Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s office confirmed that Canada will have an election October 14. Having another election has been looming over Canadians’ heads for a while now, while both parties figure out if it’s the right time or not, I figure. However, this will be intriguing, as I’m uncertain if Canadians like or dislike the current government enough to make alterations.
Personally, I’m not sure if the Liberal’s Stephane Dion would be a good PM. In fact, I’m having awful doubts about our Liberal party for a long time now. And while I’m just ideologically against backing the PC party because of their social right wing-nutism, I am not in hate with Harper. I do hope that the New Democrat Party have a fighting chance this time around, but in all honesty, this is an election between the PCs and the Liberals.
The worse that could happen is that the PCs win a majority this time around because of how seemingly tame he’s been while he’s been in power in a minority government, and Mr. Harper, unencumbered by all those Liberals taking up seats in his house, lets his true colours show. We’ll have to see in October.
I know Canadian politics are so much more drier than the politics in the states right now, but we have to get informed and vote.
