Greymatters said:It is a bit rigged isnt it? Why arent other previous PM's in the list as well?
Why not include Paul Martin, Kim Campbell, John Turner and Joe Clark?
Seeing how unpopular both Mulrooney and Chretien were when they left office, it is quite obvious that Trudeau and Harper are going to be the most popular ones...
PPCLI Guy said:Trudeau was the last visionary leader this country has seen - and hence will probably win (despite our attempts to rig the vote).
Not to say that I agree with all of his vision, but every now and then, an organisation (or a country) needs a visionary. We need one now - and there is none on the horizon, in any of the parties, with the sole exception, perhaps, of Mr Ignatieff.
Wesley Down Under said:I think this new bloke Harper has balls, and is what Canada has needed for a long time. If I was still living in Saskatchewan, he'd have my vote for sure.
fraserdw said:Personally, I do not think we have yet had a good PM. We are a nation founded by a drunk (MacDonald) next a racist (Laurier), a moral coward (Borden), a Lunatic (King), a Yankee *** kisser (difenbaker), an Idealistic fool (Pearson), Trudeau (nuff said) and a thief (Cashroney), then the other thief (Creeptain), next Martin (super leader and Mr Chairman who dithered just long enough to get us our plumb assignment) and I do not feel free to speak ill of a sitting PM. But in between does anyone really remember the names of the rest?
