That sounds suspiciously like the beginnings of a totalitarian regime. Probably why the liberals got a 'surprise' win
Actually, in the previous election, Harper Regime told the national media that they were limited to five (5!) questions per day.
In that election, the media barely squawked about it, and the Globe and Mail ("Canada's National Newspaper") even endorsed the party that told them that!
Worse, Canadians gave them a majority win putting them into a far, far stronger position than they'd been in prior to them being found in Contempt of Parliament - which triggered that election.
I guess my point is that not only should it have been a definitive win (it was), but it should have happened 4 full years earlier.
That it wasn't clear from the writ dropping that the Harper Regime was going to be wiped out (and the fact that it wasn't actually wiped out) is still pretty discouraging and shows that Canadians' apathy runs pretty damned deep.
I think Conservatives assume all other people are as stupid as they are.
I think it's worse - they know how to get the stupid vote but they aren't stupid themselves (well, not all of them). It's pure Machiavellian manipulation.
I'll never vote for another one as long as I live.
While I agree mostly, it's entirely possible that a GOP of reasonable conservatives arises from the ashes of self destruction that the current lot seem intent on inflicting on themselves.
Get rid of Gerrymandering & get campaign finance reformed, in a couple decades there might well be a conservative party worthy of consideration.
