After Meeting Local NDP Candidate I Can’t Vote in Federal Election by Jamie Gilcig – AUG 20, 2015 #CDNPOLI

This has to be the weirdest Federal election I’ve lived through.    I’m now a hyper partisan voter.  No more party allegiances for me.

The problem is that in this race the one leader I’d lean towards I’ve lost all faith in.    Nor do I see that much separating the three main parties. Yes, there’s a glimmer here and there, but mostly it’s party rhetroric.  They all seem to be behaving in the same manner.

Focusing locally in my home riding there is no real chance I can vote for MP Guy Lauzon based on his lack of support for our riding.  He clearly has chosen his own partisan path over that of his overall constiency.

Bernadette Clement?  For a woman that spouts it’s time for change she sure acts a lot like Guy Lauzon.

Patrick Burger?  I had a glimmer of hope until meeting him yesterday.   He turtled and frankly lost his one chance to show that he had any personal integrity and was worthy of my vote.

Yes, I could vote Green, but I’m not sure I’d want to.

At best I’m an undecided voter.  As much as I’d hate not to vote as I believe it should be mandatory I honestly am not sure which way to go.

I don’t expect perfection from a party, leader, or candidate, but I do hold out for some leadership skills and worthiness of getting my vote.

In this election I, like many voters, feel utterly helpless as the most important issues for me are not being spoken to Nationally or locally.    I don’t feel any of the main three represent anything near what I hope for Canada and that’s very sad and scary for our Democracy.

Hopefully something changes between now and October 19th.

Are any of you dear CFN viewers feeling this? At least the ones of you that aren’t partisan?
