile cases of police use of deadly force involving black victims with documented histories of mental illness.

To be sure, the disproportionate rate of law enforcement violence against African-Americans has a host of contributing factors, including racial bias, both implicit and explicit. There is most likely no single explanation for the tragedy that occurred when Seattle Police Department officers shot and killed Ms. Lyles. But in her case and others like it, the failure of public mental health services appears to have been one important ingredient in a mix of forces that ultimately proved deadly. Without this failure, Sunday’s encounter might never have occurred.

(OH balls! Race has NOTHING to do with two cops trapped in a crowded room and shooting an enraged crazy woman coming at them with a knife- it’s a survival issue!)

If we are to protect families in similar situations, we must extend the lens of our concern beyond police-community interactions — even in cases where the police pull the trigger. A reinvestment in public mental health resources — including hospitals and, yes, better health care coverage for vulnerable Americans struggling with mental illness — are urgent necessities.

Of course, the cure for these too frequent police-involved shootings must include serious changes within law enforcement. But we must also recommit to changing how we manage mental health if we are to reduce the chances that illness will be treated with gunshots. It is what we owe to Ms. Lyles and to the children who survive her.

(Oh there is the knife in the back for cops to enjoy and to make selfish LIE-berals feel better! LIE-berals insist that “better cop training’ will resolve this issue? HAHAHAHAHA! LIE-berals should STOP lying about cop training and START thinking about giving more cops things like Tazers so they can knock down a crazy person without filling them full of .40mm Glock pistol holes! But here in Toronto, our LIE-berals refuse to give out Tazers to cops for fear cops will “misuse them”!) So Toronto cops- and a lot of Yankee ones too- can only pull out the Glock and blaze away to protect themselves! LIE-berals are desperately seeking a way to blame others for THEIR racist attitudes and lust for power! LIE-berals are afraid to tell the public the truth for fear of being voted out!)

Poor retired soldier- he cannot face the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That Gm makes inferior cars and trucks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Nor does he wish to recognize that cars are lasting much longer than they used to- at the same time that automation spews out new car products faster and cheaper!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


GM is simply on the wrong side of the business model- in a market that is over supplied- somebody has to take the hit and cut production!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



But that answer is too simple for our soldier - who wants an explanation that will discredit Conservatives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And of course letting POLITICIANS MEDDLE in business is why we have so much corporate welfare to begin with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


The solutions offered up to "save Gm" are the reasons GM is dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Any company that spends more time chasing govt grants than it does modernizing and refining its product IS ALREADY IN TROUBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And Bombardier is going to be the next STAR of the Cdn bankruptcy stakes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Or we could look at Samsung and the mouldy green energy deals signed with LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Samsung and other investors NEVER DID FULFILL their commitments in the deals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Not enough investments and not enough people hired- and the govt grant giving and LIE-beral sponsorship of the mouldy green industry were so GROSS that now Ontari-owe LIE-berals are in disgrace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ontari-owe has 40 percent of the entire Cdn population- which is to say that AT LEAST 40- percent of all Cdns are profoundly DISGUSTED with LIE-beral style mouldy green energy plans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


LIE-beral govt grants to Biz should be recognized for what they are- a POISON PILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, given that lithium ion batteries did not exist until about 20 years ago that stands as a significant breakthrough. Lithium ion batteries have made all sorts of new tech possible, the most obvious being cell phones, but the tech is not stopping there. Multiple researchers are working new battery tech that will eventually replace current lithium ion tech.


I don't expect you to read all of the articles below; there are a lot of them, but a quick glance will reveal that current battery tech is not the end of the road.

Poor stupid Kreskin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


He has no magic trick to explain why GM is dead!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Kreskin just does the angry white men knee jerk dance to explain all the ills of the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Here is a little history of the problems some auto makers have faced:



The writer whining about the `death of Detroit` must be an unemployed auto worker who does not realize Detroit died because they made shitty cars!



Consider the 1965 Ford Falcon……now it DID have good qualities-nice front seat leg room, a solid frame that gave (for those days when seat belts were not available as an option and crash tests were rudimentary) good protection in a crash, had a solid reliable straight 6 cylinder engine and a good sized trunk……BUT…..it was DESIGNED as Fords version of an economy car! As such it was about 40% HEAVIER than a Honda civic or Toyota Corolla and that straight 6 engine was hooked to a two speed automatic transmission (no standard transmission available) so its gas consumption was easily twice that of the competition! Add in a considerably higher purchase price……and Ford eventually moved on to other economy cars like the Pinto (great car but if it got hit from behind the gas tank would rupture and FRY you) and the Maverick-another great car but MUCH higher price and gas consumption than foreign built economy cars…..and Ford sold the Falcon molds and dies etc to their Australian division and the Falcon was produced down under for some years.


Now….too get the FULL PICTURE of how unsuitable the Falcon was as an economy car (in spite of various other virtues it DID have) it was reported in the Toronto Star Wheels section that the car driven by MAD MAX in the movie Road Warrior was a somewhat modified Australian Ford Falcon…….good car…..but….to have that last of the “road ripping V-8 interceptors” as they called it in the movie- compete in economy against a Civic or Corolla? HAHAHAHAHAHA!



Or consider American Motors Corporation-3 companies blended together after Second World War-Hudson Motors, Willies Overland(the Jeep designers) and Studebaker was (I think) the third company. The straight 6 cylinder engines they made were bullet proof…..but the wiring for their Jeeps, Hornets and Gremlins was a nightmare-pieces snatched from whatever was leftover from any other source-if it was built on Tuesday it will have MOPAR solenoid and Ford alternator, Wednesday had GM solenoid and mystery alternator-if it has three prongs then hook it here, if four prongs then hook it there, unless it was built on Friday in which case start all over with all new wire contacts…..and the wiring had so many dis-similar metals (with galvanic action EATING connections) and such corrosion problems that it was common to REWIRE the entire car after a few years on the road as my father in law did with his AMC Hornet! The Hornet went over 200,000 miles at a time when a car with 100,000 miles on it was toast- those old AMC 6 cylinders did NOT QUIT……but the wiring was madness…..so AMC closed its factory on the south side of Danforth Ave west of Victoria Park (it’s a mall and Cdn Tire now…….and sold the Jeep design to Chrysler-the death of Detroit was nothing to do with taxes and EVERYTHING to do with weak designs and HIGH costs…..


As for General Motors- their pickup truck customers formed a “Slipping Transmission Club” in a hopeless effort to get GM to remedy transmission problems!


Gm responded to the transmission problem by resolving some of the issues- but consumer reports suggest that Chevy Silverado continues to have issues!


And GM came out with their Vortec engine which is alleged to have oil circulation and lubrication issues! Apparently some spots around the valves can run dry resulting in micro sized areas of over heating- the engine registers as running at normal temperature- but in fact some small spots and parts are over heated- resulting in strain on the head gaskets and eventual failure of the engine- and the need for a COSTLY REPLACEMENT!



GM is suffering because it does not make cars that the public wants! In Europe- where GM also operates- the most popular cars sold there have 1.5 litre diesel engines and the smallest engine GM makes is a 2.5 litre gasoline engine!


GM suffers in Asia as well! In Japan a car buyer MUST PROVE he has a place to park the machine BEFORE TAKING DELIVERY! Gm cars are simply to BIG and fuel hungry to satisfy an Asian!


Gm is dead for the same reason that Mastadons are dead- because they FAILED TO ADAPT!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gm is losing out in every market that it operates in!!!!!!!!!!

CLUELESS TWIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


CLEARLY MHz has never actually wrestled with a two stroke engine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


He is ignorant of WHY virtually ALL the outboard motors on Cdn lakes are now 4 strokes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


And he is equally ignorant of how all snow mobiles and ATV`s are also now 4 stroke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Worst of all- he is utterly ignorant of how a HYBRID car carries the WORST of both worlds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You have a gas motor- with attendant need for regular maintenance and refueling at a gas station!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


AND you have the awkward recharging of an electric Toy car battery as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


It is NOT fuel efficient to leave the car with gas engine idling in your driveway to recharge the battery- after all- there ARE LIE-beral LAWS prohibiting a driver to leave a car idling for more than 3 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Tell me MHz- do you EVER READ your own posts to see if they make coherent sense to anybody except YOU?????????????????


I am going to guess that NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You just blurt out whatever anti white, anti capitalist, pro Muslim, and pro LIE-beral crap that comes to your mind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


You are a classic illustration of the assertion by Peter C. Newman: "that LIE-berals no longer have any plan, nor any real goals, nor any core values either"!


Newman asserts that our modern LIE-berals are animated ONLY by a lust for power and the conviction they were born to rule!!!!!!!!!!!


Modern LIE-berals are in such a mess that even older, retired LIE-berals such as former federal LIE- beral finance minister John Manley are throwing warnings at Our idiot Boy Justin and his loser LIE-berals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
