Red, Blue, Green And... Green?

Today was election day in BC.

I have to say that this was the worst electoral campaign I have ever witnessed. Politics are very boring in the West compared to Quebec and Ontario. Nothing happens, everyone repeats the same thing, there are no scandals and no great debates. It's just plain boring and no one deserves to win after such a uneventful campaign that lacks passion.

As opposed to the rest of Canada, BC really only has two main parties: Liberals and NDP. Funny how Conservatives stay far away from BC, in fact, so far away that they were not even on my ballot. But I am not complaining, since Harper should be banned from politics. So our choice today was to vote for a) someone with a DUI or b) someone who has ruined BC's economy. So today I did what I had never done before: I voted Green. Granted some may say that I wasted my vote, but I was not voting to elect a government. Today, I voted to say that I did not agree with both party's platforms, candidates or campaign. Today, I voted to let the government know that they really should try harder. I wanted to let them know that they did not impress me.

And I'm quite happy about that. We all know that the guy with the DUI will win anyway.

Good for you! I slept through the vote as I was way too exhausted today. And I agree with you that the Stephen Harper should be banned from not just politics but also banned from being a Canadian. His weasel tail is slowly emerging and it disgusts me. Just like his bigoted policies.

No kidding. He's more of the likes of Bush... which is deeply scary. With what he says and does, he'd be much happier in the States.
