Possible POV(s)[edit]

  • 1. ...and general public perception of being plagued by internal corruption.
  • 2. This ends an unusually long campaign and also an unusually bitter one...
I agree that all these points are POV except #2 -- it has been an extremely bitter campaign and it's obvious to anyone. this can be backed up just by looking at the liberal/conservative party websites which have the TV ads on them. sinblox (talk) 18:41, 24 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That may be the case, however, the statement in its current form suggest that its a personal point of view. Jason Safoutin 18:45, 24 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Re "unusually long campaign": This statement is incorrect. The Parliament's website has a list of the length of all campaigns. At 55 days, this campaign was just over average (the average of all campaigns being 51.54 days) and below the average of the 10 campaigns before 1993 (averaging 58.2 days). The 1997, 2000 and 2004 campaigns were each unusually short, being 36 days each. You have to go back to 1904 to find shorter campaigns than that (35 and 29 days in each of 1904 and 1900). The longest campaign in Canadian history was the 1926 campaign at 74 days. I have removed the incorrect statement. Andy 2006-24-01
  • 3. This must be seen as a depressing blow to Duncan,...
  • 4. ...and was seen as likely being part of Stephen Harper's cabinet. (possibly speculation??)

Jason Safoutin 14:43, 24 January 2006 (UTC) point number two would be true imho, but I don't think that makes it neutral.They were also mean to the ndp. Anyone know who the other is? Bawolff ☺☻Smile.png 16:55, 24 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I've attempted to address the POV issues that were brought up. Not sure what to do about #2 barring just removing it, if anyone could try a hand at fixing it, that'd be good. sinblox (talk) 18:53, 24 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • plagued by scandals in its last months.

thats not exactly true. although they had the memory of the scandal hanging over there head, the government (as in paul martin) was not implicated in the gomry report (as far as i can tell). Bawolff ☺☻Smile.png 16:55, 24 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]

As A Canadian in Ontario, *plagued by scandals* would be fitting if you were speaking about the Party itself. but not the P.M.
