Fortunately we have our Strong, Stable, Conservative Majority Government right now, but the polls show a worrying trend. The NDP is nipping at the heels of the Tories and the Liberals are falling further behind (Abacus).
Thomas Mulcair is obviously able to galvanize the anti-Harper and anti-oil sands sentiment.
That could lead to a nightmare scenario not just for the Liberals, but for the whole country if the NDP were able to form government.
As Lorrie Goldstein points out in NDP green plan bad news, Mulcair’s massive cap-and-trade plan is “NDP code for higher taxes and bigger government” – and could spell economic disaster for Canada.
Of course the extreme left faction of the NDP support group would be delighted to witness that outcome.
