Canadian election tip

September 8, 2008 § Leave a comment

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.
