Well I made my x after much deliberation. Almost voted for the Canadian Action Party guy, who is an acquaintance of mine and has been actively soliciting my vote, unlike anyone else. But since I worked for him awhile and then he fired me, I voted NDP when it came down to it. Maybe next time for the CAP. (Their platform is that Free Trade, NAFTA and associated agreements have paved the way for Canada's absorption by the US within 20 years and must be immediately repealed). Next time might be soon if there's a minority government. Fine with me--the Liberals do not deserve any more free ride.

DaveTAM, you're a good guy but Day's history and viewpoints are well-documented from a multitude of sources--complaining about a monolithic media blackening his rep is just not credible. Besides, his campaign was hands-down the slickest series of media-manipulation maneuvers ever seen in a Canadian election, if they have some sort of worthwhile message that got lost, it's their own fault.

Done my duty,
