What gave you any inclination it would be Mulcair vs Harper?
NDP has never been in power before, what made you think this was their year?

The NDP was literally leading in the polls for the first ~1/3 of the election campaign.

As for the John Oliver video, I liked the Hurricane Katrina reference with Myers and Kanye

Mainstreet Predicts a Liberal Majority Government

Quote:
October 18, 2015 (Toronto, ON) – With Election Day hours away, Mainstreet Research is publicly re-affirming its prediction of a Liberal Majority Government.

The original prediction was made on October 13th by Mainstreet Research President, Quito Maggi. Mainstreet remained in the field following the publication of its final poll on Saturday morning.

“Everything we have seen in the past week, including numbers from this weekend, points to a Liberal Majority,” said Maggi. “It’s always possible vote splits will mean the Liberals will fall just short, but based on our riding, regional and national work, a Liberal Majority government is the most likely outcome tomorrow night – in fact, we expect it.”

i think the issue isn't that people aren't voting, it's that they have no one to vote for.

who are you going to realistically vote for? two parties that will be fiscally irresponsible or inbred Harper and all the shit he brings along?

I even find it hard to accept that one is the "best of a bad bunch", voting for any of them would turn my skin

It'll be interesting to see if the polls are right, we've all seen it before with the Christy Clark BC Liberals trailing behind in polls only to win and in the UK with David Cameron's Conservatives trailing far behind in polls only to win as well.

"Best of a bad bunch" is infinitely better than what much of the rest of the world has. There are people who are spending their lives fighting to have at least that.

Go vote!

It would be interesting to see what the polls would be like on other local non car forums.

I guess we could just wait 10 hours

...look, as much as people want to rag on Harper, even if he wins, life in Canada is still pretty awesome. It's not like Harper dropped mustard gas on us or something.

Are you aware of what goes on elsewhere in the world? Some people only have actually shitty choices or have a sham election or no election at all.

This would remain true regardless of who wins the election. Compared to the majority of the world, we have it pretty good here. But that doesn't make any of the candidates good at all. As 4444 says, we have:

1) a 10 year reigning tyrant with a Lego guy hairdo
2) a pretty boy with no experience in anything
3) an un-charismatic old fart that is clueless about anything outside of Quebec

More than any other federal elections I can remember, this one has to suck the most.

^seriously though why do physical looks have to be a factor for each candidate for you?
maybe you're just trying to be funny but can we at least be specific with the issues?

Unfortunately, many of the votes, particularly from women, are based on the appearance of the candidate, and not on policy.

good looks, charisma and being a strong speaker will connect with the audience one way or another.

OK, lemme rephrase this in terms that are more agreeable to you. In this election, we have the following candidates to choose from:

1) a 10 year reigning tyrant that has destroyed many of the fabrics that define Canada (eg. immigration, integrity, disgraced our parliament, voter suppression, respect for our natural resources and environment, anti-competition, etc.)

2) an inexperienced politician that has not been able to hold a steady career prior to joining politics, and only managed small time portfolios when he became active in politics

3) a leader that lacks observable leadership skills, cannot provide a convincing financial platform, and has repeatedly shown his ignorance on things outside Quebec

The candidates we have now almost make Stéphane Dion look more electable.

so we should just accept whatever shit we get just because 'it's alright here'?

don't give up, demand better. canada used to be A FUCK LOAD better, i demand it get back to what it was, strong, proud. that pride, i fear, is somewhat misplaced.

for the record, i would vote conservative, but it's not like i'd be excited about it, they just offend me the least (and most importantly, are the least bad financially for me personally)

In this current global economic situation, shouldn't the fiscal aspect of government trump all?

I'm not convinced now is the time for major fiscal change, despite how terrible a leader the majority feel Harper is.
