probably because you chose the position of supporting quebec separation, but for different reasons that the PQers: at this point i wouldn't shred a tear if it chooses to go, but if Quebec continues to be a drag to the rest of the country and choose to leave, it's going to be a complete divorce. No miltary support, no financial support, and a donald trump style wall around the border even if it means a pay a couple extra dollars in taxes just to make a big FUCK YOU symbolic statement for being an ungrateful bitch for so long.

Got a call from the conservatives asking if I will support Steve. Asked If I could go to one of his rally's. Answer was no because I am not a conservative party member. Messed around with her for 4/5 minutes. She gave me the number for steves campaign office. Called the number and turns out if the fax line. Googled the area code and got this:

Aylan Kurdi is becoming an election issue now. Chris Alexander, Minister of Immigration, has returned to Ottawa.

The facts about their refugee application will reveal themselves in time, but it's hard to lay blame on anyone, despite the tragic story. Just sad all around.

Polls have the NDP at 31% Cons at 30% and Libs at 28%. Con voters are not going to change but NDP and Lib voters want Steve gone and are willing to do what ever it takes to get him out including switching parties.


In My riding the Greens NDP and Cons have signs out but the Lib candidate does not have a single sign out. It's like he's not even trying.

What does a damn sign have to do with anything? Wasted money and extra garbage. All the money for signs could be used to build a Syrian ark to nanaimo

New Democrats pledge $1.8B for seniors' health care - Politics - CBC News

Oh goodie, the NDP is promising to spend more money, meanwhile they are yet to provide any sort of plan for how they will cover the costs of their promises.

I can't wait for someone to draft up a complete list of all the spending the NDP has promised. NDP was quick to bitch about the length of the election, shame that didn't give them enough time to draft an actual spending plan - I don't know how any financially competent person could vote the the NDP after they have promised the moon.

And on a side note, people saying the cons cooked the books for the surplus... well this year probably should have been a deficit year given the price of Oil, but the GM sale bailed them out.



Yes they spent a lot of money, but every single country spent a lot of money to shield their people from the financial crisis. Any reasonable person can look at the trend and see we are headed to the land of the elusive surplus under the current gov.

Yeah but that surplus is a sham for the EI fund raid and the one time sale of GM assets.

Realistically we would have seen 3-4B deficit for 2014/2015.

Does anyone know what the "major" down falls for voting Liberal are?

I am likely voting liberal because their principles match mine, but if I had to flip, I would flip to Liberal.

Also, what are the major Harper screw ups? I don't think Harper has done such a terrible job. I feel a major reason why we're in a recession is because of the price of oil . He couldn't control that.

I likely will never vote for NDP until their budget looks more reasonable.

Thanks.

Wanna here something stupid. If you are a Canadian citizen but have not lived in Canada for 5 years you can't vote but you can run for office in any riding you want. You should be at least be able to vote for yourself. Thanx harper.

Uhg...moved to the "south burnaby" riding this year. Historically I've been a con for as long as I've been able to vote.

Spend some decent time on the weekend looking over my ridings candidates, the con candidate for my riding is "Grace Seear" uhg.. What a joke.

On her website there is a small, 2 paragraph bio, that's it. Ok..maybe I can dig up some actual platform info or priorities elsewhere. Go on her linked Facebook page, nothing but photo ops, and lunch pictures. If I have to spend fucking 20 minutes looking for your priorities, you've failed me as my candidate.

South burnaby is obviously an NDP stronghold but fuck, you can't even say what you stand for in point form?

I emailed them saying essentially the same thing and saying you've lost my vote, so we'll see what they reply with

i don't know if harper was directly responsible, but it did happen on his watch.
from rick mercer rants;

he talks about more too, stuff like; unanswered questions from MPs directed to the PM, the income splitting "tax break", abolishing benefits to veterans, non existent canada action plan which we're still seeing ads for, bills being passed in bulk packages.

i know this is just one person's view, but his show is on CBC and he's not siding with the government. this alone is enough for me to pause and listen. and i've heard enough to want harper the fuck out

Conservative candidates have no platform or thoughts of there own. They are just empty vessels for Harper. That is how he has always run the party.

Not saying this clip in particular is a hoax/fake/lie/... but just because the CBC is government owned does not mean it is not biased. From what i've noticed since I moved back here, CBC is against Harper, look at the analysis they do as the debates go on, the content (that I have viewed) is against Harper/Conservatives.

One thing I am concerned about the conservatives is the "FIPA canada-china agreement", what I understand is that this deal was made behind closed doors, and apparently it gives China power to sue Canada for any law they pass that may affect China's economy. I might be wrong, but this is what i get from that, if let's say our government decides to lower taxes (or any other kind of advantage) for factories, well they can't because that could affect China's economy. Which to me seems to make it very hard to create jobs in a situation like this. Also seems we have a similar deal with US (and Mexico I believe) but we can cancel the agreement withing a month or so, where as with China (FIPA) we have 28+ more years before we get out of it (32 year agreement). I am not certain of a positive side of such agreement unless it applies also to China

Do not quote me as this is information i have recently gathered, and continue to do so. Those who know more than me please correct me and inform us all

In the end I believe it's all about doing your own research and making your own mind, by taking every information you find with a grain of salt

LOL heard an ad on the radio this morning from the Conservatives basically saying "Remember the BC NDP from back in the day? Yeah...Mulcair is like that. Can't be trusted!"

Geez...why does every ad have to be a shit throwing contest? I'd love to see a politician just talk straight up about the issues and not pander to the lowest common denominator of idiots that just want to vote based on hair.

Honestly, my vote would go to whomever had the strongest stance on combating foreign investment and levelling the playing field (real estate-wise) for Canadian citizens. As well as taking a tougher stance on immigration fraud, PR residency requirements, and in general creating tougher borders.

Call it small-minded but I'm able to pay for school without taking on debt and/or borrowing from the bank of Mom & Dad, I am studying and doing a co-op in a field that is 90% likely to get me a good job after graduation, and the only real "struggle" I think I will face is buying a house in today's inflated market.

But it's hard to choose as they all seem pretty wishy-washy with their "promises" and policies. Harper says if he is re-elected, he will look into whether Canadians are being held at a disadvantage in the real estate market. My question is, why didn't he do this for the last 7 years....? If he started taking a firm stance on foreign investment back in 2006, a lot of the problems we face in Vancouver, Toronto, et al., would be nonexistent. Then there's the matter of the immigrant investor program, which to me was a huge fucking joke...
