Add my name to the long list of Canadians who do not want a Christmas election campaign. Christmas is filled with enough bickering and dysfunction as it is.
It doesn't matter whether the election is held now or two months from now. The Liberals are going to win. The Liberal Party may be corrupt but the Conservative Party is too extremist, the Bloc too separatist and the NDP too socialist for most voters.
Like it or not, Paul Martin is going to be prime minister as long as Stephen Harper is leader of the Conservative Party. Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Not gonna happen.
Martin has said he will call an election within 30 days after the final Gomery report is released on February 1. So why force an election now?
Oh, wait a minute. I get it. It’s not about what we want, is it? All of this posturing is about fighting for political power, party survival and getting as many seats as possible.
It would be comical if it weren’t so ridiculous.
