...for the latest edition of the Oi! Thump! Election guide! You can find last election's attempt here, here, and here. Anyhoo, mostly to bump up the ol' post count, we're going to give each party it's very own going-over. And, since we're being unbiased and going in alphabetical order (trust us, it's the only unbiased thing about this entire exercise), our first contestant is...
The Animal Alliance Environment Voters Party of Canada
Um, I think I know stuff about their platform already. The entrance to their website, oddly, bears a quote by famous Canadian environmentalist Dwight Eisenhower, but beyond that this is what one would expect of a one-issue environmentalist party. One-issue, and, indeed, one-candidate this time around. They are also (probably) the youngest political party running in this election, having been officially on December 10th of this year.
If this party were an animal, it would be: a harp seal. A baby harp seal, at that.
Position on environmental concerns? Read the party name and figure it out.
Attitude towards our friends to the South? Probably not huge Bush supporters, but they spend so much time hatin' on the Liberals that it's hard to tell.
Percent likelihood that they'll try to repeal gay marriage? 0.3%. The .3 is in case they're religiously whacky environmentalists (they do exist, you know), but I'm not seeing much sign of that.
Is Oi! Thump! voting for them? Oi! Thump! does not live in Toronto Centre, so it's kind of moot. However, if they were running a candidate in our area, they'd make the short list at least. We like animals.
Tune in tomorrow, when we "discuss" the Bloc Quebecois.
