  •  It is hard to imagine them doing any worse (4.00)
    They should have won a minority last time around, but Harper scared the living shit out of Ontario and Atlantic Canada.
    •  Harper, the Evil Ken Doll (none)
      It's true. I lost count of how many people out here in Halifax voted strategically (Woulda gone NDP, but voted liberal instead just to keep Harper out).

      For the record, he doesn't scare the shit out of us, he pissed us off with his "Atlantic Canada is full of lazy welfare bums" bullshit. By rights that plastic faced pissant should be cod-smacked up side his impenetrable-haired head.

      Now, if Stronach had taken the reins, they'd have stood a chance. Still, it was obvious to anyone more than a casual observer that she was so much a "red tory" that she might as well have been a liberal (her conservatism extended purely to matters economic, and Martin has been nudging the party to the right in that arena while trying to maintain status quo on the social liberalism).

      McKay would have a better shot than Harper (or, gods forbid, Stockwell "Doris" Day!) but there's a lot of angry, angry people who remember with bitter resentment his betrayal.

      I suspect it'll end up a Lib minority again, unless the NDP make major in-roads into their turf, in which case the slimmest of CRAP (Canadian Reform Alliance Party) margins so's to be nearly unmanageable.

      •  I'm in Nova Scotia as well (none)
        He did piss us off with those comments and he has continued to ignore us because, in his eyes, we are of no use to him.
        •  He came by last summer (none)
          To flip burgers for a couple days. Porkchop went down to buddy buddy with him, and probably have a nice hearty laugh at how the metropolitan population in the province got fucked over on sunday shopping.

          I can't believe that we're the last place in north america where stores must be closed on sunday by law. :(
