Impressions after 11 weeks of electioneering
This 42nd election campaign has been many things that we may or may not agree upon, but one thing is indisputable. It has been long. All the politicians and parties have had the luxury of time to present us with their platforms, their policies and their vision for the country. Over the course of the past 77 days, they have delivered countless stump speeches across the land; they have broadcast a steady stream of political ads; they have canvassed at thousands of doors; and they have participated in many media interviews and public debates. But did our politicians offer concrete solutions, for the important issues facing us as a nation?
