  6. I want a balanced budget, legal marijuana and internet privacy. I don't want "tough-on-crime", C-51 or hundreds of billions of useless spending. Who should I vote for?

    1. NDP. Checks off all your requirements. Only party better on internet privacy is the Greens.

    2. no 6a lol NDP doesn't want to legalize weed and they are the champions of spending (child care program for example).

    3. If you're voting in a swing riding (Waterloo and Kitchener Centre are both swing ridings!) -- please vote strategically because it will increase the chances of a progressive party (i.e. NOT CONSERVATIVE) getting in power.
      Btw, Liberal candidates (Chagger and Saini) are the leads in Waterloo and Kitchener. Check here for more info: http://www.votetogether.ca/riding/list/

    4. I'm a student, voting in Kitchener Centre. I vote Conservative.

      I won't be upset if the Liberals win (I didn't like Chagger, but Saini was pretty cool), but I don't like Trudeau. So I'm voting Conservative. Sorry if that bursts your 'voting students = no Tories" bubble.

    1. That's not how "better vote" works. The system works when everyone votes for the candidate they best-align with/believe in, and then the candidate with the most support wins.

      If the most people support the conservative candidate, then that's just the way it is. If the most people support the Liberal candidate, that's fine too. Losing is a part of democracy, too.

  8. Chagger is a joke but I'm voting for her anyway because I don't want another Conservative government

    1. I hope the Conservatives lose but Peter Braid wins. He's too good of an MP not to get re-elected.

      Delete
    2. I agree. He's by far the best candidate for our riding but I just wish he wasn't with the CPC.

      Delete
    3. The problem with that line of thinking is that Braid could better serve the community by running for regional or provincial office in the same riding area. There is not much that is part of the job of an MP that an MP can do to support local community, and if Braid wants to do that, he should run for a more community focused level of office.

    4. 9c, he supports the community at the federal level. A good MP is important to have. He's one of the few MPs in the Tory caucus who actually had good initiatives of his own pushed through in the last Parliament. Chagger, by contrast, seems to see the world in terms of what Trudeau wants.

  9. Conservatives should have used this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDNKcLea8Cw
    Trudeau doesn't care about English Canadians.

  10. I disagree that people should vote for what they believe in. Sometimes people's beliefs are fundamentally wrong. Voting for segregation, for instance, would be morally wrong.

    Don't vote simply for what you believe in, vote for what is best for the largest number of people, and vote as though you are one of the worst off in society (because someday you might be).

    2. Well, there are beliefs which contradict mine which are correct. Before I mellowed out I would have voted in favour of open season on gays. The irony is that I am queer myself.

      I ask that people stop thinking about themselves and start thinking about the collective. The largest problem facing the those who possess an American ideology is that they focus far too much on their own short term gain that they forget how helping others often directly positively impacts themselves (unless of course you are so impoverished that you have nothing to give, as are most minimum wage earners).

      The idea that there isn't enough to go around is fundamentally flawed though, as we have greater abundance than in any other era, it is simply that it is hoarded rather than utilized for the benefit of all.

      I'm not asking people to go full communist, I am asking that people ensure that the minimum wage and social services be enough to ensure that everyone would be comfortable with giving their own child to someone on minimum wage to raise.
