Backstage Manager(inactive) BS: Federal election (Canada) (135* d) RE: BS: Federal election (Canada) 16 Jun 04

Damn!!! Its too bad he's a separtist and only running candidates in Quebec, I've been watching the debates and I'd vote for Duceppe for Prime Minister over any of the other candidates. He's sharp, he sticks to the point and he's head and shoulders above the others. Why can't the other Parties find a leader of that calibre with a federalist viewpoint?

Duceppe was able to be the way he was in the debates because he's not running for PM. He already knew that he had a lock on the vast majority of Quebec ridings, and he was the only francophone, thus his "winning" performance in the French debate. And for the English debate, he knew he had nothing to lose and nothing to gain, so he was exempt from the pressure faced by the other leaders.

As for the overall calibre of the leaders, we're a long way from the days when Trudeau faced off against the likes of Stanfield, Douglas and Lewis.
