I do take solace in that those twits will have to walk around in the snow and cold.

I live in a corner house and they always descend on me like vultures to put signs up. Sigh.

I do find it interesting how Canadians appear to be uniformily ambivalent about all the political parties.

yeah, there was a poll on CBC.ca about how 47% of Canadians say it's time to kick out Liberals but 47% say Liberals are better than Conservatives. 73% don't expect politicians to keep their promises. Almost two-thirds see no difference between the parties in terms of honesty and integrity. While 94% feel honest/integrity is an issue when making their decision.

What does this mean? I think it means minority government, and more elections later next year.

I'm just waiting for 5 years from now to see Belinda Stronach run against Peter MacKay. Booyah!

This is fascinating to watch. I'm interested to see how it all turns out.

Now that will be interesting!



This is Harper's last shot - he's toast after this election. Bye-bye Stephen!

If the Conservatives had half a brain, they'd have tossed Harper out like yesterday's garbage. But because they thought that Gomery would save their asses and be much worse for Paul Martin et al., they thought they could keep Harper and count on the public to eliminate the Liberals. In the end, it seems that the public has accepted that some level of corruption exists in politics no matter who is in charge, and that combined with Gomery placing the blame almost squarely on Chretien has landed the Conservatives back where they started. Which is why I think Harper's days are numbered.

this is part two of the election. part 1 took place in the spring of last year.

the issues are all pretty much the same, except now i'd venture that national unity has replaced health care as one of the key issues along with integrity.

if you want to see a full list of all the different polls, and their results, go here: http://www.nodice.ca/elections/canada/polls.php

It feels to me like the same election all over again. I still don't like Harper, Layton although a decent fellow.. will likely land in the same situation. And Duceppe is... Duceppe.

It's election time again and time to vote for who is least worst.

You know I wish the Canadian Alliance and PC had not merged. Because there are some Progressive Conservatives that I liked. But some of the Alliancers are very right wing and quite honestly frighten me a bit.

On a slightly funny note.. I was watching the news today and they were interviewing Harper. Does anyone else think it looks like he wears eyeliner?

This seems like news worthy of better than page 14 in today's New York Times.

amazing.

i thought the early election would backfire on the conservatives, but today's ipsosreid poll shows the liberals and conservatives are tied at 31 per cent each.

meaning the conservatives have gain substantial ground in the last week.

and what did stephen harper do today, in his first day campaigning fo the election?

brought up...UNPROVOKED the fact that he would bring up the whole gay marriage issue all over again as soon as he were elected prime minister.

give it UP already.

does the supreme court of canada ruling mean nothing to him?



i'm pissed because this entire election campaign is going to be a pedantic mud-slinging pissing contest. forget the issues, forget policy, forget progress of any sort. corruption, scandal, culture of entitlement, blah blah blah. and now this. lovely.

sadly, many of us are just going to be voting against steven harper, despite the fact that the alternatives aren't so shit hot either.

He is honestly too stupid for words.

The Liberals are immediately going to start running the same old "Harper = Bush = boogeyman" ads. As well they should. If he is this idiotic, he doesn't deserve anything but a boot in the ass.
