"Where's your platform?"

"Where's your platform? Where's your platform?" they all taunt.

Tuesday... "Harper also said he intends to release his full campaign platform on Tuesday, one week before Canadians go to the polls.".

And of course, will all the other parties fresh out of ideas, their platforms having been release already, guess what's going to dominate the news coverage in the final week of the campaign? That is, unless the Liberals manage to pull out some desperation smear-job, like they have in the last two, err, make that the last four elections.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Harper once again grabs the agenda for the day, announcing that participants of apprenticship programs in Canada will receive a $2,000 bonus upon the sucessful completion of their program... that is, if the Conservatives are re-elected.

"Check... sorry, you can't move that one, cause you're still in check..."

    Maybe the other parties should have been smarter and not released their platforms so soon into the campaign. They have hardly anything to talk about now, and thus have been forced to resort to nothing but smears. The Tories have had been spacing out announcements so they have something to talk about.

    Are people too lazy to click a link to the Conservatives' policy page?

    http://www.conservative.ca/EN/2888

    It has their vision and the main points of their platform

    Did the Australians finally finish writing it for Harper ~zing~

    Or was the delay caused by Harper's "No Fly Zones" and it had be via ground? ~zing~

    Since when does the party in power have to release a platform? They run on thier record, not some goofy pie-in-the-sky scheme that is forgotten 2 minutes after the voting is done.

    Yeah except that a lot of people vote in advance polls, so this is a bit late to give the full platform.
