    That is understandable. Normally people would have voted for NDP, but they hate Conservative the most. Anything to keep Conservative out or at bay as long as possible. Right time for Justin Trudeau to cash in.

    Yeah likely that Trudeau will turn out to be a dud. Harper just focussed on the wrong things in the past few weeks, and people just voted for Trudeau to get rid of Harper.

    Immigrants (I am one and voted Liberal at the last minute) think Justin will be some messiah and turn their lives around just because they can roam around in niqabs and bring in more of their folks.

    This is the same guy who supported C-51. As an economist, the only thing I care about him is to bring back the mandatory long form census. We badly need the data for government policy formulation.

    Maybe the Conservatives should just not let the Liberals function for the next 5 years by keeping them embroiled in useless controversies.

    Everyone is delighted in general, not just south Asians. Steven harper was so bad and he needed to be out. Justin seemed good so that just boosted his rating. He is also very likable, his promises aren't too bad. Never scared the public about being attacked by Isis it any thing like that.Not expecting him to become the next god or anything, but I'd give him a go.

    Those are the ones who had just arrived here. They had spent most of their years back home so they can't connect with Canada.These people feel that they are entitled to everything because it is not their home and rules nees ti suit them. But lot of people accept what Canada has done to them offering new home, provided healthcare, education and overall a better lifestyle. We are proud of our basketball team, ice hockey teams, baseball teams and our country. We respect Canada. I can't see myself not support Canada while Canada plays another country in a sport like the British Indians, British Pakistanis when England plays Australia lol. The fobs(fresh of the boats) are probably not even citizens to vote. They have no say. They are only good for racking up benefits. Many Asians actually care about Canada.

    Justin Tredeau accepts niqab, recognizes, diversity of languages, cultures, religions and practices.

    Exact same argument my friend gave who is in Canada as well but the bias among brown people in North America is well there because the head of the family is usually biased.

    No that's not really the case. Lots of people, desis and otherwise, are here from Ontario/Quebec. Common perception is that people here don't know much about the bill c51/24. Moreover they don't care to do proper research on why they are voting for Harper. It's wire if mouth that conservatives are good for the Alberta economy. Which I would say is complete **. Just lack of research and reasoning involved. That's all

    Yes I know what you mean, but people from the prairies which are predominately 'ethnic whites' are not worried about being second-class citizens because they don't fit the criteria, hence they don't care about Bill C51 in the first place. Besides the premier of Alberta is an NDP, oddly enough, so its not always about 'Conservatives are good for the economy' notion.

    You can't generalize like that, id say people who talk bad about Canada and not appreciate what Canada has done to them are probably around 30% and most of them had arrived here within the last few years.

    Thing is Albertans were tired of Conservative premier, Redford. So they voted for NDP, considering they are not big liberal fans. They wanted change. And now, after Stephen Harper took a jab at NDP during the campaign, they went back to conservatives. Sheeples man, nothing else. As I said they don't know about Bill C51/24. Lots of Irish here. They just don't do their research.

    I was poking fun at a friend who is a tory supporter. I told him, we have NDP Premier and a Liberal Federal Govt. This is the most un-conservative Alberta has ever been. lol

    This guy is always around at every major event. I've seen him myself in at least 3 different events within the last 2 years. He's been campaigning for the last 3 years if you honestly ask me. At least he looks genuine unlike Steven Harper lol. Saw the Bhangra dance still lol.

    But you see, Bhangra only works when you've consumed copious amounts of Bhang. Seriously, etymologically speaking, the dance derives its name from the herb, because at the shrines the malangs are known to partake in both.

    No wonder Trudeau wants to legalize it.

    That is what I thought of as well. Vote liberal as an immigrant and conservative as a native.

    It is not hypocrisy. You vote according to the time and place you are in. Voting is your way to maximize your best interests. As an immigrant, your best interests are in a open, liberal, multicultural society. As a native, your interests are in protecting your status quo and hold on resources and power.

    Jagmeet. There are no reasons to vote for Trudeau unless you're a Syrian refugee or a crack head but he's better than other candidates. Andho mein kana raja.

    I would have voted Trudeau but I'm out of the country this year. Any minority voter picking Scheer are just shooting themselves in the foot. Once the PCs are in power, they will cut immigration, raise Islamophobia, and run the country like a bunch if white frat boys (thats essentially who they are).

    I wish there was a better option but Trudeau it is for now.

    This was the main reason why I voted for Trudeau in 2015. I wanted stephen Harper out due to him making a mockery of a non-issue (Niqab Ban).

    Conservatives have learned their lesson since the visible minority is now the visible majority (LOL). They need to get away from white fascism that has plagued USA these days, which Sheer did.

    I always liked their economic policies more. Reduce spending to reduce taxes, introduce business friendly environment, more jobs. Unfortunately, liberals historical record is pretty bad when it comes to job creation and wealth. The deficit they have of $20B is coming from our pockets in taxes (including the silly carbon tax). Canada has been a net absorber of Carbon emissions, and yet we are paying so much in carbon tax (on top of so many other taxes). This week, i paid my monthly electricity bill that had a carbon tax 300% more than my consumption bill. I honestly have had it enough. If i am to stay in Canada i need a prosperous career and longevity. That can only happen under the conservatives, not liberals or NDP (No Direction Party).

    With that being said, i am also admitting that Liberals have done well socially though, no doubt about it. But they were as bad in their economic policies, as good they were socially.

    No govt in the history of Canada has cut immigration. It has been at 300,000, constant, even during the Harper era.

    Islamophobia was an issue under the PCs, but no govt in their right mind would dare this, considering majority voter banks are minorities now. The current PCs have gone away from the silly harper policies. Harper was an idiot. Someone like him even mentioned in his book that he can use Conservatives as his personal tool. No wonder he failed to beat Trudeau. I talked about this in my previous post as well.

    Seems like Canadian voters face the same problems as elsewhere in the world - on one hand they demand better public services, a more socially conscious government, action on climate change and pollution etc......yet when it comes to paying for all of these things no one wants to pay the extra taxes.

    Harper brought the far right party and conservative together. I met a rural Canadian in my college, he was conservative/backward as people from the subcontinent. It was shocking to see that we were more closer.

    I wonder if any Canadian Govt will reduce the taxes, it is just too much. What is the incentive for people to work hard if at $140,000 plus 50% of their income will be taxed?

    Savings in the country is a big problem not because of the cost of living and utilities but primarily because of the taxes. IMO it should be a maximum of 30%.

    I know a lot of business owners who are extremely frustrated with the Trudeau govt, they raised the minimum wage in Ontario to $14-15/hr, they raised personal taxes and have now gone after holding companies, dividends and overall guys who used to make a lot of money are now being forced to pay 50% in tax. If i was a small business owner, i personally would not be happy with the Trudeau government.

    Trudeau didnít raise the minimum wage, Wynne did as it is a provincial matter. Instead of raising it slowly, she made a huge jump from 11 to 14 in a year or so. It was due to go up to $15 this January but then Ford happened. Minimum should be $15, imo.

    Everything in Canada is taxed and you are given benefits by income. If you make a lot, you pay a lot. Its a fair system but I agree taxes should be brought down. Canada is a super power in natural resources. Need to build more pipelines and develop more resources.

    Anyone making 140k income will NOT get 50% of their income taxed, or anywhere near that number. The real number is around 26-28%. You might be mixing up marginal tax rate with effective tax rate. Marginal tax rate at 140k might be 50% or close to it, but that is the rate you are paying on any additional income after 140k. The effective tax rate at 140k income will be around 26-28%.

    Very well said and I completely agree when it comes to Pipelines. The regulatory process is an overkill. Compare that with US, they have a network of piplines and we can see the economic progress there. Not to mention, lesser taxes.

    The country collects a lot in taxes via direct and indirect taxation i.e. Personal, Corporate, HST. 50% is too excessive, people should be allowed to save money and meet their other needs. The Canadian govt does not cover each any everything, like Health Care is alleged to be free but is it really if you are paying 40-50% in taxes and on top of that have huge waiting lists, line? Secondly OHIP does not cover things like dental, chiropractic care, therapy, counselling, home health care, for those you still have to pay out of your pocket and Private Health Insurance is hard to get by.

    Plus not many salaried people can easily get to $120,000-140,000 plus over their life times, its a lot tougher now. I have met many people making $120,000 plus who complain about finding it tough to buy a house. Your other spouse should ideally have the same amount of income as well now.

    The people i have seen in Canada who have really done very well financially and are living comfortably are entreprenuers but how many people have the temprament to be an entreprenuer? I personally wish a Canadian govt comes along and makes easier for the Salaried Individual. I understand this is a welfare country but don't make it all about tax, tax, tax after a while.

    The Federal and Provincial adds up to 40% plus, you are on the hook for Property Taxes as well. If you add up all the tax liability in comparison to your income for the year, it is approximately 50%. My dad and uncle all complain about this and grudge that this is what the Liberal Trudeau govt has done to them. I imagine a lot of other Salaried folks to be in the same boat.

    The guy means good, but the way he goes about his policy, makes donald trump look like a pro.

    Let me give you an example. He placed the carbon tax in place to save the planet. Where do you think in home Canadian companies are heading over too? China! Canada is part of this planet, air is going to carry the pollution around the whole world. It's a good cause, feutile attempt where common tax payers are paying from their pocket. We don't have a mass electric car support around the world/too expensive to buy electric cars. Gas price in ontario jumped from 70-90cent to 1.30-1.50 within the last 2 month. Quebec, less said the better. I 100% support save the planet movement, but not the way he is doing it. WTV good he thinks he achieved will be overturned comes next election because it's not working. There are many other examples such as this, where he thinks he did good, but in practice it's going horribly wrong. Immigration issue comes to mind.

    All in all, he likes to please people with his words, not with his work. It sucks cause I usually vote Liberal but am not a student anymore after this year, can't vote for an irresponsible Prime minister like him.

    It is actually not 40% plus, it is slightly less than 30%. Property taxes are a different beast. Compared to what I have seen elsewhere (e.g. most of the US), they are fairly low at around $300-400 a month. Outside of the middle east, Canada actually has fairly low taxes. You might find a few states in the US that do better in terms of income tax and property tax. Florida doesn't have a state tax and the property taxes are very low. California OTOH has higher income tax and higher property taxes.

    The conservatives have always been racist (e.g.the previous prime minister Harper, Ontario's premier Doug Ford and Alberta's premier Jason Kenney).

    The main reason that people from the sub-continent are in Canada is because of Justin Trudeau's father, Pierre Trudeau. He welcomed brown immigrants as a liberal leader unlike previous conservative governments who favoured immigration from white European countries. Pierre Trudeau accepted thousands of Ismaili/Asian refugees from Uganda after Idi Amin kicked them out in 1972. This is very similar to the Syrian refugees that Justin Trudeau accepted recently.

    So if you appreciate being in Canada, you can thank Justin Trudeau and Pierre Trudeau by voting liberal.

    Ford has hurt the Conservatives chances in Ontario. Second-worst approval ratings among all premiers.

    Schreer is already a below-par candidate and Ford has made things worse. It'll be interesting to see what happens as election season ramps up.

    Ford has created new pressure points that will surely be pressed and highlighted by the Liberals.

    Interesting point of view and something we see all over the world.

    Left wing government makes it easier for immigrants to move to a particular country yet as soon as said immigrant becomes wealthy enough they switch their allegiances to the party offering the most tax cuts even if that party is anti immigrant.

    Will be voting this year. Trudeau was good but this guy is too much of a liberal. He messed up with Syrian refugees big time. Most of the refugees don't get the treatment as the one syrian refugees did. They didn't need to stay at hotels like bro. Come on.

    Most immigrants are conservatives, in the past immigrants voted for liberal cause they are the one that gave us life....supposedly. But Liberal is now much more to the left that even immigrants aren't liking it. Conservatives are becoming popular once again, their view is similar to those of immigrants anyway lol. Also the new gen conservatives aren't bigots or racists. The big bad wolfe is no longer muslims. It is now Indians. Brampton is 80% Indians, the driving quality is absolutely nuts and when you need some fraud work done ? You go to an Indian guy. Indians participate in mortgage frauds, income tax frauds and etc. It is not like other culture participate but Indians get targeted. Mocking Indians or Brampton is the new trend. Everyone joins together to hate on Brampton. We are the jokers, we are laughing stock. It also doesn't help when broke Indian students hit on random girls with their Dodge Challengers and Benz with blasting Punjabi music that they can't afford. Russell Peters joke may have been funny, but it has done more damage than anything.

    Can't wait for GT20 to take place in Brampton lol. Wonder what others have to say about that.
