NDP vs. Greens [Sep. 10th, 2008|12:15 am]
New Democratic Party of Canada

I'm really disappponted over Jack Layton's treatment of Elizabeth May and the Greens.
I think he's being immature. If he's that scared the greens will take votes from NDP, he should work to better the party, not deny other the chance to stand on their feet.

I've enthusiastically voted NDP every chance I can get, and it makes me sad to see Jack lower himself in this way. It smacks of good ol' boys club.

In response to the Harper budget of this week, CUPE made a pretty cute video in which a booming voice explains the inherent goodness of corporate tax cuts to a bewildered cartoon boy.

Please pass it around!

With the provincial election in Ontario comming up very soon I'm just courious who actually understands what the differant choices actually mean as far as voting on the referendum goes? Could some one explain the differances in a way that people (like me) who don't get the technical wording can understand? I've read it through a few times and still don't understand the differance it would make is put through. I've had a very bad week so I'm more then a little brain-fried and that could be why those synapses just arn't working.

La Presse says that Thomas Mulcair is ahead in the Outremont by-election! We haven't had an MP in Québec in a very long time, and this is probably an obstacle for many voters to consider voting NDP seriously. However, the number of undecided voters is still too great to declare a hasty victory. You know what you can do... The by-election is Monday, any last minute push could lead to victory­!

Howard Hampton / Ontario election in October 10th [Sep. 10th, 2007|11:12 am]
New Democratic Party of Canada
Campaigning is officially allowed today, election October 10th. People of Ontario, please make sure in advance where your polling station is and that you can get there.

I made a community; howard_hampton.

...and I plan to in IRL, make some pins and posters of my own, For Good Government; Howard Hampton.

This is why:

Please, do talk about politics with your friends, don't have to be pushy, just ask if they are voting. I know people who are getting cynical about it, and to cynics, I explain, that yes, sometimes, voting is like a choice between choosing to have a finger cut off by a lunatic, or have an arm cut off by a lunatic. If either choice is grisly, but one is the less so, you should still chose. Abstaining from voting does nothing, unless you are forming an additional party next election. ...or planning a rebellion as well, and unlike Iraq, I hope we are never there.

...and ya know what, I'm actually hopeful this election. I actually like Howard Hampton the few times I heard him spoke when I tuned in to Queen's Park's broadcast on channel 104. Jack Layton and Olivia Chow also seem sensible enough.

NDP does have a chance in Ontario, so vote!

Update: The NDP is tabling a motion to withdraw troops immediately, saying that if it's the wrong mission in 2009, it's the wrong mission now.

(1) all Members of this House, whatever their disagreements about the mission in Afghanistan, support the courageous men and women of the Canadian Forces;
(2) the government has admitted that the situation in Afghanistan can not be won militarily;
(3) the current counter-insurgency mission is not the right mission for Canada;
(4) the government has neither defined what ‘victory’ would be, nor developed an exit strategy from this counter-insurgency mission;
Therefore this House condemns this government and calls for it to immediately notify NATO of our intention to begin withdrawing Canadian Forces now in a safe and secure manner from the counter-insurgency mission in Afghanistan; and calls for Canada to focus its efforts to assist the people of Afghanistan on a diplomatic solution, and re-double its commitment to reconstruction and development.
