2023.06.05 05:24 LilTofupuff Question about a 60 day notice to vacate
My landlord called me on Tuesday May 30th to let me know they were going to do major construction on the property I live on, and they would send me a 60 day notice to vacate. My landlord expressed if I move out sooner even better, but this wasn’t in writing. I just signed my new lease today, and I’m wondering how I proceed, do I send a 30 day notice as usual? I’m in California and I’ve lived at this location for over a year and I’m pretty sure my landlords are suppose to compensate moving costs or waive my last months rent, is this correct? The form they sent me stated I would pay my normal rent for both June and July, which would mean none is waived.
Thanks for reading! Any advice is appreciated.

2023.06.05 05:23 Fokouttahere Is it just me, or are young people royally f*cked?
I don't know where else to post this, but this seems like a good place. I just can't get it out of my head how the boomers have completely foked over the younger generations. I mean just look at the salaries that they used to have in the 70's and 80's! An uneducated white male could walk into a factory and walk out with a handshake and a job. He could support his wife and 7 kids on that one salary! I mean they only had one car, that was constantly breaking down. He actually knew how to work on it and could fix anything in his 2 bedroom 1 bath home, because it was either fix it himself or go without since he couldn't actually afford to pay anyone else to do it. But that was because he had to save as much as he could so that he could take the lavish vacation of family camping for a week every summer. But since he didn't have an education, he knew the importance of education and made all his kids get an education. Of coarse most boomers are greedy bastards, so they "couldn't afford" to pay their kids tuitions so there they go again foking over the younger generations. I mean for me I just can't believe how the boomers have foked over my generation. Me, my SO, and my white male boomer dad all have to live together, it's literally the only way I can afford rent in Seattle!! It literally requires 3 peoples income to cover rent here! There's 9 degrees between the 3 of us and that's still the reality of it! Of coarse, they're all degrees in dumbass things from private schools that cost 100k per degree but I was told that didn't matter! I just..... when are those damn boomers going to take responsibility for what they've done?? When are they going to start paying their fair share of taxes?? Do you know that the average ceo makes 400 times the amount of their lowest paid employee? Granted people like Musk make that all in stock options, but when are we going to start taxing their stocks- that can adjust in price at any time? I mean seems fair to me to tax people on unrealized money. These boomers just really foked us over....I just want to use the device that's in my hands 24/7, that grants be infinite knowledge, and could easily answer any question i have or explain anything from my post in a logical way, but these boomers need to understand my outrage at when they were born and what they've done to me personally! I just feel so bad for the generations that came after the boomers......I think I'm going to go pray to Bernie Sanders and AOC and call it a night.

2023.06.05 05:23 THEWAGSMAN Finally found an unreported body..
Such an odd and creepy experience.. I was working a pretty dense side job, investigating about 20 different people. I was making my way through the list when one of them brought me to a basement apartment that was COMPLETELY empty except for a bed in the corner and boxes.
I look down, theres a crumpled up note. I read it.
"Let's Play" with a bunch of letters. I think to myself, uh, that's strange. Why is this down here? There was no body? I walk into the back bathroom still confused and suddenly there it is. The body of one of my previous suspects, just dead in the corner.
The whole thing just made me feel very weird, especially since it had been unreported for so long, and there was absolutely no other evidence except for the note. No fingerprints, no weapon, nothing.
Just a lonely guy who lived alone in an empty basement apartment, and he was murdered. And no one knew about it until I came around..

2023.06.05 05:23 Big-Ad-7027 Settlement allocation coming in, around the 40k mark
I'm getting around 40k due to a settlement and I've been thinking about the many ways to put it to good use. I'm just wondering if there's any better way I could be using it. To sum it up, I've come up with two ways to put the money to good use.
Aspirational approach: I wanted to use around $10k for personal use and on my car and customize it the way I've been wanting to, and put the $30k in stocks, savings, and my Roth. Would be driving the car until it dies obviously.
Realistic approach: Put the total sum of $40k in stocks, savings, and Roth and just let it grow for about 5 years just to see where it will be at. With the money (hopefully having gotten a good ROI on it), I want to purchase a home, whether it be for renting out or for it being a personal home.
I feel that most of the answers would point towards the realistic approach, but then my next question would be on how I could maximize my return?

2023.06.05 05:22 FalconOk5006 Any free platform to learn Excel VBA, Tableau, and Power BI? Please help me. I need to study and get a job as soon as possible.
I was working at one of the top IT firms in India. I had to leave the job because they were paying too less, forcing me to come to work without any hike (what's the point of going to office if entire salary will be spent on transportation and rent), and I also had to prepare for exam. Anyway, they had assigned me a project on "PeopleSoft". I did basic setup tasks and security roles. That's maybe just level 2 or 3 out of 10(what others were doing in project). I was a fresher. Now, after working for 2 yrs, I had to leave job. As I am preparing for the exam, I also am looking for jobs. But there aren't any jobs related to PeopleSoft. I have thought of changing my technology entirely. I am thinking of searching for data science/ analysis jobs. Currently I am studying Microsoft excel, VBA, SQL, Power BI, and tableau using the video lessons. But I have no softwares to practice all of this.(they all are too expensive)
I just wanted to ask if what I am doing seems right to you? Could you please advice how to handle the situation? Also, please let me know of free platforms where I can practice these skills. Please help me

2023.06.05 05:20 Lulutheblue52 The Lost Boy
Hi Reddit, as of writing this intro, this all literally just took place. I immediately went here to share my experience, because I might loose some sleep tonight over this.
I live on the second story of an apartment building and my bed is against my window, so I can frequently hear people talking outside. Most of the time, it's the kids playing soccer or our downstairs neighbors talking, but I never hear anything past 8 pm. Currently, it is 10:10 as of writing this, and I can hear a little boy from my window. I checked outside and I can't see anyone, but the voice sounds like it's coming from directly below me. I can hear sirens in the distance, so at first I thought it was a part of the siren. I'm sure of it now though, I can distinctly make out what the boy is saying, "Mom!"
That's it, that's all he says. At first I paid no attention to it, but it's been servral minutes now, and I've started to notice some strange things. Firstly, his tone never changes. It's as if someone recorded this voice and is playing it on repeat. He says "Mom!" every 5 seconds or so without skipping a beat. Second, the boy has been saying this over and over for the past 10 minutes and still hasn't changed his tone or received a response from anyone, not even his mother. It's as if no one else can hear him shouting except for me.
Originally I wasn't going to post this, but it is now a few minutes later and something happened. He kept going on, as per usual, but then I heard another voice. A faint yet dominant, "No." It was a male voice, raspy and toned. I listened in, expecting to hear the boys voice again, but I hear nothing. Just the wind.

2023.06.05 05:19 sybar142857 What's a safe cheap area to rent for a single person with a cat?
Some context: I'm a single guy with a cat looking to move to Bangalore to take a break from my career. I don't drink or party or have a large social circle so I'm not looking to live in expensive places with a large amount of night-life. Since I'm not moving there for work, I don't need to live near the equally expensive office-centric areas of the city as well. I prefer to keep to myself and stay at home most of the time.
What I'm looking for is a 1BHK/1RK in a safe community with basic amenities like clean water and fairly reliable electricity where I can live a quiet life in peace with my cat. A fairly modern metropolitan community would be great too but I feel like I might be asking for too much.
Can I accomplish this under a rent of ₹25k? If so, which places in Bangalore are ideal?
If not, how do I alter my expectations?
I'd appreciate any help you can provide me. Thank you.

2023.06.05 05:19 tetrehedron Gyokko has the coolest demon design yet is the most disappointing.
When we first got introduced to Gyokko and showed his “art” he seemed very menacing and unpredictable. You expect him to have a variety of pot attacks and other forms of special attacks.
His whole fight with Muichiro is very disappointing. They should have made it longer and more intense. I understand Muichiro had his demon slayer mark. But the power scaling seems so off now. His true form did not have any unique attacks or any trump card apart from just slashing. Nothing special about his true form besides looking cool.
For a demon so menacing and ghost-like you expect him to have more tricks up his sleeve in his final form.
I’m so disappointed now with the way this fight went and considering Hantengu seems sort of the same like a gimmick boss fight. I have not much hope for this season in terms of good fights like Regoku vs Akaza, Gyutaro vs Tegen and Tanjiro.

Apart from creating specific poses to generate images in ControlNet, is there something like DragGAN
currently available? For example, if a person is holding a ball a little up to his head and I want the position lowered, is there something simple available which can do it. I can do it in other ways i.e. modify it in photoshop and use generative fill etc, but wanted to know if there is a simpler process available currently.

2023.06.05 05:19 throwaway040323 Losing my entire life 2 months ago
My grandpa raised me because my parents were dogshit. He passed away in April and ever since then, my mom has gone psycho controlling and refusing to help any of us with anything. She's sold the houses he had that we were staying in despite one of them being paid off since 1940. She's refused to even let us go shower at her house.
One of my brothers just up and left. No one's heard from him in days. The other brother has at least stayed in contact and helped a bit but he's in the same spot as me.
We were taking care of our grandpa who was unwell for a long time in exchange for a place to love rent free. This was clearly an oversight since none of us, specifically me, were prepared for the kick in the balls known as adulthood.
I've had 3 close attempts that only my grandpa knew about. It was a dark time in my life and to help me, he got me a dog that's now become my lifeline. It stopped the ideation for a few years but since his passing, it's returned heavier than ever.
I've not had contact with any of my friends. Really only online friends because social anxiety irl hindered my ability to make friends in person. The one good friend I made online and have known since I was in high-school and confided in heavily has joined the army so he gets his phone for like 30 minutes once a week.
Today the realization of the entire situation came down like a hammer. I have no where to go. No one to talk to. Savings ran out from my work that I left a while back. All I have is a car filled with clothes, trinkets of my grandpa, and dog food/water.
I'm just completely lost sitting in the parking lot of a walmart with my dog sitting next to me and I just feel like I'm about to implode

Why In the hell are you blaming others for problems in your home that you bought with probably more of your followers money than your own? No I didn’t watch your live, because I was actually working to pay for my bills. You knew before you signed any papers that your money was going to be super tight for this house. You even expressed it a few times on live. Now Im hearing that the inspectors and realtors set you up? Didn’t you hint at something being wrong when it took a decade to get papers notarized/signed for the home? You and Smurf Diddy are the only ones to blame for your poor financial decisions. Absolutely no one else!
You both knew that you couldn’t afford this home and are now trying to bleed your followers and social media “friends” dry. When are you going to put on your big girl panties, get a job, and figure it out for those kids? You shouldn’t of had your followers/moderators push you both into buying that house. You both could hardly keep up with the one you were renting. Y’all are trying to act like you’ve made it, but nothing has changed except you and smurf begging more and more everyday. Wake the fuck up and live in the real world. You’re not famous. Be responsible ass adults! Sorry not sorry… you both are a hell of a lot older than me and I can pay my bills without begging strangers online.

2023.06.05 05:16 Significant_Shop6653 Problem with purchased quilt
I just want to get the opinion of some quilters. I purchased a handmade quilt for my bed from an Etsy seller. It was 100% cotton fabric with 100% polyester batting. The quilt arrived 2 weeks ago, and I noticed that not all the quilt squares were aligned; however, I don’t expect anything homemade to be perfect, and the quilt was very pretty. I machine washed it on delicate cold, tumble dried it on delicate/air dry, then put it on my bed. Yesterday I was changing my sheets when I noticed the quilt was separating along the bias tape; it had 5 holes in it. The Etsy seller refunded my money, but told me it came apart because I washed it. I’ve been sewing for 25+ years, but not really a lot of quilting. Is what the Etsy seller told me true? I have a handmade quilt that is 7+ years old, has been washed multiple times, and has never come apart.

2023.06.05 05:16 Dan_Stainberg [Election] [Retro]Canada Elects 2025: A Real Miracle?
[M]/Doing retro just in case, coz it took me much longer to lay this out lol/[M]
Canadian Federal Elections 101
Canada has inherited its political system from the United Kingdom, sticking to Westminster parliamentary system ever since. This means, that unlike in the United States, the outcome of Canadian elections are won by whichever party manages to elect the greatest number on Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of Canada, allowing the leader of this party to assume the office of Prime Minister.
The Senate of Canada provides for a stark contrast, since despite being originally designed to ensure provincial representation, the upper house remains unelected and is largely subjected to the politics in the House of Commons.
When no party is able to secure more than 50 per cent of seats in the House, a leader of a political party that is able to command more than 50 per cent of MPs, for example through singing supply and confidence or coalition agreements with other parties, becomes Prime Minister instead. Historically, however, the largest party in the House of Commons tends to form a monitory government, when it commands a plurality of MPs, rather than an outright majority. This allows the largest party to remain in power, but it has to rely on MPs from other political factions to pass crucial pieces of legislation, especially when it comes to votes that indicate parliamentary confidence, such as federal budgets. Losing those votes, would effectively mean that the current government has to either be completely re-staffed with new Cabinet Ministers, or call a snap election.
However, minority governments remained fairly uncommon in Canada, since the current voting system, called First-Past-the-Post (FPTP), allows for individual MPs to win their respective ridings - also known as constituencies - to be elected into the House of Commons with a simple plurality of votes. Thus, a political party can win most seats in the House of Commons through strategically placing their bets on ridings with very tight margins, where just one extra vote may allow their nominee to win a permanently seat, effectively making all votes for the opposition candidate in that riding meaningless.
For example, the Liberal Party of Canada has won the last two federal elections with a plurality of seats in the House of Commons, despite coming only 2nd to the Conservative Party of Canada during popular vote
. The Liberals, despite becoming the largest party in the House still fell short of winning the majority of seats, being forced to rely on the New Democratic Party, that represented are more progressive social democratic part of the electorate, for crucial votes. Later, the Government has called a snap election aiming to get their desired majority, but failed, and had to sign a formal Supply and Confidence Agreement with the NDP, that included a massive package of social programmes, such as the recently implemented national dental care and prescription drug insurance.
However, while enjoying a steady lead in polls vis-a-vis, the federal Conservatives during the pandemic, the Liberals had experienced persistent slump as post-pandemic recovered coupled with sticky inflation and rapidly deteriorating housing crisis. As the Federal Conservatives have moved to the right following the election of a new leader, they have utilised concurrent economic challenges and liberal economic policy, blaming the current government's pandemic related emergency spending coupled with expansion of social programs as the root cause for inflation into collapsing housing affordability. As Canada had to respond to America's Inflation Reduction Act with a new public investment into green transition, conservative criticism of the Trudeau government has become ever more vocal, with fiscal deficits presumably exacerbating, concurrent inflationary pressures.
Liberal policies, especially introducing the federal backstop mechanism for carbon pricing, has also spurred, vicious opposition, among Conservatives, especially those living in the Western Canada, that culminated in the razor-thin re-election of the United Conservatives in the oil-producing province of Alberta. The federal response to the freedom, convoy protest, as well as the general push, forever wider collective community during the pandemic, has created some fertile soil for the opposition, Conservatives to capitalise on, especially as the more moderate leader of the party had been ousted shortly after the convoy protest.
After more than eight years in government, the liberal party has also been embroiled in several corruption and ethics candles, including the SNC-Lavallin affair
, the pandemic-era ArriveCan App scandal
, and, most recently, the accusations of Chinese electoral interference
, and Chinese police stations operating in Canada.
In fact, the situation for the current government has become so dire. It's a point, but more than 80% of forecasters projected a Conservative minority government has the most probable outcome for the next election. According to some polls, the Liberals would be unable to form a government, even with the support of the New Democratic Party. The liberal convention in late spring 2023, didn't provide much of a relief either, how's the party continued to lack a comprehensive platform to combat the issue of housing and affordability - something that steadily climbed the rate of priorities for many Canadians, to become the most pressing issue, when deciding who to vote for. If anything, the Conservative party has become the most popular political force, among younger Canadians, with their laser, sharp focus on the issue of inflation and housing affordability.
The issue of housing affordability has become central to the Conservative Convention, where the Party has committed to "restoring" home ownership across the country, through planning laws deregulation and "removing resections on the supply of housing". This would see the federal government to tie federal spending on housing to municipalities shortening approval times, waive HST/GST for housing, as well as allow landlords to re-invest their profits into new housing tax-free. The Conservative convention also proposed federal infrastructure funding to be linked to higher-density housing construction.
What did, however, play in favour of the current government, what is the time. Within Canadian Parliamentary system, the Prime Minister can call an election effectively anytime, so long their term doesn't exceed the four year threshold, that was approaching at Fall 2025, supported by the Supply and Confidence Agreement with New Democrats. As inflation in North America has started slowly subsiding to return to the 2% target in early fall 2024, Trudeau has managed to re-gain some the economic credibility his government has seemingly lost. The Liberals have also continued their tilt to make some inroads into the NDP camp, with the Federal Budget 2024 going heavily on Net Zero and Green Transition.
However, the Liberals also had to deal with a political deadline, whether to call and election before or after the Budget 2025 would've been published. The former might allow the LPC to avoid the criticism of "buying up votes" that the party received after calling the snap election shortly after introducing their Federal Budget in 2021. However, Trudeau also had a stake at deferring the election for long as possible, hoping that waiving inflationary pressure might open up more space for the Liberals to re-gain the economic ground over the Conservatives.
Federal Election 2025
After long deliberation, the federal Cabinet has opened to hold an election in late March 2025, right at the time when a government would have normally tabled their budget. The election that both the Liberals and the Conservatives have approached after almost a year or neck-and-neck perforce in the polls, with Trudeau having a minuscule advantage in personal ratings.
The economy, especially housing affordability, have become two main issues during this election, closely followed by healthcare - namely access to family physicians and waiting times for selected procedures - and the issue of inflation still lingering at the back of the public debate.
Trudeau himself because a matter for the debate, with the Liberals banking on his personal likability, while Federal Conservatives continuously pressed with corruption and ethical scandals and corruption allegations, combined with the Liberal campaign continuously bringing up the "electability issue" of their opponents.
With the Tories enjoying slight lead on the matter of economic competence, the Liberals opted to treat the housing crisis as a matter of social policy, while banking heavily on personal popularity of Trudeau himself. From the policy-standpoint, LPC Election Platform has effectively copied the proposal originally voiced during the Conservative Convention. Namely, waiving GST/HST for housing construction, allowing landlords to re-invest their profits into constructing more units tax-free, as well as linking federal spending to new housing development and liberalising permitting process. The difference with the Conservatives was the focusing on new federal spending to combat housing affordability.
Liberal election promises involved the commitment for new federal housing construction to exceed population growth by the end of the first term, through the government directly contracting private developers to build more affordable housing, and task the Canada Infrastructure Development Corporation to provide funding to non-market housing in numbers meeting or exceeding population growth in larger metropolitan areas on Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal, and across Atlantic Canada.
Unlike the Tories, Trudeau also went further, promising the government would cover development charges for projects that included affordable housing. The Liberals have also committed to conducting of affordable rental housing, aimed at younger Canadians and those who are yet to start cloning the property ladder. Conservatives on the other hand emphasised Trudeau's poor track on housing affordability, combined focusing on making home ownership more affable through market-driven construction of new units for sale.
Both Team Blue and Team Red have committed to expediting the arrival of new skilled trades professionals, especially those working in the housing sector, including interest-free loans to have their qualifications recognised or to up-skill their existing credentials. Liberals however, took a step further, promising automatic Permanent Residency who has worked in residential construction after 1 year, as well issuing Open Work Permits - exempt from the Labour Market Impact Assessment - to anyone with construction work experience willing to come to Canada, so long they continue working in the construction sector for the majority of their time before obtaining permanent residency. The Tories on their part suggested granting PR automatically after they've worked in construction for at least 5 years.
On the matter of banning foreign buyers, both parties have committed to banning home purchases in Canada for those who do not hold Canadian citizenship or are not Permanent Residents of Canada, with Liberals maintaining existing exemptions, so long the person buying has invested an equivalent amount in affordable housing construction.
Rhetorically, the Liberals have echoed the National Housing Act 1938, suggesting their government would run fiscal deficits to finance nation-wide home construction, especially affordable rental units. CPC has openly accused Trudeau of "policy stealing" choosing to emphasis permitting deregulation, subsidies for new units, and investing more construction professionals.
Healthcare & Social Care
Federal Conservatives have focused their attack in increasing waiting times, as well as increasing shortage of medical professionals across the country. Liberals, however, aimed to conservative proposals to introduce more private providers into the system, while emphasising their expansion of public health insurance that now covers both dental care and prescription drugs. Both parties suggested increasing the immigration intake for doctors, nurses, medical researches, providing financial support to have their credentials recognised in Canada as well as to update their skills.
The Liberals have however suggested lowering tuition rates international students who come to study health, social care, and eduction, granted them access to domestic rates of tuition, as well as a designated pathway to Permanent Residency for health, eduction, and social care who have obtained at least 1560 hours of Canadian work experience, and received at least part of their eduction in Canada. This would come as a supplementary measure, with domestic students becoming eligible for federal student loan write off if they have accumulated at least 1 year of post-graduation work experience in health, social care, or education - so long their degree is in the same field.
The Liberals have also committed to covering a Royal Commission to introduce a national social care insurance programme for seniors and people with disabilities.
The Conservatives suggest introducing "full expensing" allowing companies to deduct up 120 per cent of their expenses on machinery, equipment, and non-residential property, akin to UK's Super Deduction
, to combat Canada's low investment levels. They also propose to introduce tax credits for Canadian companies to up-skill their workers, as well as increased federal funding to provinces to support job training and second career programmes and labour market integration.
The Liberals suggest increasing the minimum wage in federally-regulated institutions, linking as a proportion of executive pay. LPC also pledged to introduce at least 4 weeks of paid vacation after 1 year on employment, with additional increases in line with employee tenure, as outlined in their Convention 2023, while brining paid leave of up to 6 weeks a year, allowing recipients to tradition onto disability payments after that.
Both parties have committed to supporting Employee Ownership Trusts, as well as introduction of worker representation on corporate boards in federally-regulated industries. Team Red however to it a step further, suggesting they will employee ownership mandatory for large corporations , with the only exemption provided for profit-sharing schemes.
Both parties have also supported reforming Canada's Employment Insurance Program:
The Conservatives suggest introducing Individual EI Savings Accounts
that any Canadian can access whenever they are let go of their job or decide to quit. The proposed accounts would be funded through mandatory employer and employee contributions and could also be used to pay for labour training and re-skilling, with means-tested federal assistance available for those who's exhausted their accounts. Tories also suggest expanding current marginal earnings projection to apply to both individual and household income. The party also suggests waiving EI Premiums and provide rebates for C/QPP Contribution rebates to those not paying federal income tax, to guarantee every Canadian can earn at least $1000 a month free of payroll deductions.
Trudeau on the other hand suggested making EI coverage universal, and providing up to 90 per cent wage replacement in the first month of claim, while also introducing EI Benefit Floor, where every Canadian would be entitled to a minimum benefit equal to federal minimum wage regardless of their original earnings, for as long as they have enough insurable hours. The Liberal plan also introduces expands "working while on claim" provision, allowing people collecting EI benefits to have their wages supplemented through the program so their total paycheque reaches at least 90 per cent of their average 5-year earnings at all times
, regardless whether the claimant is eligible for EI Regular Benefits. EI Parental Benefits are set to be fixed at at least 60 per cent of the family's income, subject o the benefit floor. Liberals suggest paying for the programme through waiving maximum insurable earnings to levy EI Premiums on all income of an individual, while introducing cap on benefits linked to median regional wages. However, the basic exemption shall be aligned to the federal income tax minimum threshold. Surpluses generated should be used to pay for expanded WWoC provisions and putting EI Operating Account back into surplus.
Both parties also committed to brining in a Canada Savers' Credit that mirrors both the amounts and eligibly criteria of the GST/HST tax credit, but is instead deposited in people's Tax Free Savings Accounts (TFSAs) and automatically invested into corporate equity. Tories and Liberals also support introducing automatic enrolment
for Registered Retirement Savings Plans (RRSPs), Registered Eduction Savings Plans (RESPs), Registered Disability Savings Plans (RDSP), First Homebuyer Savings Accounts (FHSAs) and TFSAs upon either birth of obtaining Canadian tax residency for eligible non-Canadians. While the Conservative proposal would new accounts automatically linked to existing financial institutions the individual already has an account in, the Liberals instant new accounts should be automatically assigned to a new independent crown corporation, so long the primary account holder haven't decided to the move their registered accounts to an eligible financial institution.
Both parties pitch the policy as a potential interim solution to address Canada's sky-high household debt
, through increased asset ownership and participation in stock markets.
When it comes to fiscal policy, the Liberal Government suggests they'll keep their "structural deficit" - as defined by tax revenues versus programme expedites - bellow the rate of economic growth over the 10 year period. LPC however is open they'll not restrain their spending on new housing construction, Ottawa set to absorb almost all the costs of housing under the liberal plan. The Conservatives on the other hand suggest introducing the $1 for $1 rule for federal expenditure, where every dollar of new spending has to be offset by a dollar in spending cuts or increased taxes, suggesting to balance the budget in their first 5 years in the office.
Somewhat comically, the Liberals seem to be attacking Conservative proposals on the grounds it may bring back the pain on the nighties - referring to the Chretien austerity era - especially in Atlantic Canada and the Regions of Quebec where benefit dependency ratios have traditionally been elevated.
The Liberals have also committed to expand existing childcare agreements, to make childcare services and spare available to anyone, and drastically reduce wait times for subsidised spots.
Energy & Environment
The issue has surprisingly played a somewhat muted role during this election, as CPC has contained to opposed federal price on carbon, pressuring the idea of turning Canada into a "natural resource superpower". Liberals on the other hand boasted about their massive investment into Net Zero Transition, while also attacking the Tories one potential fiscal penalties that the government would assume after cancelling the carbon tax. Team Red had also opened to cling to previous commitments of the Conserve Leader to ban overseas oil, which Ontario, and Quebec, as well as Atlantic Canada remain fairly dependent on, due to lack of oil transportation infrastructure from western oil production facilities. Considering the fact Quebec has remained one of Liberal strongholds even at the lowest, as well as the party's perceived electability in the province, CPC would've had even harder to fight for the votes in Quebec.
Tipping the Scales
However, what truly decided this election, was something that may in the future divide the country even more, namely the issue of the French language. Something that has been present in Canadian politics for generations, but something that this time brought a party over the finish line, while completely tanking their opponents.
While both leaders fluent in French, having French Canadian roots, combined with an almost unchallenged dominance of the local Bloc Québécois, it seemed quite unlikely either party would be able to gain any meaningful advantage in Quebec, until both parties have revealed their election manifestos.
Here was the moment the Liberals played their cards best. Namely, the party has committed to supplying French language both within and outside Quebec, through drastically bolstering access to Francophone eduction across the country. The Liberals has committed to introducing a brand-new federal agency tasked with facilitating access to French eduction and integration services - Francisation Canada.
The agency was set to provide free-at-use eduction in French, while also providing up to $1000 a month in finical assistance to immigrants who were willing to learn French. On top of that, the Liberals have committed to make existing Explore and Odyssey Programme universal, integrating them into school curriculums across the country. The Party has also committed to negotiating bilateral agreements with all provinces to provide additional funding and guarantee access to services, including eduction in French across Canada, while making French a mandatory subject for Early Learning & Childcare, as well as in secondary education. LPC would also waive tuition fees for post-secondary eduction in French, and negotiate agreements with other francophone countries, to facilitate French-speaking immigration into Canada and Quebec.
Thus, on the night of the election, the sudden realisation waived through the country. The Liberal Party managed to protect their urban ridings, even in West, as their pledge to "spend whether it takes to make houses and rents affordable for everyone" managed to persuade swing urban voters across the country, combined with their massive investment in green transition. The Tories has also lost their lead in Atlantic Canada, where an idea of a massive EI expansion has resonated with voters much more than the concept of individual accounts. Massive subsidies in battery production have also helped the Liberals to protect their seats across Ontario, especially in former industrial towns. However, what actually brought Trudeau over the finish line, was Quebec. The Combination of absolutely massive investments into green tech, coupled with new social programs, and proposed childcare expansion, on top of the Liberal pledge to "protect and promote the French language from Coast to Coast to Coast" allowed the party to make some significant inroads across the province, despite loosing some suburban ridings, Central Canada gave Trudeau yet another chance to form yet another minority Liberal government.
|Party Name ||Popular Vote ||Seats in the House of Commons of Canada |

2023.06.05 05:15 Salty_Ad_7532 General advice
I'm an electronics geek. I would hoard old technology for what I felt would be future use. It would be everything from connectors, wires, adapters, various tools, RF modulators, etc.
As I left a rather cluttered home for a more satisfying, clean living area I was able to focus more on my bipoladepression/ anxiety and get myself on the right meds.
The process you may ask?
When us hoarders are moving from one place to another, we pack our crap into bins and do our best. Well the best piece of advice I can give you, is moving to a smaller space for only what you really need. Don't focus on oodles and oodles of space or that creates opportunity for more hoarding.
I was forced into a low income rental. Beautiful two-story townhouse style apartment. Can't complain, but it's what I needed to break the cycle.
Chances are, you can give away or throw away most of any junk or possessions you took with you if you plan on not using them within 6 months. I'm still a work in progress. I have a cluttered mind, therefore it's hard to focus on organizing and getting rid of things I know I'll never need or use. There are breakthroughs you can accomplish, but it takes a matter of getting therapy, the right meds, eating well and finding ways to hyperfocus on all the possessions you wish to give away or throw away. Best to find a local group online where they support giveaways in the local area. Sometimes one person's junk is another person's treasure. It all takes time. I've been at my rental for 6 going on 7 years and it's still not done yet, but everytime I empty a bin from moving day and organize my things, I giveaway the bin so that I'm not tempted to just store stuff. It takes time and patience.

2023.06.05 05:14 cyclequalm23 AITA for backing out of a cycling trip?
My gf is saying it's my fault she can’t go and it makes me an AH so I was wondering...
My gf Mara (23F) and I (24M) live together in a different city to her main friendship circle. The reason we moved was because I had a job opportunity and it was too good to miss.
Mara wants to see her friends in that city but there's one boy there she really dislikes but managed to finesse his way into the group, Mark (24M). She used to date him when they were teenagers and they have completely different political views.
One of the things she wants to do in the city is a bike trail ride however no-one else wants to come with her apart from Mark so she also asked me to go. I don't want to for a number of reasons:
- I can't cycle confidently, especially not on mountain bike trails
- I also don't like Mark, he's tried to one up me before regarding my girlfriend
- I don't own a bike and would have to rent or borrow one from someone else and I don't want to go through the hassle of returning it
My gf is saying my refusal means she has to cycle with Mark alone and she doesn't want to so I need to come with her or she can't go. However, I don't feel safe on the the trail anyway and I don't feel like breaking an arm which I think trumps her discomfort at having to cycle with Mark. AITA?

2023.06.05 05:13 StaffLongjumping8939 Advice? Encouragement? Literally anything would be great
My boyfriend and I have been together for going on a year and a half, he graduated academy in this past april. I understand well enough that he’s not gonna tell me much that’s going on at work, I have severe anxiety and we’ve discussed that he doesn’t want to worry me, and I wouldn’t expect him to as it is. We live almost an hour apart so I see him once a week-once every week and a half depending on his work schedule. I knew what I was getting into but I just miss getting to talk to him. He’s on nights right now and I know he’s still getting used to everything but at the same time I only get like three texts from him a day now and that’s it. If I send him something on his days off even he barely responds even if it’s important unless it’s the last thing I send him. I guess it just feels like we’re disconnected? I don’t know. Any advice here?😂

2023.06.05 05:13 plnnyOfallOFit I'm in over my head
trying to help a QXfriend who once helped me. We were in a pure food cult of sorts and I escaped, but she got worse. She kind of "got out", but went on into the Qult. Any money she had in her life she spent on expensive foods and "pure" lifestyle.
I have a hard time "in the normal world too", but bought a solid home and worked a solid career, on fixed income now, everything is rationed.
She is now broke & homeless and called me crying saying she was in an abusive situation. I am renting the house I own for a year to help my daughter finish in her art school abroad. I'm in the process of deep cleaning and screening renters.
I told her she could move here and help me deep clean & then live in the tiny lockOFF and get a job, save money and then be on her way.
Turns out she interviewed for just one catering job that starts in a month.
She won't work in many places inc out local huge hospitol that of course requires a Covid vaccine. She won't work anyplace that uses "toxins" to clean or air fresh etc. Now she claims to have hurt her hand cleaning with me in my home. I told her to wear gloves but "latex" or whatever.
She records herself saying conspiracy theories that I think she posts on YouTube. I don't have the stomach to see these.
Her hand and joints have all swelled up and she has obvious signs of infection. She refuses to take antibiotics, instead asked me to purchase organic herbs. I told her no, that's her job to buy expensive herbs.
Her checks aren't accepted anyplace near us, and she claims her bank was hacked, because "The world is a crazy place". Etc. She can't really help me clean afterall because of infections n all.
Anyway. She is ANNOYING and I should have compassion but...I just want her to go someplace else.
How the HELL do I get her to go. It's barely been 10 days and I"m jumping out of my skin.
Thanks for reading this. How do I get her to GO NOW

2023.06.05 05:13 ovsa55 Bad brakes?
I recently bought a DS-2, 5th gen and although Trek is advertising them as having Textra brakes, mine came with Pro-Max, a branding never heard of. I get the whole supply side shortages and I would mind if they were of the same quality but After less than 100 kms on the new bike, I get this grinding noise from the rear brake when going down hills, so after heating up a bit. Upon closer look I see a gouge starting to form on the disc. Any one else have this problem? Is it the normal wearing in ? Should I take it back to the shop, ( 3 week backlog for someone to look at,) I've sprayed some brake cleaner and compressed air in there, but I didn't really want to take things apart as it's still under warranty. Only occurs when hot.
