    Your opinion on making college/university cheaper/more affordable or free?

    Well, making university cheap/free but selective or difficult to get into is another tack. I guess sometimes many people find it hard to square the fact that education has to be for the masses and also free/cheap. But the thing is society is still set up so that a university degree feels just...

    What explains this geographic trend of a high percentage of young adults living with parents in Southern Ontario?

    I had thought of this initially, but then I'm wondering why somewhere like Oshawa (which has less of these groups and is less expensive to boot) is nearly just as high. In the linked bar graph in my OP, the more diverse and more expensive Toronto CMA has 47.4% and the less diverse and less...

    What explains this geographic trend of a high percentage of young adults living with parents in Southern Ontario?

    I understand that the high cost of living means that Torontonian young adults likely stay at home longer to save money before being able to have a place of their own. Also, a diverse city like Toronto has many people growing up in cultures where it's more common to live with parents longer into...

    Population of Toronto (Including 2011 Census Counts)

    Is this due to Toronto's domestic migration or immigration numbers being stronger than LA's, or less out-migration? I know the Texan cities, like Houston have been growing quickly due to both domestic migration from other states and cities, immigration, local birthrates and more affordable housing.

    Countdown to 2047: The Death of Hong Kong?

    Reading the quotes from that article that suspects foreign influence from China make it indeed sound almost cartoonishly propagandistic. Maybe it's something in translation, but it sounds like what you'd expect a troll from abroad to stereotypically sound like, talking about "blood" and...

    President Donald Trump's United States of America

    The US is fighting a trade war not just with Canada though, but with other countries which they also depend on. So both the US and Canada (the US fighting the trade war with multiple countries of which Canada is just one, and Canada, which is responding primarily to the US in the trade war) are...

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    There's some kind of narrative that Ford won because left-leaning people didn't like the choices and were apathetic similar to the "Trump won because left wing voters, especially those who would have liked Bernie Sanders, stayed home and were unmotivated to go and vote for Hillary" but I'm not...

    Do Canadians more readily see a foreign-born citizen as "still one of us" than many other countries?

    I wonder if individual visible minority or immigrant groups in Canada feel more or less solidarity towards one another than in the US. In the US, even before Trump, but certainly visibly in the time of Trump, when anti-immigrant sentiment is voiced, lots of minority groups on the left seem to...

    Do Canadians more readily see a foreign-born citizen as "still one of us" than many other countries?

    Chinese Canadians in the GTA seem so strongly PC these days (not sure if it's the case in other places like BC), and they were very pro-Ford Nation in places like Scarborough -- is this a long term trend? Stateside, Asian Americans are getting more Democrat relative to past generations, so it...

    Does being Canadian-owned (or perhaps made, if relevant) factor in your choice of shopping?

    I made this thread over two years ago. Have your opinions changed since then, in light of the US-Canada relationship now?

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    Canada already has a pretty educated (in terms of years of schooling) populace relative to many countries. There also needs to be more high-skill work in the country created for people to do. To avoid the "overqualified young person or recent graduate working low wage jobs" problem.

    Premier Doug Ford's Ontario

    It's interesting to see all this coverage of Doug Ford from outsiders and how it's framed. BBC: Doug Ford: Brother of notorious Rob Ford takes over Ontario https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-44605204 earlier in the month, when Ford won NPR: Doug Ford, Brother Of Late Toronto Mayor Rob...

    President Donald Trump's United States of America

    So, from the US side, I'm seeing awareness that many Canadians are boycotting their products in response to the trade war, for example as covered by this NPR article. Do you guys think that many Canadians are really this unified and strongly choosing to "buy Canadian"? "Across Canada, people...

    Do Canadians more readily see a foreign-born citizen as "still one of us" than many other countries?

    Data from 2016, but just by going off this, there are some western countries that put less emphasis on birthplace as defining national identity, but Canada is still portrayed (still at this time) as a country that's relatively pro-immigrant relative to most of the western world. Source...

    Do Canadians more readily see a foreign-born citizen as "still one of us" than many other countries?

    In light of the Ontario election, would the odds of this kind of movement taking off now be higher?
