I did an online questionnaire from the CBC: Whose views are most like yours?
It seems the Liberals are my party and I’m most likely never to vote for the Conservatives.
Locally, if I were to vote for the best person in my riding, I’d probably pick the Liberal candidate. I side more with the NDP, but our NDP candidate doesn’t seem mentally stable enough to be in a position of power.
In terms of the best down to earth party leader, I’d vote for Elizabeth May. The rest of them seem like a bunch of clowns, though if I had to choose one guy, the lesser of the evils I suppose, I’d go with Michael Ignatieff. He needs to work on his public persona, put the kibosh on that stupid grin, and he needs to answer his questions with less evasion, but he’s got to be better than Stephen Harper who may be good with money, but in every other area of politics is full of lies. Harper is not an honourable guy. I don’t believe a word he says about anything. If the Conservatives want to win a majority, they need to get rid of Harper. I’d like to get rid of all of them, though (except Elizabeth May), and inject some new blood into politics. None of the leaders of the major parties are inspiring.
I was asked to participate in a survey from Confirmit.com while reading this morning’s news at CBC.ca. I said yes and answered a series of questions about where I get most of my news: Radio, Internet, Television, Newspapers or Other. I get 90% of my news from CBC.ca or CBC Radio. I don’t watch TV and I don’t often read newspapers. I had no problem sharing this information because I’m happy to do what I can to improve CBC services. I was hoping to see a question about reader comments on CBC.ca so I could say, “Shut it down.” There are better ways to actively contribute to the flow and exchange of cultural expression than through the comments feature on CBC.ca which has largely become a haven for trolls. But they didn’t ask about that. Instead, after going out of my way to answer the survey questions, I get this message at the end of it all:
I read one blog: The J-Walk Blog. I used to read it through Bloglines along with a bunch of other junk, but I deleted my subscriptions because it was information overload. I can count on one hand how many sites I check out every day. I like it that way.
But that’s me. What about you?
And by “read,” I mean skim or subscribe to; and by “blog” I don’t mean something like CBC.ca.
And if YES, tell us about your plans.
