Wow, that's too much voting.... Does it seem chaotic over there to you, Jon?
Who are you voting for?
Here, it seems like people are pretty pissed off to see our leaders take a 33-day bus trip all over the province in a time like this, but we have no choice. It's possible that voters will hold their grudge against the government for that up until election day, but I don't think so.
I don't know which party I'll vote for, too.
The PLQ (Parti Libéral) is the government party ; never voted for them, probably never will. But some people (including themselves, which explains this election) think they are the most prepared for the crisis, that they have the best team. Maybe they're right, I'll think about it. It's true that economics has always been their strongest argument.
The first opposition party is the ADQ (Action Démocratique). It's a right-wing party, and Quebecers mostly voted for them out of anger against the Liberals in 2007. But my fellow citizens realized they're not right-wingers at all, so I'm predicting a huge drop for this one, this time around. I voted for them twice, don't know if I'll go for a 3rd time.
Second opposition party is PQ (Parti Québécois). They hit rock bottom in '07, can't get any worse. But after 5+ years of internal dissensions and four different party leaders in the decade, PQ is still pretty weak. They actually said that they'll try to benefit from an '"Obama effect" (you know, the "yes we can" attitude") to win, since Pauline Marois, the party leader, could become the first female Prime Minister in Québec. Loved them once, now a political act of the past, if you ask me ; but with adversaries like theirs, they still could get my vote.
But one thing's for sure : the Marxist-Leninist party won't get it.
