A Federal election will be here on May 2nd and what a day it will be.  Many people wonder if Canada will have a majority government.  These are the questions being asked in cyberspace one day after the election was announced.  It didn't take long for that to emerge, one day after the election was announced we have our first results being reported.   

Stephen Harper is the person Canadians would most trust as their Prime Minister, beating Jack Layton by 15 points and Michael Ignatieff by 32 points.  In federal politics, that much of a lead is like watching Secretariat win the Preakness for the Triple Crown.  But polls don't count, they inform.  At the end of the day, Canadians will decide, and so it should be.
No matter what anybody says, I'm sure of one thing.  We will be able to campaign and vote during the Spring... some distance from the brutal -30 temperatures that would make it quite difficult for people to participate.  
This is a great country and Canadians are a great people.  Whatever the results on May 2nd, this nation will continue to lead on the World stage.  And all of us who can vote should do precisely that.  Whatever you believe, exercise your democratic right to vote.  That privilege has been paid for with the blood of our ancestors.  Let us not allow their sacrifice to be in vain, it is our duty to honour them by deciding who will lead our nation in the days and years ahead.  Vote CANADA - On May 2nd, 2011 - do your duty.  Information regarding voting can be found here:
