2 years of campaigning? wow, that sounds awfull, hope the money needed don't come from the citizens' taxes.
The average election in Canada costs between 250 and 300 million dollars, which has pissed a lot of canadians off.
There really isn't any sort of major issue that stands out, other than the PM being disgruntled that all of the other political parties can't stand his politics and his consistent push towards privatization, smaller government, fewer social programs, lowering taxes while not addressing budget shennanigans.
