I'm so glad to see strong PC finish. If the Liberals got hold of our province, they would destroy our strong economy through increased taxation and bureacracy.

I'm not a big fan of electing dictatorships. I'm less of a fan when the dictatorship warns me that, if I exercise my rights to vote, I may accidentally vote them out of power and...ooooh...bad things could happen then.

The PC's had enough time to spend us into debt, gouge us afterwards to make up for their mistakes, and again waste another boom. At the very least I'd like a real opposition to hold them accountable and if by voting for an opposition I "accidentally" cause the dictatorship we've lived with for the last generation to get ousted...ooops...'bout time they had to get real jobs anyway.

We have a harder time getting out of our neighborhood now then we did before the Deerfoot was modified by the governing party. They just don't drive or care about us in the South trying to get North in the morning or home safe at night. There are so many new homes and families squeezing their way along that it really is a big let down and I can't believe how little our municipal and provincial representation has done or fought to get the LRT out this way. When you're stuck in traffic this week again just remember who doesn't care... the guys who are in power now.

Normally I would not vote NDP. But last week, I talked to a candidate at my door step for 15 minutes and I was ready to vote for him. But then he handed me his leaflet and I found out he was NDP.

I thought about it a lot, and I will be supporting Tyler Kinch, the NDP Candidate. Tyler is a young, polite gentleman who is very passionate about the public health care system and other issues. Even though he probbably won't win, I feel good about voting for the most credible candidate in Calgary Hays.

I think some of us in some areas who lived in areas that went 80% + PC last time didn't feel like our vote matters. However this time, i think people will know that it does matter, the PC is struggling. Struggling alot. And we have a chance to show them the popular vote does not support them, even if its spread around. A good push this time, will lead to a huge change next time. Maybe even them failing. OR CHANGING. Like they say they will. I can gaurantee, that if they make promises this time and don't follow through, a lot of ridings will be 1-5% away from changing hands and they will lose them all.

Like anything, when your just about to lose power, you try harder!

So at least lets make them try harder

Wow, I was astonished to read that voter turnout was only a laughable 34.8% in 2004. People love to bitch and complain but don't bother to try and do anything about it either.
