If you are unsure of what each Party’s platform is you can go to Elections Canada. Also, when voting do not forget to consider what issues the candidates in your riding are concerned with. This could impact your decision even more.
It’s no secret I’m NOT a fan of us having an election again! But, I still will be voting on Monday. (For my non-Canadian readers, our election schedule isn’t a formatted 4 year plan, it can occur before that point with a vote of non-confidence or can be has long as 5 years).
Politics along with religion and money are often considered taboo topics. Considering it’s been an ACHTUNG Week of blogs, I clearly have no problem discussing politics today. Interestingly, people may publicly acknowledge their position on religion or money (i.e. I am a Christian/Muslim/Buddhist/Atheist or whatever one’s faith is); however, when it comes to politics people are more likely to be cloaked… They secretly support their party but are not eager to share their position to others.
Perhaps, it’s because of the way we vote (secret ballets) that promote this need to be secretive in one’s party support. I’m not secretive. I might not shout it from a roof top, but if someone asks me who I am in support of I will answer The Conservative Party of Canada… Yes, I’m a Tory!
Ironically, I actually do find the other parties platform's curious… They are very alluring and attractive (versus the tell it as is Conservative platform) but wonder WHO and HOW things will be paid for that are offered… Well, actually I know how – More taxes…. Yep, defiantly not interested… I just wish party’s told the WHOLE truth when they are running for election. Not just the attractive side of things. Politics seems like the only job you can be hired for, fail to do what you promise AND still keep your job.
Voting on Monday,
