Week 5 of the Election Campaign

Posted on Sep 8, 2015 in Elections | Comments Off on Week 5 of the Election Campaign

Well, week 5 of this very long election campaign has come to a close along with the summer portion of it. Kids are back to school, adults are back to work and for the most part, people are winding down their summer activities and shifting into the awareness that fall and winter are on their way.

According to the latest at Three Hundred Eight it appears the NDP and the Conservatives have slipped a bit, the Liberals and the Greens have come up a bit in the polls. No party has moved enough to create a clear trend. It’s still anyone’s election campaign.

While I haven’t been posting since the campaign started, I have been reading a lot. I have some articles waiting for me to make some notes and comments on. I plan to do that over the course of the next few days.

While I’m not firm yet on my choice, I’m starting to see Trudeau in a more favourable light than I have previously. I would still prefer to hear some clear statements from him on exactly how he would change Bill C-51. His party’s support for the bill based on making changes later is bothersome for me.

He’s changed his stand on running deficits vs balancing the budget in order to get our sluggish economy moving. I don’t think it would be out of the question for him to do the same with C-51 or any other position he’s taken. While I don’t like indecisiveness, I also don’t like take a stand and defend it to death in the face of being wrong.

The rest of this campaign could get interesting indeed.
