Federal Election and Reduced Blog

I will be busy campaigning for the Pirate Party of Canada during the upcoming Federal Election. As a result, I won’t be blogging as much on this site until the election is done. I would like to encourage everybody to check out Pirate Party of Canada’s website and each of the Candidate’s site.

Harper’s Reinvigorating Ill-Fated Party Funding Cut Might Be a Sign of Election Readiness

This news about Harper not backing down (in getting rid of financing for political parties) might be a sign that he is ready for an election. Harper’s last attempt to end state funding for political parties in 2008 had lead to the opposition uniting, and his government nearly fell. The opposition party, who were having difficulty raising funds in sharp contrast to the Conservative, saw that as a serious threat. Harper ended up backtracking to save his government. Pundits claimed he might have underestimated the opposition at that time. Harper’s government have just been re-elected for 6 weeks and almost became the shortest government in Canada’s history.

So Harper’s re-introduction of that proposal, and taking a hard stand, could indicate he does not mind having an election soon.
