I think that if we can;t get at least 60% of eligible canadians to vote then the vote should not count and things should stay the same. That would shake them up. After all, we only got 58% of the volters the last time. its because NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE POLITICAL PLAYPEN ANYMORE Actually to be honest, we need a full sweeping change. Get rid of Harper, Iggy and Jack. Shake up the box and then see who falls out. BUT keep those three out of the race.

I think Canadians accepted the budget with the understanding that the economy was in such a mess, and still is. Unfortunately, it was the contempt of Parliament that brought down the government, not the budget. We are seeing a lot of pre-election goodies handed out now that were not mentioned in the budget. I think the big corporations will see that Stephen Harper is re-elected. I have worked so hard on supporting the senior citizens across this country, and finally something will be done if the Liberals become the next governing body? I don't think Prime Minister Harper has any future plans to help senior citizens living below the poverty line. Its just enough to buy an extra cup of coffee and some fries at Tim Hortons, if you are lucky.

did anyone ever consider, that maybe the conservatives setup the trap and wanted this election all along. with 43% in support and surging what a better way to trap the mice. FANTASTIC ! my predition, conservatives will win 3 seats in my home province and roll across the country to a MAJORITY GOVERNMENT !

It's about time. Here's hoping Harper gets a majority this time; coalition governments don't work in Canada as our politicians are too childish. As for democracy, that's almost a forgotten concept till the opposition needs to use it to get votes.

I don't know why Harper authorized bombings in Liyba when he wants to govern the same way.

The Liberal Party should have gotten rid of Michael Ignatieff before they bought down the Government as he will hurt them big time. I can see a Conservative mayority on the horizon.

Finally a chance to get rid of Harper. We teach our children that it is wrong to lie and bully others, so why is it ok for Harper. We need to send a message to him and his fellow bullies that his behaviour isn't appreciated. It's start hard to get a doctor in Clarenville and there still aren't enough jobs, but Harper wants ot spend $30 billion dollars on jets. We could build 7 new refinieries with that, 6 Hibernia projects, or make the TCH a dvided hightway 10 times.

I don't like Ignatieff, but, he's right. I know no one care about the state of Canadian democracy, but too much power in is the Prime Minister's Office.

What is fantastic about the news Kate? You have been brain-danny'd! PM Harper has done an amazing job - when there was recession all around us, Canada never did go into full-blown recession because of his good leadership and integrity!! Keep that in mind!!

We didn't have a recession because Conservative and Liberal governments over the years have built a strong banking system, and demand for commodities which Canada, and Newfoundland produce, stayed high

Mr. harper begins the campaign by making a statement and refusing questions. His arrogance should be noted by all Canadians, it has been a trademark of his Government. He has been found in contempt of Parliament, yet refuses to admit that there is anything to discuss in this country other than the economy. Let's hope the voters send him a clear message that his tactics have no place in the Parliament of this country.

This is way overdue, but fantastic news nonetheless.

so what happens if the Canadian people elected another Minority PC Government? Do we keep having elections until the Liberals, NDP and Bloc get what they want? Is that not then disregarding what the voters have declared with electing who they want....
