With only a few weeks away, Canadians are once again going back to the polls to elect our third government in 4 years.

It seems that there is little enthusiasm around my part of the country for any one candidate or issue. The only bubbles of tension I've seen came when Green Party Leader Elizabeth May got black balled from the Party Leader debate. But once Ms. May was granted access to the debates the political passion just kinda fizzled out. Have we become election apathetic in the past few years? Or is the upcoming American election stealing any potential excitement?
