Here we go again...Canadian Elections

Martin, you've really made a mess of things...you had an assured majority and managed to fuck up barely holding on to power and of course now people are even more disillusioned with the libs. We're likely going to the polls by late May/early June it seems. The NDP support in Ontario is growing which'll probably mean more seats for the Conservatives here and more seats for the Bloc in Quebec. The Conservatives will come to power, overturn same-sex marriage legislation, align our foreign policy with Bush's (jump into Star Wars even) and try to privatise Health Care...yay. Though I'm pretty sure it'll be a Conservative minority with us heading into the polls yet again in a year

sorry that came off all wrong...ndp support increase in Ontario = more tory seats, less lib support in Quebec = more bloc seats

there is no way that the overturning of the same sex marriage will go through. they tried to do it last week and the libs, ndp and bloq all voted no. There is no way the bloq would agree to that.

If some people have the money and want to go to a private hospital, I don't see why they couldn't. People talk about a 2 speed health care or whatever, but at the moment, there's only one - a very slow speed.

The aspect I don't like about Harper is that he supports the foreign and military policies of Bush. That, and he probably doesn't care much about environment. But for the rest, I'm not overly worried or anything. If the USA can survive with Bush, we'll survive with Harper.
Actually, I do tend to favour the Republicans in the States, however, this is not a blind endorsement of eveything that Bush stands for or his policies, Plus, I seperate the States from Canada, What is good for the States does not work so well in Canada and, Stephen Harper just plain scares the hell out of me. I fear what he will do is basically what Mike Harris did in Ontario and Mike Harris just screwed things up.

But I really think CDN's are afriad of Harper. This is really relfected in the fact the Liberals still have 27% support even through this huge scandal. I really feel like we are in deja vu all over again with last year and I hope again the Liberals will pull through.

But if they pull through that is like saying "We know that you are evil, crooked bastards and we don't care! Stel from us! Screw us! We don't care!"
