Election ~ Day One

This is soooooo cool. It doesn't take long and isn't difficult (tick boxes mostly). When you've completed it ~ the tool analyzes your answers and matches you with a party. Reminds me of dating websites

I'd be interested to see what one of our non-Canuck members comes up with and whether that matches the party they might normally vote for in their home country.

Where's Hazel when you need her...

That was a very interesting survey.

I agree with Mx3, it would be kinda neat to see a non-canuck take the survey and reveal their results...eh?

The result it's given me is "null". Guess I'm supposed to vote independent?

Okay, here ya go. Just answer you don't know or don't care and you know nothing about the politicians listed, and it tells you you're conservative. From what you're saying, I think the survey may be skewed, ladies.

But I really couldn't answer most of the questions with any degree of accuracy...in fact, I didn't even know Canada had a military presence in the Arctic. Not sure what that's referring to... And as for the politicians listed, I only recognized about half the names so couldn't make a judgment as to competence or whether I'd vote for them.

OMD--I was thinking the same thing and I live in Canada!

When I got to that question, I was like "huh?" O.K.

Too funny.

I tried it two different ways. First answering all the questions including preferred candidates, party, etc. Second time I put "no opinion for all people and parties.

Came up correct for which party I will vote for and which one I would never vote for both times.

I did it and came up Liberal....which I am, a left leaning Liberal...

I'm surprised to read that some of you were unaware that Canada had a Military presence in the Artic.

it gave me NDP, which is pretty much what I've been thinking. At least Jack Layton has normal looking hair, at least what he has left
