Which one opposes TPP? I think you guys should vote for that one.

Harper has a slim chance of being PM even if the Conservatives form government so this makes this whole 'voting for a leader' all the more ridiculous.
#6
Harper because he's the only one that doesn't sound French or a woman

edit: Oh, Harper's a tory.

I vote for Kodos

I'm a big fan of Elizabeth May and the Green platform (and voted for my green mp). They obviously won't win but it would be nice to see them get a free more seats. Also, her being excluded from the leaders debates was fucked.

Hopefully the liberals win. Stephen Harper is a bad guy and the Conservatives are scary.

May opposes it most strongly, Mulcair opposes it I think, Trudeau wants to wait and see (conveniently the full text won't be available till after the election) and Harper supports it. Realistically the only way Canada goes into the tpp as it is now is if the Conservatives get a majority which is looking unlikely.

election fraud. every time. then pass a fair elections act which goes after voters rather than the politicians doing the election fraud. this is canada.
#10
so, if the conservatives make out with the most seats but fall short of a majority, do they prorogue parliament so they can hold a leadership convention to better position themselves in striking a supply-and-confidence deal with one of the other parties?

Ehhh even without Harper I don't think any of the other parties go for that.
#15
I vote Harper all the way. Trudeau doesn't have a clue and I generally disagree with their economic policies.

Canada has a government? All the Canadians spend so much time worried about American politics on this board I assumed they were just glomming on out of absence of their own.

I watched Trudeau's interview with VICE Canada and what he said sounded really sound.

A little tetchy on privacy laws, but it is complex (although Canada isn't much of a target for terrorism is it?)

And his answer on cannabis wasn't exactly clear, although I imagine he is pro legalisation eventually in Canada, especially when that will be an economic boost, but as he mentioned, it will be mostly provinces that decide, although come on now, federal action would do wonders.

He mentioned that only the 4th term year will be used for balancing the books. That would be the main worry for citizens.

Either way if Liberals get in then I will be super excited for Canada.

to a much greater extent than the other parties you really don't know what you're gonna get with a liberal government. it's important to keep in mind that past liberal governments really set the stage for the tories pulling out of the kyoto accord and attacking our charter rights with anti-terrorism legislation.

you have a leader who voted in favour of the anti-terrorism legislation but refuses to take a stance on whether it violates our charter rights. you have a party in support of electoral reform but a leader who voted down a bill mandating the government to follow through on reform recommendations without making his objections all that clear; they want to "consider ranked ballots", presumably because that would give them the greatest advantage.

overall, you have a party trying to position themselves between the ndp and tories on most issues without clearly defining their own position. they're a party of murky principles.

not just that. a lot of liberal ideas are good enough, but the basic ideology of liberal government isn't something i can really get behind (increase the influence of government, everything can be fixed by spending or new legislation, increase taxes to pay for it all). To his credit, Harper is an economist first and foremost and helped weather the recession storm with steps taken 2 years before it hit, but other than money, he's a terrible PM. My fear is Trudeau might be the exact opposite--decent enough as a PM and is a much-needed fresh face on the global scale, but he is probably going to burn through money and appears to have no real plan on recouping any of it. like many liberal governments before his, he'd probably leave office with Canada plunged into a fat deficit. And given the state of West Canada's economy, that's not really a viable option right now.

again though none of that will really affect me on a personal level on a daily basis so let's just get some #420blazeitfagt in office

In a parliamentary system, you don't truly elect a PM or government, regardless of how people like to dress it up. We elect members of parliament which itself is a body which oversees government. There are some drawbacks to this but at least we don't have a two-party system.
#34
OK thanks for clearing it up for me.

I totally understand what you're saying.

The more transparent you can be in telling the people what you're actually going to do in detail the better for trust.

Trudeau's stance on privacy rights isn't too different to most other liberals tbh. Nick Clegg in the UK has a similar record for his views on it.

In the UK the matter is slightly different as we don't actually have a legal right to privacy like the US and maybe Canada does.

The EU convention on human rights gives us some protection however there are many ways to override the protection. National security, public safety, crime, 'protecting the freedom of others', 'disorder' and my favourite 'ECONOMIC WELLBEING' lol.


Agree that Trudeau is being risky giving only 1 year to focus on the deficit. He could screw up future Libs campaigns if he leaves office in big debt.

the only real shitty thing about canadian politics is that you could really really like a candidate in your riding, but their party leader could be a total piece of shit and therefore you end up not voting for you want in your immediate vicinity to avoid having someone you hate on the national stage

It works the other way around too. A well implemented MMP system can alleviate this a bit.
