Talk about your favorite Canadian election muck-raking here.

And be moderated by you?   No way. :P

There are plenty of other topics about election issues.

Moderate me baby.

So far I'm green/liberal, mostly to give Scheer the finger for his shitty call-outs to populism.  Anti UN, anti Climate, anti Muslim, Evangelistic...

How is Scheer anti-UN?  Or anti-Muslim?  Or anti-climate?  Or populist?  He is evangelical, but so far policies don't reflect it.  Sounds like you've bought in to Waldo's scary caricatures.

At this point Scheer would have to start raping babies for me not to vote CPC.

Could you have found any two weaker articles to try and prove your points? The UN article clearly points out he had no specific examples to point out during the interview, but his press secretary came to his rescue to try and take cheap shot swats at the current government. And the Climate Change article, laughable. No bias there eh!

although there's 3 currently active, I'm sure member 'Poonlight' intends this as a thread to address such things as polling, policy platforms, etc.; I quite sure he doesn't intend this as a/his pro-CPC/Scheer thread.  ;D

I enjoy things in moderation too.
I'm having a hard time justifying parking my vote with the NDP again this time. I really liked Mulcair and new guy doesn't seem at all ready (as they say). My riding is a Liberal/CPC swing riding too, so I guess if I'd rather see Trudeau than Scheer, I'm going to have to lend the Libs my vote.
Which is kind of repulsive,  but oh well.

I'm on my phone but he has kowtowed to these types of supporters.

I have my doubts he will actively **** a baby before the election.  In the other hand if Trudeau came out against baby ****, he could well take a wait-and-see approach.

There is currently no thread dedicated to the overall 2019 federal election, that i can find on here anyways.  We have waldo's Scheer-smear, Granny's "vote green" thread etc.

That's not an article it's the CPC climate platform from the CPC website.

Unlike yourself i'm not a diehard partisan.  I voted for Trudeau's Liberals last election (don't regret it, still better than corrupt Harper), voted NDP before that.  And like I said, if Scheer starts raping babies I will gladly not vote for the CPC this election.

I don't think he will **** any babies but he may head down the road to making sure any unwanted pregnancies aren't allowed access to proper medical care for termination so back we go to knitting needles in back alleys.

So we're back to Harper's hidden-agenda again.

Ah no, it's looking ahead to Scheer's likely hidden agenda again.
