Hey, there’s another election coming up!

Posted: August 31, 2011 in Current Events, Election, Personal Whining, politics, Statistics and Lies

This is the starting point, -the way things stand now in the Provincial Legislature.  Notice that the only party with positive growth in the last election was the NDP.  That doesn’t bode well for the Liberals.  Also notice that left wing political views represent a whopping 59% of voters.  Even in my own riding, which was won by a Conservative, the popular vote was still 53% against them and in favour of one left of centre party or another.

However conservative politicians want to spin it, saying that we are in a neo-conservative revival, it is not true when you consider how a majority of Canadians view the Canadian Identity.
