GUEST,ollaimh BS: Canucks... Trudeau? (173* d) RE: BS: Canucks... Trudeau? 07 Oct 12

i used to be ndp, but my wing kept getting kicked out of the party. in nova scotia in the seventies and bc and federally soon after. ya get the message eventually.   i've been voting green mostly recently. but i have voted liberal when i thought there was a tight race. when i lived in toronto i was in gerrard kennedy's riding so i voted for him. i even voted for him in an advance poll one year. then the next day i met him on the street campaigning. he asked me to vote for him, i said "i already did,you could punch me in the nose now and i couldn't change my vote if i wanted to"

luckily he refrained from rearranging my face.

but justin trudeau needs to win serious seats in qhebec to revive the liberals. it might happen but mulcair is a formidable oponent in quebec. however oif trudeau pulled it off, and captured the moderate vote in ontario, he's on his way to power. his father did it, and chretien did it in ontario in spades.

to compare him the george w bush is silly. george w never had a job except with family money. justin taught school. its a world of difference to actually be in the regular workplace compared with being bailed out repeatedly with family money in losing businesses.i wish justin had more of his fathers history of the fight for civil liberties and advanced education, but pierre was very old world. who has that kind of education and bacjground now?

however i will keep voting green as long qs there is a good candidate in my riding.
