11:14 am - Heading to the polls.
It's official!  Canada's heading to the polls on October 14th


I'd be a lot more enthused if there was actually a party that I can have even just the tiniest bit of hope in in the running, but alas, they all look like a bunch of squabblers once again, just like they did back in the 2006 elections.  It'll most likely be another Conservative or Liberal minority depending on how the wind blows that day. 

You know, I think Canadians should be thanking our lucky stars that our country's developed and stable enough so that even when all the politicians ever do is petty bickering and self-promoting the country still doesn't collapse (or at least...not yet anyway, we can hold out for a few more years).  If this kind of government was in charge in any other country that was any less stable or developed it'd be massive chaos with uprisings and rebellions, coup d'etats and assassinations by this point.

Completely agree with your commentary. It's unfortunate that no real government will come out of this election (yet again), yet I can't help myself but hold on to the last glinting speck of hope that I have for the unthinkable to occur. I guess this means I have to get my absentee ballot lol (anyways, I'm glad I don't actually live in Quebec b/c the only real parties here are the English one (read: "Liberals") & the French one (read: "Bloc"). Take care!-James

Ah, the Bloc, you hear about how Duceppe wants Harper to enshrine that Quebec's a nation into the Canadian Constitution? XDDD I thought this whole Quebec separatist thing was way over, guess not. There was a letter to the editor in the school newspaper today with a guy bitching about some chick at a football game during 101 week who was leading some cheers was wearing a "I SUPPORT QUEBEC SEPARATISM" shirt. Boy was this guy mad, lol, I found it interesting, we're quick to support separatism on other peoples' soils, but our own? No, never!!
