LOL oh man why do I find that so very very very funny of a statement to be coming out of his mouth?

http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/breakingnews/Ignatieff-demands-answers-on-EI_-finances-to-avoid-election.html

so lets get this straight the NDP and bloq before even reading the report completely, before taking the time to consider options and impact on the country have just said outright.. nope we dont support it. ( ever thought maybe to talk to the voters? nah.. )


and iggy has said... SPEND MORE WHY IS THE DEFECIT SO HIGH...SPEND MORE!!..and I demand transparency but I wont answer questions about my past or future!...

frick I want a new election just so that it can be over and done with. oh wait... never mind.. just going to be another minority government again.

An election might be worth while if Iggy were to lose his seat and the NDP get no seats at all!

That won't happen me thinks. Just a majority though will put Iggy and Jack in their places. But Canadians will hold Harper responsible for the economy and the deficit and other related evils because assholes like Iggy and Jack open their mouths.

Aren't the Liberals tied with the Conservatives in the polls currently? Probably just another minority government Sad

Liberals are actually ahead by a few points... hmmm.. wonder what Iggy thinks he will accomplish ( besides making Dion the only Liberal leader who has never been PM ).

Some think Harper is the idiot , also ? The last I heard the Liberals are back on top in the 911 area code the one that counts, Toronto area .

Harper would probably have a majority right now if he had let them trigger an election last fall. Now.. no way its going to be anything but another minority, just real hard to say for whom.. probably Liberals though now that Dion and his Insane Green plan are gone. ( most importantly now that Dion himself is gone)

Yes that is true but Harper has also lost all support in Quebec , due to his own stupidity.

Does anyone think that an election changing one minority government for another will be of any value? Seems we'll be in exactly the same position except that Iggy will be our PM. While indeed not Dion he is just as annoying.

This would be a complete waste of dearly needed dollars.

You seem convinced he would not get a majority. Why

Because very little has changed for the populace. Unless the greens walk away completely ( extremely doubtful) the Libs will only be picking up a couple of seats here and there., MAybe not even enough to being the leading minority

Why?

The Liberals have shown Canadians nothing in three years in opposition. Except maybe an uncanny ability to elect (?) leaders that seem to polarize Canadians.

Further, many years that included several disastrous mistakes and outright fraud while in power, will not inspire Canadians to vote for a majority Liberal government.

Despite the worst recession in a few generations Canada is sailing in relatively calm waters. Certainly the recession is not this government's fault however it is in no small measure their handling of the economy locally and the image Canada presents globally that helps us stay the course.

Your turn. Tell us why the Liberals should be voted in to replace Harper and his gang?

Manitoba is doing quite well during the recession. Maybe we should all vote NDP federally.

If Iggy is so demanding of the people of Canada to spend more needless $$$$$ on an election, maybe we should be just as demanding back and say pay for the election yourself out of your election campaign funds. If he wants to fix the economy, does he not think that calling an election is going to make it worse than it already is????????????? Typical silly servant, doesn't give a sh!t about where the money is coming from, just as long as it is in his/her best interest. Love the commercial, "just in it for himself".
Instead of prolonging the regeneration of this country's economy by calling an election, work with the existing government to get it going now and then once Canada is back on track maybe something more can be done.
And I don't vote on party lines, I vote for the candidate who will best serve my community regardless of party. I an not an NDP supporter, nor am I a Liberal or Conservative supporter. Tell me/show me what you can do and you will get my vote.

Well the well has gone dry for advertiser/communictions firms now that the Ehealth scandal broke, so the liberals have to do something to get more money flowing for those two industries seeing as how they are their favorite ones Smile

some days I wish we could make that law.

maybe somehow have an extra check box at the voting station..

Are you voting for a party, or a platform ?
Those who select party get a small zap or an extra $500 taken out of their pocket.

Not sure if they should but I really do not believe they will force the election , since the meetings today between the leaders. I don,t believe the deal with GM was that well thought out , and will come back to haunt Harper.

That may well be true but it is absolutely impossible to judge given the extremeness of that situation.

See, if the government's did nothing then one could judge. They die or they survive. By doing something, unless they die anyway, there really is no way of determining what might have have happened otherwise.
