While Paul Martin had an excellent record as Finance Minister of Canada(Taking the Canadian Government out of a deficit position for many years), it was a mistake calling an election before the "sponsorship scandal" was handled completely. For those who don't know, various Liberal administrators and politicians ripped the Canadian taxpayer off for over 100 million dollars. Find out more on this issue from the link below.
The Liberals have slipped badly in the polls primarily on this issue which hasn't been atequately handled by Paul Martin, the present Prime Minister of Canada.
I don't know who I'm going to vote for at this point, but I'm leaning towards the Conservatives.
The Sponsorship Scandal
Canada's Prime Minister
Stephen Harper And The Conservatives
