Canada Election 2015: What would happen if you combined Harper, Mulcair, Trudeau and truth serum?

Let’s take the ‘job interview’ TV ad a step further. Picture this: The three, major-political-party candidates, for the office of Prime Minister, Harper, Mulcair and Trudeau receive truth serum before they’re asked, “Why are you running, who do you want to help? How will you win? Here’s how I imagine their ‘truthful’ answers would play out:

  1. Stephen Harper – My earnestly-held ideology has compelled me to toil on behalf of Big Oil, major corporations and rich, caucasian Christians. My tactic is fear.
  2. Justin Trudeau – I want to prove that I can live up to my father’s name; I guess you could say, I’m running for myself. My tactics change frequently, I follow the lead of my advisors.
  3. Tom Mulcair – We’re in this together, I will serve all Canadians. Together, we will create the Canada of our dreams! My strategy is experience, educated-common sense and compassion.

Who will you vote for?
