One thing to remember is that the government of the evil monster in it's first mandate did some very left things, like resolve the tainted blood scandal (by compensating those outside the artificial date) and gave rights back to native women off reserve. Just when you think you have them figured out, they do something quite left, and you WTF? Picture Justin Trudeau in this situation...no, let's not.
I'm not a harperite either,,,I was kind of joking about those who literally thought the sky was going to fall when he was voted in. I'd rather have a boring, weird looking fiscal conservative spending my tax money rather than the ultimate fence sitters or the socialists. And another Trudeau running things? Don't even want to go there,,,,,,,
