161. Thanks for what you have said!
Great post, glarius.

Another difference between Canada and the US re: politics:

I have been following your elections for three decades, as I am a US fan of the NDP.

I have long noticed that "ordinary people" can "stand" for Parliament, at least in the NDP. By that I mean, single mothers, working people, university students, truck drivers, local activists, etc. Is this true in the other parties as well?

It doesn't cost an arm and a leg to run for office up there. Here, if you are not a wealthy male lawyer, it is much harder to run, at least for Congress.

Don't let that George Bush wannabe Harper change Canada!!
