Who ever wins the next election Stephane Dion or Stephen Harper we can be sure of one thing, there will be more broken promises.
Some one in the heat of an election campaign will make a really dumb commitment, later no doubt they will look back on it and say, I said what?
Some one full of good intend will promise the moon without doing their homework and promise the impossible.
Some one just maybe, will say absolutely anything to get elected with no intention of following through.
As sure as the sun will rise tomorrow there will be more broken promises.
So what is the poor voter to do?
Look at the platform, these can generally be described as works of fiction but can give you an idea of the general ideology of the party.
If any one wins a clear majority it’s a safe bet to say that the election platform will take second place to that leaders core values and roots.
Stephen Harpers roots are in extreme right groups such as the National Citizens Coalition where he was a vocal global warning denier.
Stephane Dion has a long history as a defender of core Canadian values and an environmentalist.
You decide which one reflects your core values and hope for the best.
