    I didn't know there were so many SA people who knew anything about Canada. I'm still laughing at the Fred Flintstone reference.

     

    Layton and his party are a sideshow attraction at best and if they do manage to win: 1. it will NOT be a majority, 2. Canadians will have proven themselves to be the dumbest people on the planet, 3. we (Canadians) are doomed. The NDP surge is primarily the result of Liberal Party incompetence (Michael Ignatieff is an academic, and his lieutenant Bob Rae is a sniveling opportunist, and Iggy's entire platform is that he's not Stephen Harper) combined with a general mistrust of Harper, the Conservative party leader. I don't trust Harper either but he's the best candidate for the job.

THIS IS STANDARD PROCEDURE. there is NO RACE......they do this to create the sense of urgency, and get the cattle, er voters 'eyeballs' onto thier screen . it creates a phony sense of urgency, like squirting a turtle race at the fair, its all total bllsht. anyone with an IQ of a 5 year old can see their pathetic machinations. Harper will be relected for no particular 'reason', and the 50,000 elitist overlord unelected upper management can keep thier sickening worse than useless 'jobs' printing socialist drivel...
