Canada Votes

Canadians are in the process of electing a new government. I thought this piece by our The Senator, a resident of our building, was a bit interesting. Perhaps not his best writing, but he does make some good points.

Canadians, as you vote, remember how appalling the former conservative government under Stephen Harper was.

  1. Harper was a shocker and Trudeau seems so young and progressive. I cannot imagine Canada going over to the Dark Side :(

    1. Hels, it would be a terrible result. It seems like Trudeau might have a minority government.

  2. I had to hold my nose as I voted today but I know what I needed and we'll see when BC's votes are counted later on tonight. Newfoundland will be first as we are on the edge of the Atlantic on a different time zone (did you know that?) we are oh so proud of our different time zone. :D

    1. WWW, I assumed Canada had about three time zones, but I don't actually know. I assume BC would be fairly pro Liberal.

  3. He does indeed make some fair points.

  5. In politics it seems when the opposition can't find anything wrong with the policies they dig up what they can to try to destroy the person. Good article.

    1. Cheryl, so true. It is all about the person now, not as much as policies.
