This afternoon an old buddy of mine came over for a visit with his young sons. We got to talking about the election.
He lamented that nothing of any real importance is ever discussed during such campaigns.
On this note I rhetorically asked him whether he had any doubt that the next 10+ days of the election campaign will be consumed with the media mostly talking about whether Lizzie May will be allowed into the debate. Big Whoop!
Do you think such focus on triviality occurs because our journalists are second rate and unable to ask politicians real questions or is it because their market research shows that average Canadians aren't bright enough to care and instead wants the election campaign to be treated like a reality game show?

This is absolutely fascinating:
While it's true that it correctly determined my own political leanings, it's absolutely impossible that a fairly constructed poll could determine the same results when answered in 3 completely different ways. Clearly this poll is rigged and the CBC and Compas must have known this.
It's beyond insulting that the tax dollars of ALL Canadians are being used to support an election device that primarily supports one political party. And the validity of all Compas results must now clearly be questioned.
Much more is being discussed on this at SDA.
