Yes I'm canadian, and yes we pay $10/gig.
...even though that pricing scheme doesn't make the remotest amount of sense.  Concerned

It would be better if it was brought up to them before the election so we could base our votes accordingly. Voting for the internet seems like the worst solution to that problem.

Pretty disappointed right now! But it's nice to see the NDP blossomed into a legitimate party, even if it means all the "left" votes will be diffused between the two, and apparently Canadians are fucktarded when it comes to politics so there's not much of a chance of a coalition government in the near future.

Well this is pretty rough.

It's going to be a very difficult four years.. I just don't understand how Canadians could possibly have voted in a man who literally broke every possible rule in the book. Sad

This is how I feel right now. I'm surprised Harper got back in, and with a majority to boot, but at least the NDP really grew leaps and bounds.

I did. Strategically, no less.

Neoliberal/neoconservative rhetoric (which dominates the media) has, for the past 30 years, promised people that extreme right-wing fiscal policies might seem painful, but will ultimately help the economy and eventually lead to job creation. This almost never plays out in practice, but Harper controlled the message this election: only my party can save the economy. People's fear blinds them to anything else.

So no.

I'm drinking away the pain of this election.

/ My riding didn't change, incumbent NDP MP stayed in.

Guess what? 45% of Canadians didn't vote. That means, thanks to your sense of hopelessness, and those like you, roughly 20% (40% of 55%) of Canadians elected the Tories to a majority government.

Because their leader is a scumsucking vampire.

I will NEVER EVER vote for a bastard who supports sending young soldiers to an unnecessary war. There are plenty of reasons to dislike the conservatives, but even if their policies lined up with mine, I'll never forgive Harper for wanting to go into Iraq. War is the GREATEST CRIME against humanity and the earth and I will never forget that, and never let a politician sell me one.

Tell me what you mean by "conservatives", I'll tell you what about them I don't like.

What don't I like about the big-C Canadian Conservative Party, specifically?This link does a pretty good job.

So exactly like I said.
And here I was saying that without knowing all these other things.
