Here in Nova Scotia, I'm not sure who to vote for, either.
Looking at it from a local perspective, my MP candidates are as follows:
Liberal: The son of a former premier who was convicted a few years ago of sexually assaulting former coworkers (the premier, not the son who is running now).
NDP: A popular local comedian, who has never worked in any business or government, whose experience consists of stand-up comedy and emceeing weddings and such.
Conservative/Reform/Whatever they are calling themselves now: A guy who knocked on doors in my neighbourhood to talk to people about his campaign, and who commented to my husband that, "There seem to be an awful lot of 'foreigners' in this neighbourhood -- does that affect our property value?" :uhoh21:
So you can see that we are not in a good situation here, at least locally!
I feel I need to vote, that it is my responsibility as a Canadian; but I just feel like there aren't many viable choices. I am kind of leaning towards NDP, not because I think they'd actually get voted into power, but because I think they'd make a good opposition party, with their social agendas. The Conservative/Reform party scares the heck out of me -- Stephen Harper is proposing to further privatize health care, taking us back 50 years and making it so only rich people can afford to go to the doctor. The Liberals...well, as a previous poster said, they have been in power the majority of the past 37 years and haven't exactly done a great job.
I don't know...I like the previous poster's suggestion of us forming a nurse-led party.
