I agree the race is now between Sullivan and Cleary. I think this bodes well for Sullivan since Cleary is grossly misinformed, arrogant and has little substance if any at all. He has nothing to offer us. We need an MP in government. It is killing our province. If you look at the party's reespective leaders, you've got Harper who has taken Canada through the 2nd worst recession in histor and came out as "envy of the world" and then Taliban JacQ who must raise taxes to support all his election promises. A cap and trade in Canada? Are you kidding me? That will drive gas prices so high we will all be riding bicycles in a year. Lets vote NDP as see how poor our nation can become. The only sensible and logical choice in this election is Conservative. Anything else and our country will do a 180 degree turnaround economically.

Being a senior citizen,and fed up with the government policy of giving me a measley increase on my old age pension and canada pension,and then taking it back off the guaranteed supplement,therefor leaving me with no increase whatsoever,whereas the cost of living was continually rising,because of this abusive policy i voted for the NDP in the last election,namely Jack Harris,after relaying my concerns to him i at least expected him to speak up against such an abusive policy,to say that i felt slighted is an understatement,when time after time the only ones he spoke in defence of was the murderous taliban,he didn't see fit to speak in defence off the abuse of our seniors here at home,this election i'm not sure who i will vote for but i know who i won't be voting for,and that is the NDP.If they wanted an issue to blackmail parliament why didn't they choose something pertaining to the well being of Canada and it's citizens,such as the disfunctional immigration system,namely the Singh policy enacted by the Liberals,or the issue of Dual citizenship,both policies are there to use and abuse the Canadian taxpayer,voter beware of the sweet talking politicians promising everything,at the end of the day it's the taxpayer who must foot the bill,the politicians will walk away with thei fat pensions.

CBC NL political affairs correspondent said on national news that if it was a dtraight Coady-Sullivan race, he would "Mop up the floor with her" but Ryan Cleary's well funded challenge has changed the dynamics and now it is a race. The NDP will not form the next government, but you can bet it will have even more influence if it is another minority. Coady is dead in the water and Harper has to be stopped. plus, Jack harris got things done from the NDP benches (while Coady got nothing done from the Liberal benches) so electing Cleary might be good for St. John's and Mount Pearl.

But just imagine what Sullivan can do from the Conservative benches: crosswords, sudokus, text messaging and dutifully applauding his boss each time he evades a question or deflects another scandal. Under President Harper, a backbencher (or cabinet minister) is about as much use as an inflatable dartboard.

Harper is why Loyola Sullivan isn't doing well, Cleary plays a small role. What has Jack Harris done exactly that Siobhan Coady hasn't? Two of them are some of the highest profile members in their caucuses and while Coady is active in her riding Harris does very little.

Coady is nothing but cheap PR. The only person who thinks she is the hardest working MP in Otttawa is Siobhan who gave herself the title. It's like that Spinal Tap lyric "I know its so, because I told me so!" sadly, their are public relations practitioners like Siobhan Coady who believe if you say something 5 times it will stick in people's heads even if there is not a shred of the truth to it.

Does Jack realize our light bills will double because of this musrat falls fiasco and what about the NDP position on the seal harvest..How come no body will ask these socialist a question

Th only one you have to ask anything of is Premier Dunderdale. She's the one doing the developing of Musrat Falls. Not either of the Federal parties.

According to the latest Angus Reid poll, the NDP is tied with the Liberals. Interesting times.

Yes, Jordan. The Conservatives and Liberals have done such a good job themselves. Yes, in case you didn't know, I am being sarcastic.

I think Mr.Layton would do "a wonderful service for Canada",if elected. NDP has my vote this year For Sure!, why not? We all saw 'what the Liberals were about with paul martin & his GOONS in power! Now everyone can see what steve harper is doing for the provinces & small business,nothing!,not an effort! Harper would`nt even answer the letter that Danny Williams wrote him on the Atlantic Accord! So its time to put the NDP in power & see what comes out of it!

We have seen how the Liberals use the NDP policies to get elected then adopt the Conservative platforms as soon as their in Parliament. But it dosen't take much to see that Ignatieff has had a fondness for the policies of George Bush for a while now.

He's the only one to trust because he knows he'll never have the oppertunity to live up to his promises.

Definitely a Conservative supporter because he never has to think when he votes and can't spell opportunity.

Sorry that I made a spelling a mistake. I actually plan on voting NDP, because of the candidate not the party. The fact is very few, if any, political parties can keep the promises they make. The PCs here haven't always kept their promises. The NDP in Nova Scotia weren't raising taxes or having more then 12 cabinet ministers when they campaigned in 2009 and they've raised both. In New Brunswick the Liberals campaigned on not selling NB Power and then tried too. Jack Layton would break promises if he was in power to, he wouldn't be able to do everything he says.

You would think that some people would have the intelligence to come up with an original statement at some time in their lives.
