|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.
