A little too late

Harper's Conservatives are releasing their party platform today. One week before the election. After the advanced polls have all closed.

Today's Globe and Mail says: The Conservative campaign platform has not been revamped to include new measures as a result of the recent market turmoil, party spokesman Kory Teneycke said yesterday.

If you don't have a good reason to revamp the platform, you should not be releasing it this late. Even then you should amend or add to what you've already released. The last platform to be released was on September 28. You've gone nearly the entire election without a plan for the country! Anyone who voted for you in the advanced polls did it on blind trust, and those you could have swayed with your vision for the future were lost. Seems like a poor strategic decision. Maybe that's why the Conservatives have dropped 10 points in the polls.

Another Harper minority?
