If You're a Liberal, This Question is For You.



Your guy has been in power for almost a year now. We all recall his promises from last year's election campaign and we've seen how he's dealt with those commitments.

To be sure I think most of us are glad to see Stephen Harper gone. Many of us, however, have reason to lament he's not gone but lives on in his successor, Justin Trudeau.

So here's the question. If you have to put up with three more Harper-esque years like the past one, will you still be voting Liberal in the next election?

Anyong. I think JT needs to hear from everyone with written word, he will not be PM next time round if he doesn't pull up his socks.

I voted Liberal in the last election for the first time ever. Always, always had voted Dipper before that.

The problem as I saw it was that Mulcair was running to the right of Trudeau.

What will I do next time? I guess it's up to the NDP to tell me that...unless there's a move to proportional representation, I'm in quite a quandary. I do not want any chance of the Harperites reappearing.

I hope the NDP cooperates by moving back to their rightful place

I've wondered if JT isn't up to the old Liberal trick of dominating the political centre and then pushing the opposition parties out to the extremes. With the current government having embraced so much of the previous government's policies can the Tories resist moving ever farther to the Right.

As for the New Dems no one seems to have much idea of where they're heading.

I voted Liberal in the last two elections. In short, they looked to be the best candidates running in my riding. They lost, of course, to the dead dog the Conservatives always run here.

Some good people did get elected in other ridings. One wonders how the political machine in Ottawa grinds them down so quickly.

I really think that this new session of Parliament will be the proving ground for this young government, Mound. If decisive and progressive policy is not forthcoming, the party will have set its course for the term. That, of course, is not to say that they can't change tack in the last year leading up to the next election.

Trudeau doesn't seem to realize that he got in because the NDP voters went liberal just to make sure Harper got the boot. He's looking at a minority govt next time if he doesn't smarten up.

Lorne, I sincerely hope you're right.

Anon 6:49 - if some form of electoral reform is in place it's hard to imagine another Liberal majority government.

Interesting that, which was pushed by msm, however, when CCPA's rated each partys' overall platforms, NDP ranked above liberals. Go figure

Shared Services Canada will surely have taken over the entire government three years from now. So I will vote SSC.
