Canada's upcoming federal election

I intend to vote for the NDP in this upcoming federal election, even though my local candidate probably doesn't have a hope in hell of winning. I like Jack Layton. He's the only political leader in Ottawa that has come out untainted by scandal, and has worked what little influence he has for the most good.

My politics skew leftward. I'm in favor of gay marriage, legalization of marijuana, public health care, increased funding for post-secondary education, and keeping Canada's foreign policy independent of Washington.The NDP is the closest to representing my values, and I hope they do better this time.
