New Member From Canada

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Trigger_the_rookie, May 6, 2013.


  1. Hey y'all. The Rookie reporting for indoc.

    A little bit about myself; I'm a single guy in his (very) early thirties who lives out in the country in the middle-northern part of Alberta about 20 miles (yes, miles, not kms) from the Saskatchewan border. I am a firearms enthusiast and, naturally, tend towards libertarian right-wing politics. For the last year I've been doing quite a bit of research and acquiring equipment which would serve well if things take a turn for the worse on our beautiful continent. It works to my favor that after years on the rigs I finally graduated to a nice supervisory desk job at the rig which allows me ample funds and 'web time to feed the mind.

    I stumbled across this forum while researchin the vaunted and hotly debated NiFe cell. The particular thread I read was a mixture of information and forum drama. I suspected that I might just feel at home here. After discovering that there is a 'tin foil lounge', my suspicions were confirmed. This server does have a firewall to block z-ray data packets from the orbiting reptile ships, right? +grin+

    I'll try my best to not be shy, and contribute to discussions when and where I have something worthy. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about Canada, or if you wanna talk guns, politics, prepparation, motorcycles, economics, or any of those other subjects which go so well with a 2nd bottle of whiskey and some nice Dominican cigars.

    Cheers!

  3. Yes, sir! I ride American, Japanese, whatever I can throw a leg over. Also Proud to say that I support the NFA and CSSA (the Canadian firearm orgs) as well as the NRA. Oh! I also support the troops. -raised that way, was a cadet, etc... A pre-emptive Thank You to all the forum members who have served, serve, or will serve. My hat is off to you, and if you see me at the bar, it's a round on me.

    Welcome! I am always interested in what people are thinking & doing outside US borders. Canada is so quiet, occasionally I see the students protesting but generally our Northern neighbors quietly go about their business.

  9. Motomom:
    Yeah... Those school riots... Seems to be the hip thing to do in the city of Montreal. In the summer of last year, a leader named Pauline Marois of the Parti Quebecois marched with the "Red Square" student groups to protest proposed hikes in tuition. She ended up winning the autumn election. When budget time came she ended up hiking tuition to the tune of $75/year for the next 4 years. The students LOST IT! Apparently University tuition is free in France, so.... Yeah....

    On the West coast we have a provincial election for BC coming up. It's the incumbent BC Liberals vs the socialist New Democrat Party battling for the top while the Conservatives and a fringe enviro party battle for scraps. The last time NDP was in power, the economy was basically decimated. Let's hope that pure dumb luck steers things in the right way, because I don't give much credit to the collective memory of VOX Populi...

    Sloth: Lloydminster is the spot, although my favorite dive bar closed down last time I was away. Web footed and slow movin'? Something tells me you spend a lot of time under a red flag with a white diagonal stripe. Next dunk in the pacific rim? Hopefully just for fun, and nothing official, eh?
