Riding Talk

Brossard-La Prairie

During the 2006 federal election, CBC.ca created 308 discussions - one for each riding in Canada - for Canadians to write about what the residents and candidates in their ridings were talking about. Over the course of the campaign, CBC.ca published more than 10,000 reader submissions.

The discussions are now closed, but we've archived the discussion, so you can still read about the federal election from the perspective of Canadians across the country.

Sad how the only way the BQ could get in was with the non-Francophone vote being split between the LIB and CON candidates. I guess I'm stuck with a few months of this...


It's sad because we dont need a BQ to stop our growth of our communities and that's about all the BQ is able to do they will never gain power and it will make us suffer.


This riding will be a close one. The Liberals have even placed it on their endangered riding's list. Just like in 2004, incumbent Liberal Jacques Saada is facing Bloc's candidate Marcel Lussier.

I truly hope Mr.Lussier wins it this time around. The Liberals do not deserve to be re-elected at all. For the past 12 years, the principle of responsible government has been trampled by the Grits while sandals, boondoggles and mismanagement of public funds were making headlines across the country.
Amidst all this, no ministers stepped down, no one apologized. This kind of arrogance has become a way of doing politics in the Liberal party...and it must stop.

I sincerely hope Canadians will place their X beside any non-Liberal candidate on January 23rd. To have the Grits pushed aside for a few years (even a few months) would give this country's political scene a gust of fresh air. The same good ol'friends have been sticking for too long aside the same good ol'government on Parliament Hill. Time for a change.

In Quebec, I hope the Bloc takes 60 seats. They have an honest, competent, multicultural and passionate team of candidates as well as a inspiring leader.

In the rest of Canada, I find the NDP to stand for the utmost cherished Canadian values, without the corrupted flavor of the Liberals. If any strategic voting was to take place, I truly hope that left-leaning voters would regroup around Layton and the NDP. The results might be pleasantly surprising...

I really like what I'm hearing from the Conservative Party candidate, Tenzin D. Khangsar. He's also got a nice website with some very interesting articles on him. www.tenzin.ca
Most Asians in this riding will probably vote Liberal without thinking. But if they do take some time to think, Tenzin is a refreshing new face to politics.
He gets my vote...because I like what he stands for but also because I'm tired of 12 years of being stuck between in the Liberals and Bloc.
