Getting rid of Tories ...

Always a good idea, eh. And its time for you guys to think outside the box ... or your speck of dirt off the coast of Europe Time to think of the Canadian General Election coming up next Monday after a super long campaign. Looks like our tories are down to their core support: that would be the rich and white, middle-class males ... those puritanical assholes opposed to gay rights, abortion, and action on the environment. They also support "tough on crime" stuff (at a time when crime is at an all-time low, and dropping), and a nibbling away at health care. And a new twist in this election ... making the wearing of the niqab an issue. They also oppose higher taxes on the rich, medical marijuana, safe areas for IV drug users to shoot up, extra funding for daycare, higher pensions, smaller class sizes in our schools ... well, you get the picture. The other two parties (NDP ... that's Labour ... and the Liberals ... that's LibDems) and the majority of Canadian voters want the tories out. But with our, and your, idiotic "first past the post" system, the tories could still end up with the most seats, but short of a majority. In this case the other two parties seem determined that tory rule must go. A coalition government might be on the cards.

Now I know that Canadian politics is not every limey's cup of tea. But important issues are at stake. And I know that some of you have opinions on proportional voting, and what you guys call a "hung Parliament."

Another thing that might affect the voting is that the Blue Jays have a playoff game against KC on the day of the election. I suspect that if a British Election were to be held on the same day that England played in a World Cup Semi-Final that it would affect voting.

The Tories must go! It's a global thing, not just Canadian. One step at a time.

Oi! That frozen waste subsidiary of the USA only exists because of that inglorious speck of dirt

Unfortunately our outdated first past the post system, a totally unfair delineation of electoral boundaries and an excessive amount of MP’s coupled with an ingrained class system where a few imagine they have upward social mobility because they have worked all their lives have a few quid, think they are now middle class and vote tory.

The current 'party' system is heavily skewed and the Tories have to majorly screw up to be voted out.

Oh and football is a proper ‘world’ sport..whereas ice hockey is one of those Olympic things like figure skating and synchronised swimming that you backwood colonials have a decent shot of winning

I see that you have the correct attitude towards the Frogs.

Football ... esp. in the big leagues is a game for girls, played by wussies. Real men play hockey ... or Rugby ... officiated by refs who know what they are doing and rarely [deleted] up.

But, back to the point: The tories over here are now scraping the bottom of the barrel ... or digging in the slime underneath. Harper is cozzying up to Rob Ford ... you know, the fat, drunken, crack smoking, wife beater ... and his almost equally disgusting brother. And all because he desperately needs to win seats in Toronto. Harper's doing the politically limbo ... How low can you go?

I was reading something on the internet about Quebec Province. It was about non French people or immigrants who move there. They said the locals give them a hard time, even when they learned French. Is it really so bad?

i can tell you from personal experience that if you correct a so called french canadian and point out that they are not french they were born in canada so are canadian they get a bit hissy

used to love winding my pal up while we played online and raising the topic used to distract him so he was more easily killed


when he cried about it we would just say it was his french coming out

They were down two to zip in the last series, then won three in a row to win it. I'd like the Jays to win; but I'm a Cubbies fan ... those lovable losers from Wrigley Field. They haven't won a Series in 106 years ... cheering for the Cubs is a lot like supporting England And the Cubs are still in it.

But the election looks like it will go right down to the wire ... 20 % of the voters have already cast their ballots in the advance polls. And it could be settled, for once, in BC whose results won't be in until five and a half hours after Newfoundland ... it's a time zone thing, eh. All close ridings are up for grabs. There could be a big turn out for this election.

Re: Getting rid of Tories ...

Our election is tomorrow ... "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow." as whatshisface wrote. And it is not about politics which is, as the same guy said, is "a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury./Signifying nothing"; it's about who we are as a nation. Much more than you guys, we are a multicultural country. All of us ... and if you go back far enough, that includes First Nations ... are from somewhere else. Like me. And like Song, who runs the local convenience store. If the polls are correct, the centre-left Liberals will get the most seats; but what is most important to about 70% of Canadians, Harper has got to go.

And tonite, the Cubs face the Mets in NY. Getting rid of tories and seeing the Cubs in the Series ... 'tis an outcome devoutly to be wish'd.

Re: Getting rid of Tories ...

Well, I voted ... and I'm willing to bet that Turtle voted too ... it's going to be an exciting nite for those who take an interest in who forms the government. Looks like there is going to be a much larger turn out than last time. Polls show that at least seventy per cent of voters want Harper out ... he is as popular, except among die-hard tories, as a fart in a spacesuit.
