Canadian Elections

Recommended Posts

Tonight is voting night. However, I mailed my vote last Tuesday. I've pretty much been expecting that this country is going to go through its next phase of nightmarish conservatism, and then be scared straight for a couple of decades.

However, I can't speak of any elections without saying that we need a transferrable voting system, where people vote for their #1, #2, #3 preferred candidates. This vote-splitting needs to end.

I just came back from voting. I think the Conservative will win since the Liberals have decreased in popularity and I don't people outside my province will vote for the Bloc Québéquois. Oh well... I just hope he doesn't fuck the country.

I didn't vote. I'm not even really sure what lies they are using to get people to vote for them this time.

If anything, I would vote for the Green Party.

It's been really quiet over the past hour. However, things will come flooding in right this very minute and will change significantly in the next half hour.

And as expected, the Bloc took almost everything in our beloved french province. Can we say... SOVEREIGNTY? (Not that i care, even if i am a frog myself, but...)


Oh well, "Dubya" Harper didn't win, so it's all good...

And it's good to see that the conservatives don't have the most seats.

-Liberals
-Conservative
-New Democratic Party (ndp)
-Bloc Quebecois (what the frenchies vote for)
and the 'other' section, which include the green party among others.

Alas, I missed the voting due to timing issues, but there is always next year.
I am particularily happy with Jack Layton's (NDP) speech, and am glad the Liberals arent so powerful now. Maybe western interests will get *some* recognition now.

If only Preston Manning had stayed in, and the Reform party was still alive.... *sigh*
