If I could vote, it would definitely be strategically to make sure a Conservative seat isn't won in my riding. Unless it was NDP which is possibly even worse

I don't think that will ever happen. There's the risk of hacking and no way to verify whether or not a vote was entered without undue influence. ie gun to the head

Same here. I hope Trudeau has enough will power to push his agenda if he does voted. What I am afraid is his inexperience may make him end up like Obama.

Another thought comes to mind is how the Conservative Party (the historically more pro-giant corporation and most racist party out of the bunch) would have had an immigration policy that would have made Canada a lot of money while Canadian Citizens benefit since China became a member of the WTO (clearly, this is not the case). I'm afraid how much worst the Liberals may do in this department.

Can a mod make a poll in this thread with the different parties to see who everyone voted for? I'm very curious as to what people have been voting especially since we are a younger crowd.

Although it might not be relevent to being PM, let's not forget Trudeau's a bit of a badass.

Yeah I can't see any party supporting that they would be paranoid of hacks. A worthy read below.

I only voted for the party that has the most chance to take out a conservative majority, and didn't have dirt on them from last election. Otherwise, it would have been green.

As a centre-left social liberal I would be thrilled if Trudeau ended up like Obama. Obama ain't perfect but his ability to work within a dysfunctional political system to get health care passed, to restart the economy and find a tenable place for the US in the world is going to be something historians will talk about in positive terms for a long time. He's found the balance between short term and long term thinking - health care will pay off for Americans for a long time and tilt the tables towards the Democrats over the years.

Long-term expats don't have right to vote in federal elections, court rules - Politics - CBC News

This rule was was found to violate the charter, that ruling was overturned this year...

Good to see so many Canadians united with one common goal to get harper out. It;s like Canada VS US in any sport.

Here's an interesting story. Trudeau, Muclair, and May had all done interviews with Global National News. Harper reneged at the last minute but would do Global Local interviews but to only questions he wanted to be asked.

I was there last night around 6pm. Second person in line. Was talking to the lady at the door and she mentioned that later in the evening is probably better in terms of line ups.

Par for the course. Cons are in hiding because they know when they open there mouths they lose votes. Local con candidates are doing the same thing. Canceling events missing debates.

This is an interesting election. My dad, who has historically voted NDP both provincially and federally as well as municipally (based on their policies and positions), will be casting a vote as he perceives "strategically" on Monday. That vote will be for the Liberals.

He thinks the Liberal party has the best chance to take power and dethrone the Conservatives.

I kind of agree with that notion as well. I normally like to pick something that is tried and true, but I think change can be good also. While Trudeau does not have the political experience, he represents something new and fresh. Time will tell if he does win how effective his government will be if they win, but I'm willing to take that risk.
