Hey he might get the Liberals back into power by name recognition alone!

His legacy still has a lot charisma over the population. He might the be the push that the liberals needed to get back on top.

Like I said before, I'm sure Justin Trudeau's a good guy, but he wouldn't be anywhere right now if it weren't for his name recognition. Granted, that alone should get some of the Liberal support back.

Let's just hope that if he ever does come into power, he's more competent than George W. Bush (I fully expect that he is), who also got recognized thanks to his father's terms as President.

I'm pretty sure Justin Trudeau could be a 100 times better leader than George Bush could ever be.

How does he always get dragged into things? It's been five years already. And a different country. This is the Canada club!

Anyway, what's everyone's weather reports today? XD

Not that I have any real pull here, but I don't recall the Canadian Club being a political thread before. Don't think we want to go down that road, BlahISuck.

Snow's gone, and the three food items before that are unhealthy. What are your plans for the summer now that exam season is halfway through and the school year is almost done?

    Spoiler'd because the video may or may not be inappropriate... It's poking fun at Harper, though.

    Spoiler:
    lol wth is that XD and we are better /kidding, but they probably took it out of context... Maybe he was talking about better at saving money, or better at paying bills, or better at organization; who knows?

    I has a funny vid, though.



    loolololololol there has to be subtitles on this, it's way too funny XD

    I'll translate some of it (he's trying to say "elections," but he keeps pronouncing the "l" as an "r" lol)

    "Are you tired of having continuous e#ections?"
    "A fifth e#ection before the fourth e#ection is even finished!"
    "To release a useless e#ection... An e#ection that costs hundreds of millions of dollars!"
    "We're releasing useless e#ections on the backs of our regions!"


    Anyway, BACON.

    And finally the snow is all gone! (for those who read my last week's blog about the winter storm...)

    Enjoyed a nice spring walk today, too. It was 10C outside.

    I couldn't stop laughing through the whole video XDDDD Puts my bad accent in perspective though, is it embarassing to Quebeckers when people butcher French?

      Nan, we actually like it when people at least attempt French; however, we don't like Harper. Quebec, other than the City of Quebec, is typically NDP/Liberal/La Bloque, so these kinds of compilations ridiculing him is awesome.

      I have a lot of anglophones (I'm anglophone myself, but apparently have an Acadian / New Brunswick accent) come by my register who "butcher" it / make it really obvious it's their second language, but I smile and continue jabbering on, and they get everything I say and I literally giv'em a thumbs up every time.

      It's a nice thing. I find it considerate.

      It's 13°C right now, feeling the good spring season here in Montreal

      And don't forget it's not only quebecers that speaks french, lol. We find it rather funny when someone tries to speak french but can't. Vice-versa for people trying to talk in English too. Especially when it's politic leaders that can't speak french/english properly. I mean, they seriously became leader and can't speak fluenty the two most spoken language in Canada? Wow, hha.

        inorite, isn't it gorgeous outside? Went for a stroll on Masson and picked up a bright red computer desk from Rona. It was on sale for 30$+tax, so not bad at all! Sturdy, classy little thing, too! Even came with a matching chair, PLUS it only took about 5min to install. It's great lol

        I live around Masson/d'Iberville @ Laurier, btw.

        Oh, and if we find it funny / amusing, it's not a mean laugh; it's 'cause we think u's a kootiepye.

          Lady said there were six left! It's made of aluminum and is perfect for laptops. There's no keyboard placement, though - just a simple desk, but it's sturdy and functional, even if you just wanna keep your keyboard on your lap.

          My other desk broke in half... so...

          It's at the Rona at Masson/Saint-Michel. Take the 47 East from Laurier, or the 67 South from Saint-Michel and get off when you see the DesJardins and Jean-Coutu (just after the Subway at Rosemont).

          His French is way better than mine, but I still found the video funny. Or at least the typed out translation because the word in context is what made it work XD I know not how to speak French. Can't understand it either when spoken to. Went to France once and tried to ask "Where is the washroom?" at some restaurant or something. And... well, my vocabulary is pretty small so it came out very roughly as "I love the toilet".

          Also, $30 seems pretty good for desk + chair.

          I know the feels. We're learning about the y/en pronouns and whatnot. I'm getting it so far, it's not that bad.

          I tried learning German for a time, but it interfered with my French so I say und instead of et and danke instead of merci. It took me a long time to figure out what the equivalent of danke once, made for many awkward silences.
