Election madness

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

I am nearly 90 years old and am proud of the fact that I have voted in every election during my adult life. That includes Federal and Provincial and Municipal elections. I even voted overseas during the war.

This present election is really something else. It is an insult to we who vote. It is strictly a power struggle between all parties and we come off second-best. The glad-handing and promises are a thing to behold. Most of the promises will never see the light of day and some of the leaders are practically pulling off a Doctor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde act. Their personalities are changing before our very eyes.

All elections are power struggles but this one is much different. Why use the Bloc Quebecois to force an election? We were going to have one in April, but apparently they smelled blood, and that is what turned me off, right away. The bleeding-heart approach never did appeal to me, no matter which party used it. Just give us the facts.

A lot of people are still trying to decide how to vote. Why not vote for the person running in your constituency, whom you actually know and trust? It will sure make for an interesting election.
