  1. my favorite party by far is the green party. I very sadly feel like I cannot vote for them because it would be a wasted vote. I think a lot of people feel this way. I bet if everyone who felt this way actually voted for them they may actually have a fighting chance to make a difference in this country.

  2. This entire debate revolves around the first subject: Economy. That segment of the debate was a tell-all; for the reason that it displayed just how corrupt Harper is. He made efforts to use simple misdirection tactics and outright avoided huge issues that were brought up as questions in rather simple conversation… Harper has quite obviously developed some good pals in high places and is really only looking out for them, at this point. He is an aristocratic capitalist, and his only goal is to stay in office. Not only for himself, but for his commitments he has made overseas. Harper cannot lose this election because it would cause further recession and turmoil within our country. With that being said; we Cannot allow for his cancerous regime to endure. We have to bite the bullet as a country, and we have to elect someone/anyone who has the capabilities to alleviate this country of its Massive debts and of course the aforementioned commitments. Canada is a respectable country on an international level, and this is not because of Harper. It is because of its people. The people need this beautiful country back. Do us all a favour: do not vote for Harper.

    My personal vote? Doesn't matter. Make your own decision, but ensure it is an educated, informed, and intelligent decision.

  3. Well Yes Stephen Harpers Plan is kind of failing for money but for education its pretty good. But what Justin wants rich people paying more, Just to say the rich people worked hard FOR the money but if wealthy people became poor there will be NO MORE RICH PEOPLE so then the middle class has to PAY more since wealthy people arent there! SO justin Has a weird logical thinking mind also, Justin doesnt really care about SEX ED which is bad… By the way he posted a NACKED WOMEN WITH HIM IN THAT PIC! SO STUPID! BTW dont judge me im just in grade 4

  4. My Perspective…

    Lots of good points but what happens afterwards? All of these parties are not fighting for Canada they are fighting for their own greed and misplaced ego. All of them are manipulating numbers, providing vague information and ignoring evidence of their own failures instead of working towards a way in which to fix them.

    The smear campaigns reveal an increasingly dangerous form of infighting that tarnishes our decreasing ability to settle scores amicably whilst not ultimately bringing our nation down a shit hole. Regardless of who wins we all lose something vital, it's plain and simple. The Government should be for the benefit of the country and it's people's future not for a temporary surplus of yes we can'ers and the establishment of potential super corporations which can fund the uprisings of seperatist groups.

    Hearing Mulcair's revealment of numbers, May's points, Trudeau's counter arguements and Harper's lies makes me realize that none of these businessmen should be given the seat of prime minister until they have their priorities straight.

    POSTPONE THE ELECTION UNTIL THEY KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE DOING!
    (Analysing numbers, the information of reality, working on practical concepts and putting them into effective action… I dont think giving funding to big tele-broadcasting based corporations, quadruple taxing the middle and triple taxing the rich will do anything good for us in the long run. It will just leave more people in debt with the next generation left behind to pick up the mess like always.)

    Consider bill c51 encourages more security over the right to self-defense and with the greater funding and access to communications companies and equipment. Just read about the bill itself and take a look at what ndp and liberals have been saying. Shit can go down buddy.
    Information regarding terrorism can be planted anywhere at anytime in order to make the population paranoid and encourage the rise of increasingly radical groups. Especially those that are on the rise across Europe and a certain seperatist group here in Canada.
    The safest bet in that regard would be a complete revision of, or the elimination of c51 itself. Unless nothing gets done in the end…we are all screwed anyways…

    Correct me if I am missing something, but what exactly has each party done that ultimately benefits it's respective province/sector of influence???

  5. if voting changed anything in their plans to enslave us,we would not have the right to vote ! Think about it !!!

  6. Justin said that his only class tonight is lowering taxes, but you didn't even know the questions. Therefore, you can't prepare for this speech and so did the others. So either the host is cheating or Justin is a mind reader.

  7. CANADA IS A FUCKING NAZI PLACE .
    I am going to change it –

    Even if I have to bum fuck every politicians asshole with my little finger myself .
    If I rip it to bad !
    YES ; IT MAY HURT ….

    I am going to make you all pay .
    The world will look at Canadians like there fucking retarded
    well they fucking are !

    Disability applications do not belong in the GOVERNMENTS trash can
    But everything Else YOU OWN DOES .
    that is where your going !

  8. Trudeau – Seems like his goal was more to bash Harper than to really talk about the issues.
    May – Was the most reasonable and well thought out speaker of the lot. She knows her facts and was clear.
    Mulcair – Seemed to be lacking articulation and also seemed focused on taking out Harper.
    Harper – Just sounded like he was manipulating facts and trying to articulate his points in a way that was narrow and focused on making himself look good instead of facing up to the reality of our country.

  9. what a ridiculous clown show, they all say the opposite and chime in with "let me give you the facts".. like the facts are what comes out of my mouth,,, I can't vote for any of them I don't want a government, 99% of my life i self-govern, i'm just a man

  10. hey maybe Canada should print it's own money and not pay interest on the money we let private banks print for us and lend to us with interest. Maybe that would help the deficit

  11. I love the debate they all have on the environment vs bitumen etc. We already know who actually runs the show on the topics anyways. They sound like a bunch of puppets to the grander schemes… unfortunately..

  12. Lol the 35:39

    Justin Trudeau: Mr. Harper! Nobody belieeeves you!

    Then.. at 36:69

    Steven Harper: The truth is greenhouse emissions have actually gone down
    Elizabeth May's scoff in the end <- this describes how I felt perfectly

  13. 4 Kids fighting over the first transaction at the candy store. If we had all 4, they would all be on the spot to fix this country's issues. Instead of voting for the lesser of 2 (or in this case 4) evils. It's time for a change never seen before.

  14. So nothing to say about the unnecessary high cost of housing due to foreign ownership and excessive internal hording. No matter how good the economy is it means nothing if rents and mortgage debt remain too high. Confiscate foreign owned real-estate and share the land.

  15. Wow, all seems to boil down to who appears to lie the least and give some semblance of trust for the position… Harper fails famously, and yes that fake smile is almost sinister… the rest at least pose some degree of honesty… or so it would appear…?

  16. Why can't Elizabeth May get with a real party, we need her as our Prime minister she is smart, clear, thoughtful, fair, she is the only person on that panel that has any idea what she is talking about, she is the only one that spoke truthfully and was believable
    Trudeau – spoke fluff
    Harper – Liar
    Mulcair – Fake and kinda creepy

  17. None of them are worth voting for. Liberals and NDP will kill the economy with big spending, and Harper is pro war and pro drug war.

  18. I hope we can at least maintain or slightly grow our nation. Whoever takes office will either lay a good foundation for the next party or run the country into the ground.

  19. It looks like the people of province of Ontario are ready to be ripped off by yet another Liberal government. The people of Ontario love handing their hard earned money to the crooked federal and provincial Liberal governments and no matter how poorly they run things Ontario will vote them back in. Does no one remember the previous Liberal federal government that funnelled huge amounts of money to Quebec for years amid scandal after scandal. Now the spoiled brat whos never worked a day in his life is going to get the reins of power if we don't vote against him.

  20. NDP Mulcair: User pay, carbon tax…. doesn't that only punish citizens who's homes are rural, like the farmers? People who use transit in cities still benefit from the effects of fossil fuels right? How does food get to your grocery stores? clothing? Therefore the cost of promoting green energy shoulod be the finacial responsibility and burden of everyone

  21. Having higher taxes, especially for the rich is one of the best things I've heard. With higher taxes the government could fund healthcare, education, programs,infrastructure and more… So technically we would be having a better quality life.

  22. oh shit. how long has harper been wearing that stupid Canadian flag pin on his lapel? W. Bush started this trend after 9-11 when he manipulated the American people into believing they are not patriotic if they don't agree with his fucked up policies. Ever since then, all politicians in the states wear a flag pin so they don't appear less patriotic. I didn't know Canada got sucked into this trend of manipulation as well.

  23. So as some people already mentioned, it is apparent that all the "facts" these leaders are presenting contradict each other. What is the truth? This debate is utterly useless to me if I don't know who's lying and who's not. Someone help me out here!

  24. I am not voting Conservative for a lot of reasons that involve our economy and our environment
    I am also not voting Liberal because Justin Trudeau is pretty much Stephen Harper's lap dog (a.k.a his bitch) by supporting Bill C-51
    So NDP for the win

  25. I'm voting for Trudeau just because he's legalizing weed and Harper wants to keep it banned so he can keep locking up minorities for using a harmless drug and still stands for freedom. It doesn't matter because youths will still get their hands on it. Look at Colorado, marijuana use under for people under 18 has actually declined. So yeah Harper thanks for pointlessly restricting our freedoms

  26. Please Please people choose whats right and vote Liberal! Just the other day i was talking to my friend and she told me her dad was gonna lose his job if NDP won and they would be unable to pay rent anymore and be in trouble! I just cant see how this is fair for a hard working Canadian Please everyone vote Liberal!

  27. ok honestly I like the NDP because u have to actually look different places other than debates I know that the NDP is a good party

  28. How is Elizabeth May so great! I can't vote for anyone else anymore. Calling out the Conservatives creative accounting at 16 minutes.

  29. The Canada – China trade deal is shit. Now Chinese corporations can sue the Canadian government for passing laws that prevent them from making a profit. Say goodbye to laws that protect the environment and workers rights. E. MAY at 26 minutes tells it like it is.

  30. If I was old enough to vote, I would without hesitation give my vote to Justin Trudeau. 🍁 πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ πŸ‘πŸ»

  31. I barely got to hear Elizabeth May speak.. Can everyone please stop talking over each other. Harper and Trudeau are always talking at the same time, I can't hear anything.

  32. The host should not add his own personal opinions to the conversation… for example, saying that the Fair Elections Acts is "full of surprises" is simply not appropriate.

  33. None of these fucking idiots except maybe may and even then the chances of her getting elected is small. Strategic voting it is. ABC babeh let's do it.

  34. So I'm back to watch another 15-20 minutes of this. I hope it stops being the Trudeau vs Harper show. As much as I admire Mr. Trudeau, I'm tired of the debate being essentially Harper vs. Trudeau

  35. On average, every six days a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner (Canadian Women’s Foundation). Do you want to do something to change their life?

  36. I don't care what anyone thinks, but compared to ANY of the republican candidates down south, our politicians are frigging political geniuses. As much I didn't like Harper, he's Sir John A MacDonald, compared to any of those clowns especially that vulture lady and Mr. T, and another Bush. Are you serious?! lol
    (the fact that Trump is running makes me so much prouder to be Canadian.)

  38. 2:51:00 This map showed a preview of the inevitable election results that year. It's all about the anti-Harper vote, so Canadians were willing to screw the NDP in favour of the Liberals.

  39. Water prices will rise. Learn to conserve water. Nation wise a country must lower it's water consumption.

  40. Looking back on this from 2018, I'm so happy and proud that we can have this level of seriousness in debates in this country. It's leaps and bounds ahead of what we saw in the US during the 2016 election, especially the Republican primary debates.

  41. As I look back…. I had more spending cash in my pockets when Harper was pm. Trudeau taxes the middle class and gave billions to foreign counties.
