The Battle Begins

One always is amused when political parties go head to head and it’s about time that the Liberal Party grew the guts to take on the Conservatives. While Stephen Harper throws a cheap shot at Michael Ignatieff’s property outside of Canada, the Liberal Party war room takes full advantage of Harper’s mischief in poor timing. Money seems to be the decider of power these days. It was money that brought the Conservatives to power and it’s the money that will throw them out. It just goes to show that maybe doing the job properly and fairly has more merits than defacing political opponents and calling costly – yet worthless – election campaigns and running away from parliament when things don’t go their way. That is no way to conduct a government and that is the definition of fear. Paul Martin was able to stare defeat in the face, but Stephen Harper runs from it because he knows that if he doesn’t hold on to his short rope, he will never be able to grab on again.

Every great empire falls eventually, Rome and Greece are great examples and their fall comes as a consequence of shaky leadership and divides in the power. Politicians are equivalent in their tactics but unique in their visions and it is a party with a vision that will win the heart and soul of the electorate… The American Dream has been working wonders for the Republicans.

The Liberals have unveiled their reminder for Canadians, one that Harper will come to fear, as political analysts praise the timing and Canadians never take lightly when politicians use tax payer’s dollars on ego trips.

The Liberal response to economic mismanagement

This attack ad is effective and is very much needed by the Liberals for if they ever dream of coming to power, they better start gaining a face soon.

On Monday, the longest campaign in modern history will come to a close and if current polls are any indication, Canada may be seeing a change in government after 9 years of Conservative rule under the leadership of Stephen Harper. Accountability was his calling card in 2006 and today, accountability may very well be one of the defining reasons for his departure.

In its length, in its cost and in its debate schedule, this election is unusual. The first and possibly only real debate of the campaign ended and here are the highlights of what happened.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper left Rideau Hall this morning with Governor General David Johnston’s approval to drop the writ and Canadians are now officially headed to the polls on October 19. For the first time since fixed election date legislation was brought in by the Conservative government, a fixed election date has been followed.
