I voted Conservative...


Well that's news.



Prediction: I think Harper is in trouble. He has gotten a lot of bad press, some of it deserved. With trembling fingers I type AN NDP MINORITY GOVERNMENT!

Ghastly.


Nope. I see a Lib minority. IMO it all comes down to BC. NDP or Lib. Who are the Greens going to steal the most from?

I would like to publicly apologize to every Canadian.
Last election i voted Conservative. I Doubt i was the deciding vote, however my idiocy added to Harpers overall numbers.

Didnt make the same mistake this year and never will again while Harper is running.
...I hope he trips and knocks his 2 front teeth out tonight.

So you are another conservative that has had enough of Harper's totalitarian rule? Cool. It's time to get the party back in shape. Ditch the bitches. If we're lucky we'll have this person leading the party after the Harper purge:

Your prediction might be right. I'm listening to the pundits on CBC and there seems to be a consensus looking for a big rise in Liberal fortunes. This shocks me more than the idea that Harper could be voted out after three terms of office. I ask myself how can a party, the Liberals, go from having roughly one tenth of the seats in Parliament to forming the government, even if it is only a minority government!

I really am in shock about the idea that people think that could occur.

Looking at the representation as it stood the day the election was called, in the event things would go badly for the government, I should have thought that the NDP (second party in the house by seats) might sneak up the middle while the Libs and Tories hacked at each other, but people don't seem to see that possibility.

Really? Or are you referring to the Progressive Conservatives of 2000 that damn near lost their national status because of the lack of support?


Liberals, led by Chrétien, are re-elected with a third majority, defeating Stockwell Day's Canadian Alliance, the unsuccessful attempt to unite the Reform Party and the Progressive Conservatives. Progressive Conservatives, led by former Prime Minister Joe Clark, barely keep official party status in the House with the minimum 12 seats.

Here is the current House:



A CTV pundit has been saying that even Stephen Harper is not optimistic tonight. Conservative party polls must be showing a strong feeling for change.

Heres hoping Canadians understand that they need to boot Harper out, not too keen with trudeau or mulcair, but i guess voting for the lesser evil this time, might make a little bit of good.

I voted NDP

I voted Liberal as a strategic vote, but also because they are good at managing the economy (supporting entrepreneurs.) The last time I voted NDP because they were in the lead against Harper, I really liked Layton and the NDP are against Free Trade (at least supposedly.) I am very much against Free Trade myself, but for right now I feel we need to get our economy and various other immediate concerns dealt with by an experienced party. I also like Justin Trudeau and it would be so refreshing to see a Prime Minister of Canada that I actually like!

I understand your view, but never in our history have we had a dictator or a government so packed full of criminals, attacking our rights and freedoms, and our very sovereignty with things like the Investor State Dispute Settlement! If we have only corrupt parties to choose from, I'd want one less packed with outright criminals. I believe in making a stand against evil, however one can, even if it's just voting for the lesser of three evils.

Mr chong would be a good choice. I worked for thr Conservative Party as a data analyst for 7 years. Got meet a lot of really good hearted people.
I am conservative, but this year i couldnt be responsible for aiding to harper.
When i was called to donate to the party, i said to the person "the party will never get another donation from me as long as that bozo is behind the wheel"


Right now early poll results are in, 7 for red 1 orange crush and 0 cons. Still to early to tell, but the liberals will most likely take it home tonight...as a minority though.

I tried. They would not let me vote.

Sorry, can't help you.

All of these really silly rules they have.

Going to need more context on this. All you needed was an ID, Or some paper/digital bills. Worst case all you needed was someone to vouch for you.


Yeah, it seems that they don't want to let Aussies vote. Seems that you can't vote in ours either.

So sadly, I cannot respond to the OP's call.

I was surprised that NFLD went Lib. Then I heard Danny Williams speak. Serious Conservative Newfoundland politician. HE says Harper must go.

I have a feeling that the diagram of the House is going to be much redder tomorrow. I'm getting the feeling that this might turn out to be a second Trudeaumaniafest. I worked for the Liberals in the first one in 1968.

I certainly see your position, but there will come a time in the not so distant future when conscientious objection and passive rebellion against the corruption does nothing at all. It will be a point at which people will have to make hard choices.

Cheers - Dave

I think that is the bottom line all over the country...

Get Harper out...

OF course theres always a few that prefer to just plug their ears, shut their eyes and forget what hes been doing to this country for a decade... Scandal after scandal, but sure... give him another shot

According to the CBC, the Liberals are polling 66% of the vote.

If that trend migrates out of the Atlantic Provinces, it is going to be very grim for Conservative incumbents, including cabinet ministers.

Its early to say but the liberals seem to have won the maritimes, i wonder how ontario and quebec follow suit.
