smirks and tears....an election is upon us

so must of you know, or i would hope that you know that the liberal government was toppled yesterday, and a new election is slated for jan 23. the london free press goes into much more details about the election then i will...but what bothers me the most is that government ideally is supposed to be about co-operation. perhaps i live in a fools world, but a miniority government should be built on this fact. our elected officials are supposed to be doing what is best for us, and forcing an election because you're pissed that you didn't win the last time, is not helping us. granted the liberals have a had a lot of problems, but the parties should be cooperating, to ensure that things get done for canadians instead of pumping up their own ego. in the pic above you can see the smirk on harper's face....i find that to be so unprofessional and petty....that i could not imagine that man as prime minister of our country. thank god i'll be able to vote before i leave....and chances are we'll have another miniority government. but another concern is that people barely vote in summer elections, what is going to happen in the winter? i can only imagine :s

Hear hear. It's proof the Conservatives don't care about our country. Of course, there are cogent arguments that the Liberals don't either.

The worst thing the Conservatives have going for them though is Stephen Harper. I'm religious, but I could care less if two dudes have sex. The world has bigger fish to fry.

ok agreed...but let me amend my statement...harper is the worst thing in canada....i would almost prefer stockwell day to harper...just for the pure comedic value of it all....but to have him running our country scares me...its like inviting george w bush's cousin to run the country

This blows. I just want the Liberals to have the clear majority again, so I can go back to voting for the Green Party and not feel obligated to vote Liberal just so the Conservatives don't ruin the country. Ruining countries is bad. Yup.
