The Midst of Moving Hell
Moving Hell is taking longer than we thought it would so blogging will stay light.
Meanwhile, the polling seems to be firming up for the CPC...or is it?
What is clear from the Ipsos poll is that Canadians are really, really, angry about the Brault revelations. What is not as clear is whether this will translate into firm Tory support.
Looking at the numbers in BC it seems the NDP is a beneficiary. So are the Greens.
As I have said before, the CPC by embracing its socons has alienated those of us who are fiscal conservatives but libertarian in our social views. A group which is, I suspect, rather larger, if a bit quieter, than the CPC realizes.
SSM leaves me sitting on my hands for this election. Like the Flea, I will not vote for a party which wants to roll back the extension of equal rights to a minority of Canadians. And I cannot imagine voting for the Grits simply because to do so would be to forgive them their trespasses....something which is only possible after a good, long, stint in Opposition.
All of which is too bad because in many close, urban, ridings in Canada, CPC candidates will have lots of support from people who are mad at the Liberals but will be missing the votes of people who cannot imagine why the Tories insist on making a big deal out of SSM. Probably the difference between majority and minority status.
