Ontario Elections, What Do You Think?

Mon May 12, 2003 3:07 am

First of all when do you think they will be called? Soon or not until fall? Also, who would you vote for and who do you think will win?

Personally, I hope they are in the fall so I can have the pleasure of voting the Torries out of office (I'll be 18 by then). I think Eves and crew will lose, and if not, a minority government is their best hope. They pissed off a lot of people... I guess I would vote for the Liberals, although I'm not exactly crazy about them either. Unfortunately our outdated, "first past the post" election system forces me to vote for the party that has the best chance of beating the party I most despise rathern than the party I actually fully support. But my dislike of the FPTP system is another story...

All your comments are appreciated...

If Eves thinks he is going to lose he will call them in the fall, thus screwing a lot of Liberals candidates as many of them hold jobs as municipal politicians. Municipal elections are happening in the fall and if he calls it then they will be forced to choose. I hope, and yet at the same time don't hope, that they are called in the fall. I hope they are cause then I will be 18 and can vote (for the Tories) and I hope they aren't cause it means Eves doesn't think he will win. Its a toss up. I could be totally wrong, this is just a theory, if you even want to call it that.

I think he'll call a June vote. Apparently, the Tories are worried about hydro brownouts this summer and backlash form the double cohort university crunch in Sept....they would like these issues not to be "active" election issues.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.
