I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. The more involved I get in partisan politics, the more I dislike political parties.
I’ve thought about going to the Federal Liberal leadership convention in Montreal in November, but I just can’t find the interest (and the money of course, how ridiculous is it that it will cost over $1000 to attend as a party delegate). Though I like Gerard Kennedy, and think he would be a better leader for the fedlibs than most of the other options, I’m just not really excited about Federal politics in Canada. Harper is boring (and a Conservative). Layton has a talented caucus, but he seems like a flash-in-the-pan. The only real excitement seems to be coming from Elizabeth May’s election as leader of the Greens.
I still enjoy provincial politics in Alberta and municipal politics in Edmonton though.
I’m just not to hot on the partisaness anymore.
Maybe something will change.
On another note, this is fun.
