I would think that you'd want to actually be correct about what you're talking about.

I could think that the sky is green but that doesn't make it so.

So, you're Conservative, but you *could* also be NDP or Green Party? Is that even possible? Talk about being on opposite sides of the political spectrum!

It's great to be politically aware at a young age but you should also study, or at least know, some of each party's platforms before making broad statements.

The Green party is realistically stealing mostly Liberal and NDP votes. Barring some major controversy or screw up there will be a minority or majority Conservative win.

The Green party is just overlapping in the hotly contested area of the "left" by being a Ralph Nader spoiler. The "right" used to lose all the time because there were 2 conservative parties.

As long as the liberals have a weak leader with no "Trudeau" charisma and they can't get votes from the NDP and Greens then Conservatives should be solid with one party.

What is most surprising is that the Bloc voters are voting more conservative instead of Liberal. Now that Conservatives look at Quebec as a separate country Bloc voters side with them. Everything else about the Bloc is more in common with the NDP. Quebec has got complicated politics.

Politics is indeed complicated here, but the Conservatives do not consider us a separate country. They passed a motion calling Quebecers a nation, falling far short of calling the province itself a nation. It's all semantics, of course, but Harper introduced the motion to woo so-called "soft-nationalists" and steal key voters from the Bloc. It seems to be working, unfortunately, as Harper has positioned the Conservatives as the party that looks after Quebec's interests with his brand of federalism.

Look for the Conservatives to do well in the Quebec countryside but very poorly in the metropolitan areas of the province, especially Montreal which will almost completely vote Liberal. Conservatives doing well in the rural areas? What a shock.

And speaking of the "Trudeau" effect, Pierre's son, Justin, is running in my former riding of Papineau, and will almost certainly win a seat. Should be interesting, to say the least.

At least the Trudeau boys are cute, unlike that spawn of Mulroney. :shallow:

The effect has worn off. He's too pseudo-intellectual with pretensions that he will be popular like his father. He has too much of his ditzy mother in him to convince. There's always a vague hippy expression on his face. Liberals need to rewrite their playbook.

I always knew that if the liberal party couldn't resurrect Trudeau from the grave they would try and get his kids to try. Dynasty politics make me yawn.

Ben Mulroney is not as conservative as his dad so he would probably be a liberal instead.

Canada is about regions. Whoever can get as many different regions voting the same way wins. Especially in Ontario and Quebec where less votes are needed per post.

I anticipate a minority win for Harper and the Liberals will be looking for a new leader.

It can't be any worse than Jack Layton's tv commercials.

I fail to see how they possibly come close to the level of insincerity and bullshit in those Harper ones I posted earlier...
