The next election is going to be a choice between two ideas and two parties. It is clear that both sides are not going to retreat on their stances. Although, who is right? Will lowering corporate taxes really create more jobs for Canadians? Or will lowering income taxes for families create more spending room?

Canada has gone a long way in its history and today it looks at the longest standing minority government in its history. Although, when looking at Harper’s legacy, we look at a blank slate filled with spiteful and an American Republican approach to politics. Stephen Harper will not attack his opponents with policy, he will attack their person. Unfortunately, this disgusting method of politics works and is the politics that the Tea Party fueled Republicans use all the time. Unfortunately, the Liberal Party is too gentle and civil to scoop down to Harper and the Conservative party of Canada’s level of campaigning.

My friends, the next Canadian federal election will be a choice - a large one. We have the governing Conservatives who have time and time again showed their closed way of doing things along with harper’s one man show. And then we have the Liberal party who has tried time and time again to open up to Canadians and allow them to interact with them and their policies. One way to prove this point is to demonstrate the restrictions on both their media outlets. Shortly after the Conservatives launched their ads based on rhetoric, the Liberals responded with an attack to policy choices that the Conservatives can’t hide. Funny enough, the Liberal Party YouTube page will allow people to comment, but the Conservative page will not.

Well Stephen Harper cannot let go of the notion of a coalition government. In a recent set of attack ads, he pins Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff as an irresponsible leader who wants to raise taxes with the NDP and separate the nation with the Bloc Quebecois.

Ever go to the store and wonder if you are getting the value for your dollar? Today, you will learn that you aren’t only being gauged, but that you are also being gaged, and robbed of your precious earnings. In a recent impulse of curiosity – checking out Bing’s new shopping feature, I learned that we are paying as much as 81% more money for the exact same goods as our American counterparts… It’s not like I didn’t know that we paid more and wished that I had the means to bring my wallet down south, but 81% is a hefty difference. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words and this one can pretty much sum up the picture that I saw - not a pretty sight.
