Back and forth from lib too pc has to stop or this country will go into the crapper. we need to go in a new direction. so i would say if the people of ont had any kind of brains they would punish both partys and vote NDP and Green to send a message that we are tired of being screwed over.

Personally, I'm appaled by McGuinty's sneaky eco tax.

Either way, I hope that he fired whoever it was who settled on that name.

Andrea Horwath cause she is level headed no nonsense.
Also from Hamilton.
She was a counciller here for years, and was a Grocery Store Mgr as well.
Knows her stuff.

No more Liberals this year no majority anyway i hope.

Don't have time to read a newspaper, never mind make an informed decision on who to vote for, find a place to vote, etc.  Figure one way or the other, you're screwed if you do, screwed if you don't.

According to the news this morning the televised debate was the most watched program on Tuesday - they specifically mentioned that it beat out the Leafs/Sens game.

Well, that's probably cause the game was on LeafsTV.
(I think; I was out and missed both the game and the debate)

Did they include those watching it streamed in those numbers?

I doubt it, but it wasn't mentioned one way or another - I think they were just talking about TV viewing.

yup, well until the Leafs game was on.  It sounded like the Liberals and the NDP/PC were living in completly different realities, the question is whos reality do you believe?

Provincial election tonight, same night the NHL season kicks off with the Leafs and Habs, they sure picked a good night for the election!

Let's see if Ontario can beat Manitoba's turnout, we had only 57% of people vote.

Is it sad that I care more about the fact that Mr Jobs passed away yesterday than I do about the provincial election today?

I'd just like to thank the Conservative Candidate Nancy Branscombe for skipping EVERY SINGLE DEBATE in London, but managed to have the awesome time to do create geometric patterns and gauntlets of campaign signs.

So she'll be the winner by a wide margin, right?

Sounds like she went to the Conservative MP Ed Holder school of campaigning.
