Let the seething and gnashing of teeth commence for Prime Minister Paul Martin and his band of thieves.
In a campaign beset by Gomery, insider trading benefitting Liberal allies, and continued attempts by Paul Martin's Liberal party to scare the voters, the Tories under Stephen Harper is leading in polls across the country. Surprisingly the Conservatives are even polling ahead of the Liberals in Quebec.
The day of reckoning is January 23, 2006 when Canadians officially go to vote. Early voting has already started. While Harper is campainging on cleaning up corruption, cutting taxes, and repairing relations with the United States Paul Marin has been campaigning on how Stephen Harper is just like extreme right-wing Americans wanting to do away with abortion while destroying the health-care system and trashing the environment.
From Reuters I like this paragraph: He [Martin] beat Harper in June 2004 but was reduced to a minority government, and some poll analysts say his party may suffer its worst defeat since 1984, reducing him to a footnote. An ill-starred footnote at that, shackled by more chains of money than Marley ever was in Dickens' story.
