Election time again. I am feeling a little old – this will be my seventh provincial election. Now I have a little different role – I will be writing three colums a week in the Telegraph-Journal on election topics – Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
It seems to me the defining issue hasn’t really surfaced yet. The various parties are trying to define one but I don’t see an “auto insurance” or a “toll busters” or a “CoR” defining issue as of yet.
The first poll of the election cycle shows 41% undecided and a relatively small spread between the Libs and the Tories.
It’s interesting to note that the NDP, People’s Alliance and the Green Party are expected to be influential. CRA’s poll shows almost 25 per cent of decided voters are planning to send their vote to one of the third parties.
The question is where will they take voters from?
It will be interesting.
