I don't need a quiz to tell me which party to vote for. The whole concept is downright idiotic. Besides, I am refusing to vote until we have a meaningful national debate about electoral reform.

I wasn't surprised by my results. Let's just say that Harper and May were in last place.

I agree that it isn't necessary to have a quiz to determine one's most closely matched party. However, this is a game that the media is playing. My question is how are they using the information? You can bet the conservatives have invaded all of the discussion groups to the point that you can't get a word in edgewise on most of them these days so the progressives don't bother. Then the media comes out with a look at its online communications and suggests that in fact we are becoming conservative.

Cripes even the CBC can't seem to realize when they've been played like a fiddle - look at the Mallick thing for example. Three hundred complaints and some of them were Americans and they pull an article from a CBC.ca website. I hope they received several thousand complaints after the ombudsman's report.

Of course if you know who you will vote for you don't need this quiz, or ones like it.

But the quiz may be interesting and useful to those who have not yet decided, and for those who are curious to see if the party they support actually supports their ideas. There are a lot of people out there who would be surprised that another party actually represents them better than the one they usually vote for.

Yes, the questions are limited. But, as I said above, it could be useful to some people.

Electoral Reform? Well, we know we won't get that under a Conservative or Liberal government. So, get out and vote for the party that stands the next best chance next to them, the NDP (who DO support electoral reform).
