I am listening to 630 CHED and just heard the vote reach 171 in favor of the motion, which means the Liberal government in Canada has fallen. Actually, I have been listening for a couple of hours now, and there seems to be a few common refrains:
- The coming election will be the dirtiest ever.
- Southern Ontario will be the main battleground.
- Canadians have lost faith in the political process in general.
- All parties were hurt by Adscam.
You might recall that I voted for the Liberals in the last election. It’s pretty safe to say that I won’t be voting for them again this time around. That being said however, I don’t know who I will vote for. I don’t feel as though there is a political party that really represents me. I don’t feel as though any of the party leaders are really intriguing.
And perhaps worst of all, I don’t feel as though the coming election campaigns will be able to change that.
