It could come as early as March 21st. A federal election that Stephen Harper could gain a majority in. I will be involved in helping to elect Gerry McIntaggert in the Sudbury riding. He has an excellent chance of unseating Diane Marleau.
There was a great turnout for the nomination meeting earlier this evening, at the Steelhall – perhaps fifty people. Gerry is a hardworking former city councillor and he will make a great addition to the federal NDP caucus. I will have more later and will keep a regular post.
I want to make it clear that for my part, this country is in a lot of trouble and most people don’t seem to know or care to know. Also, if Harper wins; and he has a good chance because of the dysfunctional state of Canada’s electoral system, then I believe that’s what it will take for Canadians to wake up and reclaim our political system.
