We Canadians are going to the voting booth on Monday, October 19, 2015. The election campaign seemed to have been forever. I will be glad when it is over. I am wondering if my American friends here were aware of our election? Or do you just follow the American political field?

I admit I was not aware of the Canadian elections. Can you enlighten us on who (or what political party) is favored to win?

It looks like we might have a minority government this time. We will know soon.

@marlina What does that mean for relations with America if you have a minority government in place after this election? I know our two countries are friends, but some political parties are more friendly towards America than others. I just hope that no matter who is in power in either country that we maintain our friendship and close ties.

@moffittjc We are a very friendly country and no matter who is in charge, I can assure you that it will be basically the same as usual.

I have a friend who is actually a Canadian citizen but who lives here on a green card. So she is all about the Canadian elections. I don't follow it at all, as in reality, I don't even follow our politics here either all that much. I just know about what I happen to hear without even trying. I find elections so tiresome, as it's just a lot of hoopla, but nothing ever really changes to everyone's benefit in the end.

@marlina Many do. I've lost interest over the years.

I do enjoy voting although the candidates I vote for never win

I can't say that I am crazy about going to vote, but I am happy that we have that right.
