“come on..in any multi party system it is never unusual for the combined other parties to get more votes then the winner...it doesnt mean anything,what your saying is that if it was a two way battle between the Libs and the PQ the PQ would have won?All losing parties like ot think like this..ask the NDP in BC..they blame their loss on the people who voted Green..as if they would have all voted NDP...and in Quebec the people who didnt vot PQ or Liberal would not necessarily have voted PQ”

“the idea that somehow the NDP is full of the right"class" of people or they speak for some class or another ,is nonsense.They are full of highly paid professionals..highly paid public sector workers,lawyers.etc.I dont see many Macdonalds workers running for the NDP.They should stop this 19th century rhetoric and just talk policy”

“There isn't that many lawyers actually. There are many more teachers. There's also a few musicians, machinists, environmentalists, coaches, criminologist, IT technicians, students, nurses, correctional officer, actor, real estate agent and building contractor to name others. Also, 40% of the NDP caucus are female. This alone is unusual enough.”

LeSynthome on Apr 7, 2014 at 14:23:11

“Here's some 20th century (Steinbeck) and 21st century (Occupy movement) rhetoric:

Justin Trudeau is the new prince of the 1% and leader of "the temporarily embarrassed millionaires" who swoon after him.

You're missing the point. The Liberals & Conservatives were created for and beholden to the interests of the elites, of Big Business. That we managed to create a large middle class was largely due to the success of organized labour and trade unionism which exerted an upward pressure on wages and made the lives of many of the working class much better. Neoliberalism, which Trudeau espouses, is largely the reason for the hollowing out of the "middle class".

But about Trudeau specifically. It is not his education (the quality and level of which he should be embarrassed), nor his profession nor even his income that rightly raise questions about his being out of touch with the middle class which he professes to resurrect. It is his privilege, entitlement, and conspicuous wealth (i.e. his social, political, and cultural capital).”

“people often vote for what they are against then what they are for.The Liberals in BC won because people voted against NDP who have become a party of the public sector unions and the environmentalists..in Quebec they will vote Liberal to be against the PQ,who have totally lost their way..and in the next federal election I will vote against Harper...even if it means voting for some airhead like Justin Trudeau”

Will Webster on Apr 5, 2014 at 16:16:21

“People did not vote against the NDP because they are the "party of the public sector unions and envirionmentalists".
They voted against them because the NDP ran a weak campaign, with a leader who the BC Liberals were able to successfully link to the former Glen Clark govt. That and the fact half the people didn't turn out to vote.
This garbage about most people hating unions is just garbage. People understand, if it weren't for unions, we'd all still be working as serfs and would have none of our toys. Unions are made up entirely of working people who pay taxes and purchase goods in their communities.
Its Right Wing mythology that people in general are adverse to unions. The BC Election was about optics, not mistrust of unions.
BTW: The NDP only gets about 20% of their funding from Unions. This is in sharp contrast to the BC LIBs, who are funded over 65% by corporate interests.”

“so basically democracy for you is voting for the least worse ? No wonder we are bombing people who think differently to make sure they have no real choice in the end like we do.”
