CBC broadcaster Peter Mansbridge gives a 30 minute interview of the four Canadian federal election candidates. The four interviewees include, current PM Stephen Harper (Conservative Party), Opposition Party leader Thomas Mulchair (NDP), Justin Trudeau (Liberal Party) and Elizabeth May (Green Party).

The interviews last from 20-25 minutes with Mansbridge asking roughly the same questions in the beginning of the interview, regarding party policies and intentions of each Candidate as Prime Minister.

Ooh. This should be designated the official Canadian Election thread. Unfortunately I know very little about Canadian politics. However, of what I do know the current Canadian PM, Stephen Harper, who's been in charge since 2006, is of the Conservative Party.
Considering that certain Canadian generals have gone so far as to freaking ask the U.S. if the two countries could merge militaries, I think Canada could benefit from asserting itself a little bit more in the face of U.S. dominance. And considering that in 2012 the average Canadian family paid 40% of its income in taxes to the Government, the country would probably benefit from smaller government.
That being said, if all this persists with the Conservative guy having been in power for 9 years now, I don't think he'll fix it with another term.

Could you please name these generals? I've never heard of this.

All I can tell you is that Trudeau is a man child who's hardly worked a day in his life. Putin will eat him alive if this clown is allowed to become Prime Minister. Look at what Wynne and Mcguinty did to Ontario and you will see the future of Canada as a whole. Guaranteed.
May is insignificant
Mulclair is a conservative in socialist's clothing . His party is infested with separatists, but that will change because he won't get the seats in Quebec with his support of the Islamist niqab nonsense. He's done.

Harper is as steady as it gets. Haven't really trusted him completely since he pasted that phony smile on his face many years ago, after he was told he didn't smile enough. He's the best we got, though. I like his support of Israel and his anti niqab, anti Islamist, (not necessarily Muslim) stance.

Unfortunately for Canada, boy Trudeau may win a minority government because of Harper fatigue. He'll be propped up by the NDP and then....say goodbye to your standard of living and watch Canada capitulate to the agenda of a one world government through the UN. How very sad.

Because the presidential race is all fluff until they crown the chosen president. Unfortunately Americans vote but don't get the guy they voted for. Remember Bush was given the presidency even when Gore actually won.

I disagree, the public would demand a person like this if we had similarly educated populations.

Americans usually do get the guy that the majority voted for, however with the electoral college system, a vote from a person in a small state can count a little more than a vote from someone in a large state.
This system may stop the presidents from forgetting about the needs of people who live in a small state, but it sometimes will result in a man becoming president when the other guy got more votes. This can make it appear that he is not the legitimate leader of our republic.
For example President George Bush II. He became president when the supreme court decided there would not be a recount of the votes in the state that was governed by his brother, and we were forced to believe that he won.
In the years after his term of office, it became apparent that the majority of American voters would not really have chosen that idiot.
In America men who win a general election in a year ending with zero die, or are shot before their term of office has ended.
1800 - the election is a tie with Jefferson getting the same number of electoral votes as his opponent. Congress made him president.

1820 - James Monroe was very very popular in his 1st term, when up for re-election he ran unopposed

1840- William Henry Harrison wins the election, but dies a few months later.

1860 - Lincoln ,shot

1880 - Garfield ,shot

1900 - McKinley ,shot

1920 - Harding , food poisoning

1940 - Franklin Roosevelt, he kept getting re-elected until he died of old age. n.b. the other president Roosevelt did win the vice presidency in 1900 was shot too but he survived.

1960 - Kennedy ,shot

1980 - Reagan , shot , but survived, may have died an was revived on the operating table, but if he did, this will be kept secret so Hinckley will not know he succeeded.

2000 - George W claimed victory He is still alive so we can assume that there must be more voters in Florida chose him. n.b. He did not bet that he could win if they did a do-over with the old fashioned voting machines.

2020 - If someone wins in 2016 and does well, he will be running for re-election in 2020. Should he win then, he won't live long enough to retire. Notice how nobody who is really electable is trying to get in that election?

I would vote for Mansbridge if he defected to America and ran as an independent.

Mansbridge is the best reporter the CBC has right now. He's covered 14 election including last night's, the first one being in 1972. It was pretty funny, they showed a montage of his election coverage, which could also be called "watch Mansbridge's hair disappear over 43 years."
