SLM you are right there is no one party to satisfy ones needs, the Conservatives south of
the boarder are deeply influenced by the Social Conservative in the north there is influence
but not as strong. The Liberals are a drifting lot they have some idea of things but they
remind me of the Tories in the late eighties and early nineties. The NDP has gone beyond
being a movement they have become a political party sometimes dysfunctional but a party
now i am not opposed to them for being dysfunctional my God look at the Tories and the
Senate scandal. or the Liberals who went through the several leaders routine and settled
for a face over substance.
The NDP has in my view become more to the right but more negative in their attitudes to
progress. Used to be the NDP was on the cutting edge, Pensions, Medicare and family
allowance and so on, Those were achieved through minority governments.
I like the NDP when it has stable leadership. and sometimes the Tories when they are not
catering to the Reform element or the Wildrose nonsense in Alberta.
The Liberals are a collection of what the rest don't want but in a minority they do well.
If an election were held today I would not vote for the Conservatives nor the Greens and so
I have two choices NDP or the Liberals and I am watching closely. The reason the Tories
are out for me is they went to far dismantling the fabric of our programs for people. Treatment
of seniors and Vets and others. Hope that is a little of what you wanted in this topic
