    Default Poll for Canadians (or any others who are interested)

    The budget vote is at 5:45pm (EST) today. Will the government survive?

    Here is a link to bring you up to date:

    I hope so. That's a good budget and needs to pass. It esures so much social development. It would be sad if it didn't pass.

    Plus if the government falls we'll have conservatives in power and you know what that means. privatization of health care, closer ties with the US, more money for the military and probably more corruption if Mulroney is an example of what conservatives are.

    I hope that the government will survive. Like an editorial cartoon said about the liberals, the devil you know.

    Yeah, I hope the government survives too but if not I hope the Conservatives, get pulverised for allying with the Bloc in the next election. I'm not for the Lib's either but the Conservatives*cough*Alliance and the Bloc are regional parties that IMO dont have the scope nor reflect the broader Canadian interest, and never will.

    No and i hope they dont ! The Liberals Party of Canada is a Party with no moral and no ethic whatsoever, they have feast on Canadian money and trust for far too long. That budget is a joke. They have bought the lefties vote NPD with Billions for social housing and such. They are spending billions again in various Provincial juridiction, another budget la Trudeau.

    We would be better with a Conservative governement. Harper may not be charismatic, but at least he is not a liar like Martin. He is a hard working man, and he deserve a chance with his program. And for those who like to scare children with tale of the 80's, there's no more members of the old Mulroney governement in the Conservative.

    Dont make me laugh with the little sentence that we are better with the devil we know... Because if you say so, you obviously dont follow the Gommery investigation, you should.

    Oh yes, social housing and enhancing our communities is a HUGE waste of money in your opinion, right?

    I guess giving it to the military like Harper wants to do is a much WISER decision. Do you really think most Canadians want that?

    For your information, last election i voted for the NPD and Jack Layton. I like his project of society, and the way he want to work it. But to keep that governement in power just for a budget, no way ! The Liberals have abuse their position of power. Now someone have to pay.

    And yes spending more on the military would be wiser. Much more wiser then spend billions on health, paying thousands of federals employees, wich is provincial competence. If they just send a fraction of those billions to the province(like they should) ans spend the rest on the military, that would be wise and well spend.

    But what do you care about social spending ? Dont you like to beat homeless ?

    Less (good, hard-working) people would be homeless with more social housing. And no I don't like to beat them up. I don't like to see them is all. They make Canada look like crap.

    First, it was a logistical thing. Our troops weren't supplied over there, they were cut off. Also, all the people were treacherous and turned against Britain, and it was also only Britain's soldiers.

    Anyhoo... The British Commonwealth, I said. Don't forget that that has 53 countries, including the old Indian Empire, Australia, Canada, and half of Africa...

    It was badly administrated, and we had an Empire to defend...

    Weesht, we can't let the Canadians know about the American Revolution, otherwise they might try one too, and surely you don't want them being a proper country?

    We kicked your white trousered asses across your own border in 1812. You know why that White House is callled that? Cause we torched it and you had to re paint it.

    We? What do you have a mouse in your pocket? There was no Canada back then. It was the actions of the British army you canuks keep trying to take credit for.

    Be fair, they are of British descent, and are still only a mere dominion, in service of HM the Queen of the UK of GB and NI. Unless he is of German descent, then he shouldn't take credit...
