Naturally there's no way that the Liberal Party could be busy with election business, and can't be monitoring every Facebook page on the planet.

Indian Larry has stated several times that he intends to vote Green. And I voted Liberal in the last election. So it isn’t fair to say we’re allowing partisan bias to influence our assessment of the situation.

This page was misleading, and it was available for quite a long time. And the Liberal Party have to accept responsibility for this type of thing when it is done by one of their candidates, or one of their candidate’s campaign manager.

Local Party Associations are quite tight knit affairs, and I consider it very unlikely that the campaign manager was the only member aware of the existance of this particular website.

^^ Much speculation without anything to back it up from an anti Liberal with a bone to pick.

Perhaps you should call up the NDP and demand an investigation. :biggrin:

Many would say exactly the same about the NDP in a majority position.

And this will be an NDP without the moderating influence of Carole James.

True, but I don’t think we should write them off based on what they MIGHT do.

The fact is we kept them in the political wilderness for years, based on what they MIGHT do. Yet once in Government, they actually have done a fairly credible job (even GB admitted that). So I think they’ve earned the opportunity to continue governing for at least one more term.

If they screw up, I’ll be one of the first leading the charge to get rid of them. But I’m willing to let them prove that these past 3 years weren’t just a blip. It’ll be a pleasant change not having to “hold my nose” and vote for a Party we all know had become corrupt from being in power for so long.

Give them the benefit of the doubt when they've just proven their party is their biggest priority by calling an early election?

No, thanks.

Big, big difference between a minority and a majority government.

Good Luck to each and every one of them.

We need more indigenous people in Government, because the best way forward is us all working collaboratively to build our common future.
