Just wondering whom Canadians here will vote for tomorrow.

(And for after the vote)

Are you glad with the outcome?

Who knew Canada was there;
and be honest, . . . isn't that a blessing?

That is why I said "Canadians".

Well, it looks that the Conservatives may get a minority anyway, but it won't be on my account.  I will be putting my vote on the Liberals which could raise some eyebrows, but I have always been a Liberal.  I will let you know what I think of the outcome, but our current Prime Minister in my opinion sure needs to go as we are heading for a really "interesting" economic change.

Good to hear.  I am voting Liberals as well, for I find they have a better sense of direction at this point.  Unfortunately most people in my area seem persuaded to vote for the Conservatives.

It may hardly be a worse amount of money, time, and energy that could help save many needy lives, but instead is now flushed down the toilet of a useless election.

None of the networks here carry Canadian election coverage, but from what I've read, this election reminds me heavily of Governor Schwarzenegger's special election he called for  toward the end of his first term in office, which cost taxpayers $80 million despite none of the initiatives passing.

This one was $300 million.

And the least amount of voters in our history.
