I dunno, but I can tell you what happens when we mix up corporatism with capitalism. Three months after receiving a "Job-Creation Tax Cut" of 1%, Cenovus cuts 150 million out of the capital budget (oppsy, less jobs) and increases the dividend by 25%.

I'm really glad we've devolped a good relationship all these years Drip Torch. Just cuz we never met, doesn't mean nothin'.
May the best candidate win. Or Moose, because right now I'd vote for the moose who wins the locking horns contest in the wilderness.

I'm good with the moose - any moose, only stipulation is it can't have Rebel media doing the communications. After watching 30 seconds of that Muppet Beaker stalking Greta in the hotel last night, I swear I'll never click anything rebel, ever again.

I went to the see the doctor early on in this election campaign. Just couldn't get excited and I was concerned I might be suffering from electile dysfunction. Turns out there is no pill to cure this. Too bad too, cause I really do have rocking medical coverage and it would be nice to get some use out of it.

So in the end, I took Frisk's advice and I now pour beer on my cornflakes in the morning.

This too shall pass - right?

Elections are rather like On Line Dating or shopping in thrift stores, you pick the least smelly one :)

Far easier than you can imagine I'm sure, but I highly recommend it. You'd be surprised how much your outlook will change once you weed out the propaganda arm of the current CAPP/CPC party. Besides, the freak show hasn't been the same since they ditched the Mick Jagger in drag character.

We should not be surprised that people who have given up mainstream news (Global, CTV) for internet sources that reinforce already extremist ideas (left or right) will have extremist viewpoints. This motivation to seek out information that confirms our bias rather than challenging ourselves has contributed to the very dangerous levels of divisiveness and polarization that we now observe in our society (expressed mainly on the internet). I doubt that this has been accidental and we can only guess the end game. However, the one conclusion we could safely hypothesize would be that our democratic system is slowly and patiently, but very deliberately and effectively being attacked. Disinformation (along with the devaluing of education and critical thought) could be one of the greatest threats facing our democracies right now. Better to seek truth than reinforcement.

That's unfortunate and I do know the feeling. I'm lucky, I have a candidate that I can support and he's got a track record he can stand on.

I'm not going to tell you how to vote, but I will say I did feel what you're expressing. I found the early stages of this campaign really disappointing. The campaign seems to be "I'm not him" and "I know I should have done better, but I'm not him.

Dismal really.

And then, almost as if by magic - Hello Jagmeet Singh

Again, not telling you how to vote, but I know I'm loving the positive energy and new ideas. He's going to Ottawa, no doubt about that, and I'm looking forward to seeing who he takes with him.

About an hour ago in Vancouver

I hope you find something to vote for. If not a candidate or a leader, go with your values and your vision for the future. I know that worked for me.

I’m just outside his riding. Would love to be able to vote for him.

I'm heading out to the #UpRiSingh soon. The other half is telling me we have to get there early and I'm going to get a beating if we end up in the overflow rooms.

Seems to be a show that's gaining in popularity.
