UPDATED: (S)election Day in Canada is TODAY, Yikes!!!

Harper and Canada's Official Head of State
- Queen Elizabeth of England

The only thing that's got me through this horrific (s)election is The Lapine, Canada's sane satire blog. Honestly, folks, even The Lapine can't make up some of the things that come out of Canadian politicians' mouths.  Here's "wet behind the ears" Justin Trudeau saying he's gonna stand up to the "bully" Putin, face to face and give him what for.

Great! More embarrassment coming down the pike.  Trudeau seems oblivious to the history of what his parents, Maggie and Pierre, put Canada through in the 70's.

Though the couple initially appeared to have a very close and loving relationship, the marriage soon began to fall apart. Margaret resented her husband's constant work-related absences and was forced to raise her three young sons largely by herself. Beyond the normal extensive publicity that her high-profile position brought, on a few instances she made her own headlines. Margaret smuggled drugs in the prime minister's luggage, made scantily clad appearances at Studio 54, and tore apart a tapestry in the prime minister's official residence in Ottawa because it celebrated "reason over passion".[5]Over time, the marriage disintegrated to the point that, as recounted in her book, Margaret had an affair with U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy. She was also associated with members of the Rolling Stones, including Ronnie Wood[6] and (according to Keith Richards's autobiography, LifeMick Jagger.[7][8]Suffering from stress and bouts of bipolar depression, she separated from her husband in 1977 and became a much-talked-about jet-setter.[9] She gave many "tell-all" interviews to Canadian and American magazines and appeared in two motion pictures. Pierre Trudeau won custody of the children and did not pay any spousal support. Margaret had a difficult time earning a living after her marriage. She wrote the book Beyond Reason about her marriage.
On the eve of the 1979 election, in which Trudeau's party lost the majority of seats in the House of Commons, Margaret was dancing at Studio 54 nightclub in New York City. A photo of her there was featured on many front pages across the country. This added to the Canadian public's growing unease about "what would happen next."

Maggie singing acCapella to the Cuban First Lady, smoking marijuana at 21 Sussex Drive, leaving her young children and running off with the Rolling Stones? A social worker friend of mine used to say when discussing his client's issues..."The apple doesn't fall far from the tree".

Folks, there was no easy choice in this election.  ALL the candidates were/are fatally flawed, IMO. The only positive option was to get rid of Harper.  That we CAN do.  Unfortunately, Democracy in Canada is irretrievably broken.  No matter who gets in, it will be "bidness" as usual.

Hey Crow... I actually just went out and voted...

And as I stated in my rant, I had to vote 'liberal' in an attempt to get rid of the PC fool in this riding..

Yes, they are all criminals, but Harper has been the worse with his Bill C51 and his TPP deception on the entire nation... And of course they all (and I do not want to put this any way else...) suck Jew dick and swallow.... (Sorry, I know you are a fine lady...)...But again it has come to strategic voting to hopefully get the PC guy removed from office in this riding...

And I went out and didn't spoil my ballot for the first time since 2001. I voted NDP...because a 20 something relative of mine asked me to. I felt I owed it to the young in this kick the arch cabal buttkisser Harper out of office. Just saw the first results flash across the screen...33 Liberals leading and nobody else...of course, that's the Maritimes.
