Tonight was the most important debate of the federal election campaign, and what a tedious affair it was… but holy crap, Paul Martin promised to get rid of the notwithstanding clause! Okay, it was probably a desperate strategy, but it’s almost enough to make me vote liberal. Almost – I’m still angry at the whole entrenched corruption thing and kickback scheme involving hundreds of millions of dollars… Notwithstanding clause, what a stupid thing. I’m glad someone’s talking about getting rid of it even if it’s not likely to happen.
I’m (more or less) an NDP voter but Layton’s endless commercial on tonight’s debate nearly put me to sleep. I love watching Gilles Duceppe argue because he’s the only one who seems logical, coherent, intelligent, forceful on policy without making stupid personal attacks, fun to watch(!), etc, etc. I’d probably vote for him if he were running in my riding. But he’s not so the NDP it is. Or maybe the Green Party, not sure yet.
Vote for Rupinder! Er, if you’re in Mississauga, that is.
