    I'd rather have the conservative party in power and give AC a boost than the liberals in power.

    My favorite part of this was logging on to CTV.com and watching Peter Mc Kay in Nova Scotia. "I have'nt slept in two days"..... The whole interview made me laugh really hard. To me its propaganda, just to get a sympathy vote.
    It would be propaganda if the free media didn't publish it out of their own free will. I think it is rather lame myself, Belinda broke his heart..haha

    I'm tossing my vote to the Greens or another small organization that can use the funding. Neither the NDP, Liberals, or especially the Conservatives cater to my views.
    Some of the former PC members who didn't want to join the new party went and formed the Progressive Canadian party, which they say maintain a similar stand as the former PC. They even used a somewhat similar logo. You might be interested to check them out, if you haven't already.
    If there is a Progressive Canadian candidate in my riding in the next election, I will give him/her serious thought

    I'm one of those terrible voters that does not vote by party. I've voted for all 3 of the major party's, however this time I'll only chose between the Liberals and the NDP.

    As long as Harper is in there I will not even consider the Conservatives. I don't like his policies and I don't like him.

    And while the Liberals are airing their dirty laundry in public you can't tell me there weren't similar deals (maybe not so bad) under previous governments regardless of the political stripe.
    I may stand by the Liberals, but no matter what, when I turn 18 I am probibly not going to vote. But hey, every vote counts right? even when you choice has 1votes and the other has 100 (these numbers do not relate to the political numbers in Canada).

    fallingeese, I am quite aware of this change, I forgot to put in "Liked" and "Was". I am deeply sorry.

    I think you need to catch up on Canadian Politics. The "Progressive Conservative" party died almost 2 years ago. The Conservative Party of Canada is what it is now.

    I really do think that I should go get a membership to the Conservative Party.

    Yeah, MacKay and Harper have both been recorded on camera with rather sad and pathetic statements on the matter... crybabies.

    Yup, there's a big difference in the original Progressive Conservative party and the current PC-Alliance merger that is the Conservative party...

    The PC party was more centre-right, an area where many of us fall and no longer have a respective party to vote for... the Reform/Alliance whackos are extreme Alberta bred right-wingers with some pretty crooked ideology... Peter MacKay tarnished a perfectly good party by merging it with the fanatics.

    I'll toss my vote to the Greens this time around... at least they can use the money!

    4. they belive in methods that cut tax
    5. they have no hidden agendas

    need I continue?
    and yes I and many others have looked at the agendas of PC...
    Points 1 and 2 are precisely what I said earlier -- they are merely in spite of the Liberal's flaws
    3. Treating each province differently... how differently? Treat them as if they are separate nations?
    4. Hopefully not too much for the corporations
    5. We don't know yet... anyone can say anything at this stage

    anyway, I'm not a Liberal supporter, in case you are wondering, but I just think many people are voting Conservative for the wrong reasons

    by the way, it's no longer PC, just C now. I like PC more than the merged Conservative party

    I notice that many of the Tory supporters are using the Liberal's corruptions and scandals as the reason for their allegiance... but have any of those people thought about the Tory platforms and agendas? Clearly not as much attention is given to those, which should be the real reason why we support a cause.

    Thinking in the long run, we don't make decisions in spite of something. We should be really focussing on the idealogies with which we agree (even though any promise from a politician doesn't mean anything )

    From CTV.ca


    ...Dosanjh convened reporters to give his own account of what transpired.

    Dosanjh said he was approached on Saturday night by a mutual friend who said the Grewals would "cross the floor provided she gets a senate seat and he gets a cabinet post."

    The minister said the two met over beer and pizza on Tuesday night, at which point he dismissed the suggestion as inappropriate and directed Grewal to take up the matter of switching political allegiance with Tim Murphy.

    "I'm actually offended he couldn't take no for an answer," Dosanjh added, insisting that his party never offered any Conservative MPs anything to lure them over.

    Grewal's allegation comes the day after Ontario MP Belinda Stronach left the Conservative benches to sit at the Liberal cabinet table.

    Both Stronach and the Liberals have since denied suggestions she, or any other MPs, are being lured across the floor with promises of plum jobs or patronage appointments.
    I'm not saying I believe or disbelieve either of the articles. But at this time, before we know the whole truth, let's not jump to conclusions.
