Canadian Election





gandalfthegrey
Canada is having an election.

The choice is basically between the Conservative Party and their leader, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper

and

four left-leaning political parties

Liberal Party - centre-left
Green Party - environmentalist, left
New Democratic Party - social democratic, further left
Bloc Quebecois - socialists and Quebec separatists

The Conservatives have 35-40% of the support of Canadians, while the left-wing parties have 60-65% of support of Canadians, yet the Conservatives are set to win again because of the Canadian 'first past the post' electoral system.

I'd probably vote more for the best person to represent me, than the party. For me it is Dr. Hedi Fry from the Liberal Party in Vancouver.

In general, I have a feeling that the election is going to have a surprise outcome, i.e. people learned to hate the Conservative Leader, Harper, so much, they are going to make a statement against the Party as well.

Not sure what you mean with "first past the post" electoral system? Question

I think the results will mirror the results of the previous election. Harper will get slightly closer to his desired majority, but will be denied again.
