Worst part for Trudeau is a surge from the NDP putting the Liberals in a squeeze, if they go right they lose on the left and visa versa. NDP leader has been looking more moderate lately and less angry all the time and he's saying the right things. Trudeau is being labeled on both sides as weak.
I'm not a particular fan of Trudeau but I hate those ads.

If I had a choice I prefer to vote for a viable Liberal candidates but if current trends continue I might be forced to vote conservative as an anti-NDP vote. I wouldn't want the NDP even in a minority government

I feel the same, but things are changing. The Liberal Party dominated the 20TH century because of the Laurier coalition reinforced by the WW1 Conscription Crisis. When Quebec stopped voting for the liberals en block after Chretien they have found themselves in the same dilemma as the British Liberal Party got themselves into once they lost Ireland due to separation. After Ireland separated there never again was a Liberal Government in Britain. My prediction is there will never again be another Liberal Federal Government in Canada, in our life time. The reason is because they are stuck in the middle, go right and they get nipped on the left, go left and they get nipped on the right.

Harper proves again just how much of a schmuck he is....

Quote:
Prime Minister Stephen Harper is getting slammed on social media for having a group of front-line firefighters pulled out of the smoky hills near this bustling B.C. city so they could pose with him for a patriotic, pre-election picture.
But things didn’t go quite as planned for Harper’s advance team of organizers.
The selected firefighters were so tired and annoyed that they just silently watched Harper as he waved his arms around like a conductor and tried to get them to sing along with him in a rousing chorus of O Canada. None of the group sang or even hummed along.
And none of them accepted the “Canada’s Better With Harper” t-shirts that the PM’s bodyguards were handing out.
“Shit man, we’d all been out there for 12 hours or so and suddenly we’re hauled out, lined up in a parking lot, left standing for an hour, and then expected to sing O Canada so Harper can get a picture?” front-line firefighter Ted McKinley told local radio station AM 1150.
“That’s complete bullshit. Harper just wanted a picture as quickly as he could get one…he still smelled like garlic from whatever he had for lunch,” said the 37-year-old father of two.

How could I forget Grant Devine? That vaudeville act was unfolding next door when I was still living in Alberta. Eight cabinet ministers convicted on fraud charges and the province left $14-billion in the hole. A good reason never to vote Conservative...ever... .

Well, looks like Harper has called the election. A roughly 80-day campaign which seems to have no other purpose than to force the other parties to go into debt in order to compete with his party's coffers swollen with corporate cash.
