Forget about Obama v. Mcain. Canada is heading the polls this coming Tuesday and it’s shaping up to be a doozy.

Just like George W (used synonymously with Stephen Harper) the Liberals and NDP parties are pushing the ‘sky is falling‘ syndrome to panicky Canadians touting the all imminent collapse of the financial sector in Canada. Turns out, they’re probably very wrong.
