Because right now Canadian politics is so damn dull.
The Tories are a dull lot. Michael Ignatief hasn't captured my imagination. Jack Layton and the Blocheads are just contemptible.
Can you tell the difference between the policies of the Liberals and the Tories on major issues such as the economy, the environment, federal-provincial relations, the cities, health care or anything else that you might think of?
Neither can I.
