The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Off-topic: Canadian federal election

This site's connection is a little volatile, but after taking a handful of quizzes this afternoon on issues in today's Canadian parliamentary election, I enjoyed this one most. On a variety of issues, it offers platform statements from the four major political parties in Canada, and allows you to pick the one you most agree with. I'm personally a little torn between the top two contenders, as the quiz apparently showed, in that i'm probably ideologically closest to the incumbent Liberals and their mostly centrist government, but am dissatisfied with their past scandals. Were I able to vote in a riding, it would likely come down to the specific candidates rather than the national party figures. I scored:

Four Conservative Party platform positions
-Health Care
-Parliamentary Reform
-Education
-Provincial Relations

Four Liberal Party platform positions
-Employment Insurance
-Taxes
-Economy
-Environment

Three Bloc Québécois platform positions
-Early Childhood
-National Defence
-Gun Control

One New Democratic Party platform position
-International Aid
