While I believe the Ontario Progressive Conservative Party under John Tory is the best option for Ontario, I have become somewhat disillusioned federally ... which happens, I guess. You either love everything, or find something that ticks you off and makes you move on.
So, in the event of a federal election, I'm at something of a clean slate, and I want to honestly review platforms for the best option when voting.
I thought what I would do is to take a look at some of the issues that are of interest to me, and compare the party's stance on it. As opposed to taking the traditional partisan route, and reviewing a platform and saying how great it is.
I tried that.
I died a little bit inside.
There will be a couple of ground rules for myself:
- I'll have to completely burn off my short term memory and pretend the last three years in Canadian federal politics did not exist, otherwise I'd never vote Liberal or Conservative. Ever.
- I can't vote Bloc, so I will likely only include the Conservative, Liberal, NDP, and Green Parties.
Comments will be open on each coming piece - an open space available for you to shill and spin your party's platform :-) .
