Two More Days of Election Nastiness
Given the so-called importance of this election in Canada, as a voter, I have been unimpressed. Harper had a chance to be different, to be inspiring, instead he has pledged to spend billions of dollars on various programs (so much for fiscal conservatism) and cutting the "hated" GST. Martin has been ineffective on the campaign trail - he made most of his promises before the election. The Liberal party was in trouble when Buzz Hargrove and the unions threw their support behind Martin - I'm sure that Jack Layton was happy about that. Now, with two days left, the politicians are digging deep to throw the insults at each other and scare the electorate into fearing the other candidates. How inspiring.
