    Not sure how many more times I have to tell you, I don’t know who I will vote for yet as no partys have laid out their full platforms.

    Some people vote based off platforms and promises, others just blindly follow party lines. If I was to make an assumption, I would ass-u-me you fall into the latter category (based off the information I have available of course).

    I could certainly be wrong, but I don't remember you ever saying you didn't know who you were going to vote for. Also, you'd be assuming wrong about the latter.

    As I said, I'll acknowledge when I know I'm wrong. Until then, well, let's just say your evasiveness speaks for itself.

    Nope. I'm between 2 parties, and I've never voted for either of them in the past.

    About what? I don't have any issue answering direct questions.

    It was a joke.

    You claimed I was being elusive because I was undecided on my vote.

    So you're actually considering throwing your support behind someone that you say doesn't have leadership skills?

    Sure. I also see faults in the other party leaders.

    Are you claiming you dont see any flaws in either of the party leaders whose party you are thinking about supporting?

    And lets be clear, we are not voting for party leaders when we participate in a Federal election.

    I definitely do. But if I felt the way about someone that you say you do about Singh, they'd immediately be out of the running.

    If that were true, my MP wouldn't have flipped on the things she told me in a personal conversation pre-election. When I've contacted her about these things I receive a form letter in return about how the party is doing what's best.

    So even if you had serious concerns about your local MP, you would still vote for them?

    I can't think of many things that would convince me not to vote for someone that wouldn't disqualify them from running altogether.

    How about an MP who lied to your face and then dismissed your concerns about it?

    At this point I'm a little less naive about a candidates willingness to go against their party's wishes.

    I can see that, their trip though was 2018 they had an opportunity to vaccinate then.

    Its the first big decision parents face and alot feel like they will be burdening medical professionals with questions or maybe they are affriad of feeling stupid. My wife and I had the discussion, we both agreed and were luckily our children were able to get vaccinated.
