Exactly, and its not as if all of humanity looks up to inner city hipsters, BMW driving corporate lawyers, sports fanatics or left leaning political advocates as role models either.

Ask AJ how likely would someone in Montreal be considered a 'redneck' I mean were they 'beaten' into submission by the metrosexual movement
I guess I forgot to put a little smiley next to my post!

Anyway, these guys when you do find them in Canada tend to be less "edgy" than their equivalents in the U.S.

Kinda like the guy in the ball cap in the second photo here!

I don't know. That guy kind of scares me. I know, I know I shouldn't judge a person on one photo, but the hat says a lot.

Well I think when people think of a redneck they think of someone rather close minded and hasn't had a lot of experience dealing with people outside their envelope. I mean when I think of a redneck - I don't think of someone who is an urban cat working an office job and having sushi after work with coworkers or jetting off to Europe for a holiday, I think of someone who lives in a more rural setting and maybe shoots birds with BB guns or does stupid s*it you see on youtube like jumping off their house and landing awkwardly and injuring themselves while all their redneck buddies laugh. So I don't think at least where i'm from we look at them as being criminal - just sort of closed and you know - redneck..

Leave it to the Conservative party of Ontario to totally blow it by voting for the biggest idiot from a pool of otherwise decent candidates. I honestly can't vote for this guy and in spite of Wynne's obvious flaws I think i'll be voting liberal yet again. If the Cons voted Elliot or Mulroney in I would have been more than open to giving them my vote but just not him!!

There are some parallels to the 2016 U.S election and what is going on in Ontario right now. Outside the Greater Golden Horsehoe, economic growth has been pretty paltry since Wynne took office and a lot of people are really pissed at her and the libs. Change of government is really in order but the alternative is just too untenable for my liking. I think the guy with the hat in that pic is probably a joker actually playing off the stereotype that Ford is Canada's version of Trump. There are some parallels but Ford actually has a descent relationship with immigrants and minorities in the GTA and has never spoken negatively about immigration so there are certainly differences. That said, Ford's smile is as phony as a 3 dollar bill. I've met the man before and he is 'jittery' and easily distracted.. Something just 'off'
