Canadian election tip

Really, what’s left to say? It’s our third federal election in four years. The right-wing Conservative minority government sucks. The spineless Liberal “opposition” sucks. And Jack Layton still makes me want to scream at my TV set.
As I see it, there are only two options: to spoil your ballot, or to support an idea that is starting to gain traction here and here: a Liberal-NDP coalition. With four parties to the left of the Conservatives splitting the vote, it may be the only way to avoid a Conservative majority. And who knows? We might even get some cool new social programs out of the deal.
As for me, I’m really hoping that squeegee punk runs again.
