I became very busy with work and holidays and have been a negligent blogger–but better at least say something today.

I just hope that the Conservatives do not get a majority.  If the world’s current financial crisis has taught us anything, it’s that unregulated capitalism and short-term thinking can get you into trouble.  The UK and US are worst hit by this with their fully deregulated banking system, while Canada’s heavily regulated (and protected) banks will survive with less problems.  Not saying that Canada is the be all, end all for government policies, but as far as banking is concerned, it seems to be pretty good.

Harper has been trying to introduce a more American system into Canada for a while now.  Surely this financial crisis should point out the dangers in doing that.

No to the Conservatives!
