And when you go the polls (Canadian only)

Well, it seems another election is upon us in Canada. As I rarely talk about my political views, I guess I should preface by saying this by saying that this will be the only post about those views this year (unless we have another election).

As a self described small-L liberal, I am tormented by this election. The possibly election of the Conservatives and their leader, Stephen Harper, scares me s**tless. Advances in such things as abortion and same-sex marriage might not be and despite the antics of a certain Liberal candidate, I don't think the Conservatives are going to be any better on copyright. Couple that with a little Liberal arrogance and few scandals and I candidate, Keith Martin of the Liberals, whom I like, I just don't know where to vote. NDP is where I would vote in a perfect world, but should I vote Liberal to keep the Conservatives out?

But hey, at least I am going to vote. Are you?
