"Pollsters: Conservatives' attack ads hurt voter turnout and democracy"

Yeah, and they make children cry too. What a load of horsecrap. Where were these so-called 'pollsters' during the 2004 election when Stephen Harper was called everything but a child molester?

"Many supporters of Canada’s centre-left parties tend to be more idealistic than Conservatives, said Grenville. Idealists, people who dream of a better world, are prone to drop out of the electoral process if they believe it has become corrupt or unethical, Grenville said."

Canada's "centre-left" parties, you will remember, are of course known for their fierce stands against corruption. Conservatives, on the other hand, are known for their prolific hatred of a better future.

Also, from the mouth of the other 'pollster' involved in this farce, Mario Canseco : 

"What's really disheartening
 is it's almost as if everyone's made up their minds already," said the polling firm's Mario Canseco. "Those who actually have something to say about Dion are saying negative things." 

If you check him up on Google, you'll find a slew of articles about polls on mostly left-wing causes. Surprise!

You know whose fault it is if you don't vote? It's yours. End of story. Hell, if you didn't even want to vote for any of the parties you could have gone out and spoiled your ballot - so long as you voted. To make up some cockamamie story blaming the Conservatives for low voter turnout is nothing short of Harper Derangement Syndrome.

Gimme a break.
