That's presently being done with money though. The middle class is drying up quite quickly, so we're left with the elite, upper class and the downtrodden lower class. The only way you can get started in politics is money. Grassroots just doesn't work any more.

Default Canadas firearms issuses!

I have been a soldier for 20 years with to much time out of the country doing things and seeing things which no one in there right mind needs to see. Up till I retired I took our laws for granted in respect to firearms, since I carried an automatic all of the time. Now back in Canada I am treated as a crimminal just for applying for a restricted and a non-restricted weapons permit. I do not believe that we as Canadaians have that beautiful remark "to keep and bear arms. I guess that the best we can do is to keep the golf putter by the door for those un-fortunates which wish to gain entry without permission.

If we aren't careful we will require a shift from prosperity to survival as a nation.

My 2 cents.
Maybe we can also wish Santa Claus into existence.

Not a "wish" on my part, just a statement.

Probably about the same probability as getting the aforementioned nationalism back though.

Back to the original post... I think it's a terrible idea. All LEGAL, law abiding citizens over 18 yrs old. should have the right to vote.
Let's just keep the illegals and incarcerated criminals from voting like certain Liberals want!
