Cast my ballot tonight. From what the news is reporting, it looks like another Conservative government - in the least, a minority.
I don't like Harper. Not one bit. I don't think he has an economic policy, nor a foreign policy, nor any kind of leadership qualities. He's a smug little man, boring as all hell, with the personality and intelligence of a cheap, imitation neo-con Republican. His refusal to attend the Opening Ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, was an incredible disrespect to China and the Chinese people. His excuse that it was due to a scheduling conflict was absolute nonsense. Give me a break - get off your self-righteous platform. You, a Prime Minister of an internationally inferior and insignificant country calling China out on its own domestic issues? Give me a f*cking break. Ask the board of Bombardier what they think of China. Ask any of the Canadian energy companies that live and die by their business with China. Harper has absolutely no credibility to be talking about international issues, especially those that pertain to a country's internal affairs.
But what this country needs now is stability. I detest the man, but I hope he will provide that. Having a $300 million election every 2-3 years is not what a democracy should be about.
