I aupport the NL first party, but they are not in my riding, so I will probably spoil the ballot.

As much as I dont like harper, the tories are the only party that knows anything about defenc,e and who is willing to beef up the military, not put it into anorexia

Of course spoiling your ballot is your right. However, many would say by doing so you abrogate your right to have a say, bitch about the outcome or complain about what happens after the election. Just a thought.

Even with Justin being 45ish, thats still pretty young for PM.
And I should add, its a generalized statement to say that young voters are just young voters. Alot of us really do know whats going on in the news, and if those who don't, don't care enough to vote at all (which is sad, really, but it happens)
I'm not gonna get into a big war here, I think we might have very different opinions. I have my points, as you have yours, and in the future my mind might change, but right now I think it's great that Justin is looking to pursue a career in politics. I'm not saying artists are more important than medical, military, or what have you, I believe that they do deserve a chance too.
ANYway...
As for this year (like I stated before) I will likely vote for Harper.

In the case of Trudeaus running. Like father, like son. So I hope that any spawn of PET's never get's an opportunity to finish the job of ruining Canada that his father started. :threat:

"like father like son" I do kind of agree, especially if Bush is any example...
I still don't agree with the liberals carbon tax plan, so there are a few things I disagree with as far as Trudeau.

::) - Oh please.....

Dear crystalrh,

Cut the Bush anti US crap now. Anyone in that chair regardless of party lines is in the hot seat, especially when fighting a war.

If you think he went to war in Iraq over his Dad and an attempted assasination plot by Saddam, you'll beleive all that 9-11 conspiracy crap.

Your comprehension of reality is showing.

I reckon you'll vote Liberal.

KINDLY stick to the topic at hand please, and without bringing in this all too often heard anti US propaganda.

Thanking you in advance.

Surely the businesses must stand on their own, but what about schools? If we had more successful schools like the Vancouver Film School, artists could take advantage of that instead of going south of the border to go to a decent arts school. Before I decided I wanted to join the CF, I wanted to be a musician, but Canada has really nothing to offer, and its tough for a Canadian artist to really pursue a strong career.
And what I'm saying about his youth... Is he appeals to young voters right now (which he'll try and hold on to), future voters included. Even in a few years he'll still be young (as of now he's 36).


You want someone with a family background, someone who's dad was PM, what about Ben Mulroney.  It actually talks artists everyday in his line of work.  Do think he would be good a PM?  Or is it you just just think Justin genes are better?  Both families are hung up on the charter and come from Quebec.. what more could ask for?

You queried why I don't vote upon party lines earlier..... You've just answered your own question as far as I am personally concerned.

I wasn't about to get anywhere close into US politics. I was just using him as an example. If you read my posts before, I've already mentioned (more than once) I would not be voting Liberal. I too, am from Saskatchewan (You've mentioned you are in several posts), and don't want much of what the liberals have to offer right now.
And no, I'm not a believer of all that "9-11 conspiracy crap"
I didn't mean to offend anyone, and my post wasn't anything like what you made it to be.

That they are also lawyers from Quebec ... we need more of those.

Regarding art - are we speaking about art or a manufactured culture with a Canada logo in the ending credits? Art is created every day regardless of national boundaries and so long as it is created it shouldn't matter where it comes from - what we all want is something to enjoy.  Some of the best art has been (and will continue to be) created by the 'starving artists' of the world as opposed to government grants. (and potential content constraints that come with such an arrangement)  I'd prefer the art I see be personal, from the heart and raw. Support and grants make me leary of the direction of the piece and can manifest towards more of a light propaganda.

Art isn't a road to stardom and fame. Most of them fail. If you have to rely on the man to get by then I'd find it necessary to invoke the wisdom of Heinlein: "A government sponsored artist is an incompetent whore"

Your words not mine, and I was being polite, I don't make things to be!

If you want to have a go at me, use the PM, like I said please stick to the topic at hand.

A polite, informative and friendly PM is inbound.

Mods please delete posts 50, 52 and 53, as they are a waste of bandwidth (that is if you see fit to :) ).

Thanks,

Wes

This is my first time voting for a PM... I'm really not too sure who I want to vote for yet. If Justin Trudeau was running, I'd be 100% sure I would vote for him. I heard he was running for something, not sure what though.
Here's the way I see it:
Stephen Harper did an OK job as PM.  He was certainly not outstanding, but he didn't mess up like Paul Martin.
It seems that although the Torries did a not bad of a job at making a minority government work, it IS time for a majority. (Which most likely rules out the NDP)
I am totally neutral, as I'm rather new to this whole voting thing, but I wouldn't want Stephane Dion as our leader. Especially living in Saskatchewan! He's admitted that Sask. would be one of the hardest hit provinces with his "carbon tax".

Overall, no one is standing out in my eyes. I'm not really seeing anything extraordinary, but it's likely I'll vote conservative.

Perhaps you would have a better idea of who to vote for if you laid out the principles that drive your life and decision making, then compared it to the political parties actual record(s) of achievement. (I do not say their platforms for the simple reason that most parties tend to be a bit...."flexible"......with what they promise). While it is true the NDP don't have a Federal record, you can look at their record in Ontario or Saskatchewan (in fact, look at the marked contrast between Sask's economy and prospects today under the Saskatchewan Party vs decades of NDP rule [yes, I'm partisan  >:D]) . The Green party has no record to fall back on, but since their policies seem to be replicated amongst the other parties (and their leader has essentially called for their supporters to engage in strategic voting rather than support the Green Party); I suggest they can be discounted for now.

As for young Trudeau, I had the misfortune to sit through an uninspiring speech he gave, and have seen him repeat many socialist tropes in press interviews (before the election and while campaigning as a Liberal), so if he were running in my riding, I would not cast a ballot for him.

Well I have finally decided who to vote for.....


I detest all of the party leaders, and the local candidates do not impress me either......


I have decided to vote for the one with the most signs in the riding....


Therefore I'm voting for the "For Sale" Party.

I'm not voting for the Liberals, will most likely vote Conservative. That being said, if Harper wins a majority I hope he changes the Afghanistan Missions end date of 2011 since it seems like that might be pulling out before the job is done. Something he initially was against.

Liberals are soft on crime ( especialy youth crime) so that certainly explains your vote.
