Looking beyond just the horse race, here is Stephen Harper's bigger-picture game-plan / agenda:
1) Take majority control of the Senate.
2) Take majority control of the appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada.
3) Take majority control of the funding of political parties, riding associations, and candidates.
All of the above will be the case if Harper obtains a majority in this…Continue

Catch 22 candidate picks unchanged by NDP surge
“NDP moves into tie with Liberals”, screamed headlines in newspapers across the country.
The New Democrats and the Liberals were in a statistical tie moving into the last week of the May 2nd election campaign.
“These polls from…Continue

It all comes down to that age-old question: Does the end justify the means?
Right now, many Canadians are torn between their strong desire to nullify Stephen…Continue
In the Vancouver Quadra 2008 By-Election the Liberal candidate won by only 151 votes!!
Voters in the Vancouver Quadra riding should take note and vote (strategically) to defeat the Conservative candidate (eg vote Liberal)
I don't take comfort from various polling/vote intention results for Vancouver Quadra riding for 2011 election that indicate the Liberals have a wider lead. For example,…

Someone passed this on to me and it's such a colourful read, I thought I'd post it...Feelings run high down this way - like the winds.
The ferry scandal.
Well strike the headsails, and round her up! Finally, someone who gets the picture. Kudos to Derek Wells and the Liberal party re the ill advised and tragic sinking of the Yarmouth ferry. Yup folks it’s got a kind of familiar ring to it, “Ferry Scandal”. Don’t recall? Well I’ll freshen your memory. The NDP fast…

The Coalition "Debate": How Stupid Will It Get?By John Deverell
There is little more annoying than listening to the leaders of Canada’s two larger political parties opine on what the May 2 election result will mean for “democracy.”
Stephen Harper argues that, if the voting system confers a Parliamentary majority or large minority on him and the Conservative party, then they will…Continue
1) Although the Harper Conservatives campaigned on Transparency, the Speaker of the House of Commons had to rule three times that “the Harper government” appeared to breach parliamentary privilege. For the first time in Canadian history, the government was found in contempt of Parliament.
2) The Information Commissioner said “the Harper government” was the least transparent when it came to Access to Information requests.…Continue

The situation in this election is far different from the one in 2008.
Voting strategically doesn't take strong changing factors into consideration; rather, it takes a past and frozen moment in time, deciding from myriad conditions that no longer apply.
Here are some major changes affecting South Shore - St. Margarets that are going to make a big difference !

Nobody plays divide-and-conquer more relentlessly than Stephen Harper. The PM this week is selling himself as “Captain Canada,” the only guy to squelch a Quebec separatist revival.
This is the same Stephen Harper who, not long ago, was urging Albertans to build a firewall between Tar Sands Central and the rest of Canada. Then he was…

Thank you for your message outlining your desire to have the Auditor
report on the G8/G20 meetings made public before Election Day.
I fully agree that Canadians have a right to know what is in the report
2. We have already seen at least two leaks to the media of
draft versions. Therefore, we think that it is in the best
interests of all
parties involved to clear the air, and only making…
