Cluin BS: Wild Canadian Politics (387* d) RE: BS: Wild Canadian Politics 04 Dec 08


"You know, it's a party we are supposed to be electing in this system when we vote, not a "leader"."

Amen. That's the system we have.

Besides, I didn't like ANY of the leaders, almost least of all the leader of the party I did cast my vote. I voted for my local MP... the guy I trusted and wanted to represent me in Ottawa.

Or at least the lesser of all evils. What i hated about the last election was that I was being forced to vote AGAINST something rather than FOR something.

When I was watching the debates leading up to the election, especially to round-table one on TVO, I was disappointed that nobody asked the most pressing question I had: "If the result of this election is another minority government for the Conservatives, likes it looks to be (and turned out to be), are you people going to get to work with the government WE choose and stop dicking around playing partisan politics, or are we goung to back in this same situation in 2 years facing another election?"

Little did I think it woul;d be more like 2 months.
