Part Whatever of the Election Guide
Today we've got the First Peoples National Party of Canada.
Ok, so we've needed a Native voice in Parliament for the longest time (Fun fact: Canadian aboriginals didn't even get the vote until 1961). And, lo-and-behold, the FPNPC has stepped forward! Their platform is predictable, involving raising the status and well-being of Natives in the economic and social spheres, and their platform reads like what Dept. of Indian Affairs ought to be doing. An interesting bunch, to say the least...
If this party were an animal, it would be: I really have no idea.
Position on environmental concerns? Very, very in favour. They actually have enviromentalism enshrined in the "spiritual" section of their platform.
Attitude towards our friends to the South? They're anti-NAFTA, but generally seem fairly friendly.
Percent likelihood that they'll try to repeal gay marriage? Unknown.
Is Oi! Thump! voting for them? No candidate in our riding, but we'd seriously consider it if there were.
Next up, it's the Greenies!
