By that time I will likely be floating on a fluffy white cloud, so it will be up to you people to verify isaidso's prediction!

That pipeline to Saint John can't come soon enough. They're not even #1 in New Brunswick any more.
It is sad indeed; Saint John and Halifax could be akin to Boston!!!

At least Halifax seems to be growing again. Saint John has been flat lining for a long time. Perhaps they're re-surface as 2 of our biggest cities 2 centuries from now.

They always come off as authoritarian rather than proponents of civil liberty.
Conservatism is based on principals, not just do-what-thou-wilt, freedom for its own sake. Right wing and conservatism isn't necessarily the same thing. Libertarian types (quite far right), do support legalization of drugs.

I know this was a response to an old post, but the thread is still active so I figure its still appropriate.

Ottawa is growing faster then expected plus Gatineau is expected to be the second fastest city in Quebec.
