Long election campaign is motivation

Plans to vote on Oct. 19, but just not sure for whom

Editor, The News:

Yes, 78 days for an election campaign is way too long and will cost us the taxpayer/voter more millions of dollars thanks to Stephen Harper.

Every time I see one of those Harper attack ads, I know why I won’t be voting for the Harpercons.

I now have to go out and find a candidate to vote for as I will be going out to vote.
