I think the vetting process for candidates is broken.

I'm always just amazed that they're able to find this stuff. How the hell do you think to comb through 12 years of social media activity for one Green Party candidate who likely has no chance of being elected?

This made me laugh

Public security

Public Safety being THE number one priority of the Rhinoceros Party, our government is committed to making the necessary efforts to ensure safety from coast to coast to coast.

To help victims of identity theft, the Rhinoceros Party is committed to providing a new name and a new date of birth to citizens who request it.

To increase the safety of Canadian children, newborns’ first names must be at least 12 letters, including a capital letter, a number, and a special character.

Well they have the most realistic Green Plan of any of the parties.

in my riding so far there are only three candidates.
Conservative, PPC and Liberal.
no NDP or green as of yet. no Rhino.

(I casually considered trying to be the Rhino candidate but didn't want to bother people to get the signatures)

If anyone is curious, I took this from Elections Canada

https://www.elections.ca/home.aspx

"Please note that the nomination process for candidates closes on Monday, September 30, 2019, and a complete list of confirmed candidates will be available on Wednesday, October 2, 2019. "

Sébastien CoRhino is the Supreme Dealer of the Rhinoceros Party of Canada. He lives in a rural small town of Eastern Québec, named Saint-Donat-de-Rimouski-doo. He’s been traveling from coast to coast, having been in New Found Land as young as 16 years old, when he told his parents he was going there to get bilingual. They laughed a lot at him, but he went nevertheless. Nobody goes to NFL to get bilingual!

At age 22, Sébastien traveled to Yukon, visiting the West Edmonton Mall on the way up. He was then amazed of how big and beautiful it was, and still is. West Edmonton Mall is as big, tough, real and is a purely Canadian artifact, and the example on how to build a strong Canada.


Sébastien CoRhino is in politics to provide a reliable and long term vision for Canada. He wrote the plan 2015-3015 for the future of Canada, but he didn’t got elected with it. He’s still unsure about why Canadians didn’t brought him to power with this long term vision, so maybe he’ll write a 6 months plan for 2019. But that’s still to see…

Love it - makes about as much sense as real politics. The Rhinos can do some damage this election by syphoning the smarky meme votes.

I always find this thing hilarious because everyone on this site has me painted as this dyed in the wool progressive, but I always end up right in between the NDP and Liberals economically, but more socially conservative than either party.

I will say that the Greens appear to have the best policies regarding drugs and safe injection sites, which is kind of my number one issue.

I think it's safe to say, one way or another a turd will be running the country.
