Lol that might have been directly after the debate that the Green Party were not allowed to enter? (I can't remember) I voted Green simply because I think that having their vote in on things would help changes things... But no way do I actually want them as leaders of the nation... at least, not yet. That MIGHT be why a lot of students said they'd vote Green... it's also the cop-out vote too... =/

Our conservatists win more often than not (fortunately for us...)
Hell, the Democrats practically own congress right now and they STILL can't get anything done. Which is why conservatives usually come out on top... there are probably fewer of us and less support, but we tend to have much, much less infighting (and tend to be much less easily swayed as well).

ah, thanks for the clarification
i voted Green as well, partly because i wanted to see how they'd fare as country leaders, and partly because i do care about the environment, and other political parties don't really do much about that right now.
in fact, i wonder when was the last time we'd had a politician that made big changes and/or was very inspiring. not in my lifetime that's for sure. it would have been interesting to have been alive around the time that trudeau was, as most people seem to say he's one of the greatest (if not the greatest) canadian politicians.
how are things on the flip side (ie good politician) in the States ? i can't say i'm too familiar with american political history

Well whats-his-name was in there for 14 years and didn't screw up too badly... Chretien.. that's right :P
Acutally, they think Dion would shake things up a bit.. he IS a different sort than our usual... kinda like Trudeau was.. (so I've heard, probably not the same type, just.. non-standard) But what are the chances of him getting elected? He kinda looks like he belongs in some bio classes to be honest...
oh, do you REALLY think the Green would make a good governing party? I want them to have a voice yes.. but I really don't think I want them in charge.. not until they're a bit more politically mature at least.

I always find it funny when people go to extremes.
