Re: Canada votes...yet another conservative minority government. by Lounge Trekker on 15 October 2008 6:43pm
 
I see the media's challenge more as one of entertainment than news...to capture the viewer's attention with only a 15 second spot, then try to keep it through the commercial time out...

I've found that if I try not to see 'the news'...I still know enough to look for the information and I still know 'what's going on'.

So in our constituency, the elected representative is a Member of Parliament. It turns out the opposition seat for the last several elections was re-taken by a conservative. It is unlikely to directly benefit us individually, but at least we have a voice in government. So...not at all bad for those of us in the Vancouver Island North constituency.

Was there a debate on the site in the run up to the election like there is in the Obama/McCain thing?
Ignore that comment, there has been debate in this thread.
We have a by-election coming up in the constituency next to Gordon Brown's (our P.M.) and there is speculation that a 10,000 Labour majority may be overturned. I must admit, I have met the Labour candidate and in my opinion he may hold the seat.
