In very simple terms, I don't believe any of that is going to happen. The Carbon tax has been in place for almost 3 years and employment growth is growing. Emissions growth is slowing.So in very simple terms, it doesn't matter to you if the economy goes to hell in a hand basket, your neighbour is unemployed and the breadline extends clear around the block as long as we have reached this decision via consensus. Wow
I was hoping the PPC would be the fiscally conservative party with socially liberal views.
It was a shame that it turned into the anti immigration, anti foreigner fringe party it did, glad it fizzled out the way it did.

Oh I did, with the same reasoning in mind as for why I did in 2021.In 2019 you considered them anti-immigration, anti-foreigner and socially far-right but you must have voted for them, since you voted twice for the PPC.

Regardless, I didn't remember posting that in 2019. Good catch. As it stands, their political views are the polar opposite of mine. I still don't think it matters what I think of them.
I love the Canadian voter mentality. Instead of voting for the party they think will be best for the country, they will vote anyone to deny the party they dislike, the win. It's no wonder our system is such an absolute farce. It's not strategic voting, it's pure, ignorant, personal spitefulness and selfishness. And the whole country is affected and weighed down by the stupidity of the exercise.Doing to the CPC what the NDP and Greens and to some extent the bloc do the the LPC.
People can vote any way they want. Welcome to the free world. Vote for, vote against, vote strategic, etc etc.
No one has a say or is right about how anyone decides to vote.
I suspect many are offended because people didn’t vote their way. Get over it.
Ignorance is not accepting that someone might actually vote differently than you for a variety of reasons.
