Voting ABC is as easy as 1-2-3
Here are some basic ABC guidelines that will work wonders if we're all on the same page:
1. If you live in a riding that went Liberal, NDP or Bloc in the last election, vote for that party.
2. If you live in a riding that elected a Conservative, vote for the party that came second.
3. Vote for Elizabeth May if you live in her riding.
Now get your family and 10 friends to do the same. Let's vote out the Regressive Conservatives!

chuo 89.1fm's "What The...?" recommends that you rob the vote this Monday from 3:30pm to 5pm!!!
This country needs a little change - we can all agree on that; the political machine is dirty and some cleaning out is definitely of order.
But the two least unpopular options are both sketchy at best: one is so riddled with overuse and abuse that cracks are showing everywhere, while the other hides well-documented horrors behind the mask of a well-orchestrated makeover.
And that's the problem isn't it? Everyone is acting as though there were only two parties - as though our country were divided into two parts (like our southern neighbours are). We have a broader range of political expression, yet we're consistently reducing ourselves to less than what we are - a multiplicity that is envied the world over.
Instead, we consistently turn to thieves, liars, and cheats to take hold of our daily lives - of our very existence. Either we blindly ignore the many alternatives, or we try to vote 'strategically' - which is probably the most ridiculous tactic ever.
We here at "What The...?" suggest that we should cancel our votes - instead of giving power to those we loathe and/or distrust. If everyone did this instead of not voting (or voting for the least worst!), we'd be sending a pretty clear message to the powers-that-would-be that we still care about our country and our future - but we feel that none of them are making the cut.
So let's rob them of our votes - and maybe then we'll finally see a few much needed improvements!
And it is in this spirit of total bewilderment and utter frustration that we have put together a medley for our times; from freedom of choice to dishonesty and empty promises, we've dug up what we feel are the most appropriate anthems for this week's electoral shakedown.
And, although many of us are sick of hearing about the elections by now, it would be pretty much unforgivable to miss out on a show that manages to put A Perfect Circle, Arcadia, Gene Loves Jezebel, Headstones, Jane's Addiction, Killing Joke, Annie Lennox, Love And Rockets, Megadeth, Midnight Oil, New Order, Sarah Slean, The Hidden Cameras, The Music, The Sammus Theory and The Sex Pistols together on the same unforgetable bill.So, whatever you do, make an effort to vote and then tune in this Monday from 3:30pm to 5:00pm (eastern) to get yet another fresh perspective from CHUO 89.1FM's "What The...?" - the only Radio With Multiple Personalities!!!

He wants to take away a woman's right to an abortion, he wants to take away same sex rights, he wants to give tax cuts to the rich, he wants to join the US in creating war.

warren kinsella / provincial liberals
yes, warren kinsella
who: author, pundit, columnist, ex-liberal strategist, staunch chrétien loyalist, canadian blogger
, progressive liberal, ex punk band member who likes to bring his past up like one of those reasonably hip old guys
notorious for: invoking the flinstones and using his son's stuffed barney dinosaur to scare canadians away from fundamentalist christian candidates such as
mr. stockwell day who believe man coexisted with the dinosaur; saying nasty things to the martinites who dissed him when forming their war room personnel; writing books about hate groups in canada
why kinsella matters: this man scared canada by clearly stating what a vote for the alliance entailed - granting influence to fundamentalist and hate groups that were disturbingly close to the hearts and pockets of the alliance leadership and membership. he has stated harper is a starkly different adversary in that he does not have the same direct links to the extremist groups and hateful thinking that haunted stockwell day. securing the former tory voters hostile to the far right orientation of the old alliance party is crucial in breaking ontario and the maritimes on the way to forming government. is warren helping the conservative cause, or is nobody really listening to him anymore?
also, its fun for political junkies to watch the drama surrounding his discord with the current liberal brass - members of martins dirty deeds done dirt cheap team suddenly have influence. he extended the olive branch to team martin, but not without conditionalities.
So here's the deal, made in the full view of the thousands of folks who check out this web site every day.
1. Paul Martin's senior staff were wrong to state that Jean Chrétien, and the people around him, were criminals; and
2. All federal Liberal Quebec candidates have, to use Stephane Dion's phrasing, "resolutely and unambiguously cease[d] to be separatist and reconcile[d] themselves with the Canadian ideal..."
Then I will pack my bag and fly up to Ottawa to help out in the war room tomorrow morning. No bullshit. PMO switchboard has all my numbers - or they used to, anyway. Your move.
the papers are rife with fresh rumours of everyones favourite liberal-in-exile. go warren.
martin chided ontario premier dalton mcguinty regarding his election promises
, telling a high school crowd that unlike SOME people, he wants to keep his pledges. kinsella fires back with a defense of mcguinty in the post. yes, its the post, but at least im reading.
why isnt the prime minister denouncing and distancing himself from gordon campbell to garner popularity in bc?
a) is he too close to gordo to distinguish?
b) does he not understand the premier is reviled by rural and urban british columbians alike?
the ndp has linked gordo to the martinites and the conservatives out here.
