“Before you get too triumphalist, Liberals, I'm a Brandon-Souris NDPer. I loaned the Liberals my vote. It was strategic. I'll be voting NDP in the general.”

“Everyone needs to consider strategic voting. It is the only way to undermine the inherently unfair First Past the Post voting system that all three major parties seem to be supporting.”

“the most dangerous thing for Harper would be for his caucus to lose their fear of him. we've seen some cracks already, here's hoping that the dam breaks.”

“If they keep talking about job creation, all it will do is underscore the fact that, after 6 yrs of Con gov't, the economy is still terrible and they haven't put Cdns back to work.”

“They have taken away the good full time jobs and replaced them with minimum wage part time jobs! If part time jobs were not included in unemployment the rate of unemployment would be much higher. You can't live on part time minimum wage jobs.”

“The PM of a parliamentary democracy visits the Queen (or, as in the case of Canada, the vice-regal governor general) and says that the government is no longer working. then the PM asks the Queen/GG to dissolve the gov't. An election is immediately called thereafter. It's fairly efficient and good political drama.”

“Can the Queen do that?”

Dieter Zerressen on Oct 3, 2013 at 11:43:14

“True. Very few countries of our "Presidential" system of government and for obvious reasons - it doesn't work very well. I love when a Prime Minister has to go into the "pit" to defend his actions and his party's policies. I always chuckle when envisioning GW Bush before Congress trying to explain Iraq and WMDs. Our Presidents are isolated in the White House and non of the leadership is forced to even talk to each other.”

“I agree, it should be okay to take someone's policy to task and ask more than 5 questions about it. If he doesn't go personal and just keeps questions to policy it could take time but may help remove the national distraction of the wind in Justin's hair and force the Liberals to state their ideas.”
