The questions on the exam and the definition of "acceptable " answers would be designed and modified to suit the party in power.<br /> One the current government would want to ask is "Who is the god appointed prime minister with the devine right , decided by god ,to run Canada any way he sees fit?" If you don't answer "Harper" you would not qualify to vote , as you would not be considerd sufficiently enlightened nor god fearing.<br /> Brent

Well, if it wasn't for Devine, I likely wouldn't have moved to Winnipeg. This is bit of a pattern in my home province...they wait until the economy is well and vote in some conservatives then, four or eight years later when the province is falling apart again, they bring the NDP back to fix it.<br /> <br />

Suggesting that they get to write a test to determine who may or may not vote is suggesting giving them a lot of power.<br /> Brent

When you move next door to escape the conservatives you should remember , living next door to an asylum is not safe when you have left the patients in charge of the asylum.<br /> Brent

"Suggesting that they get to write a test to determine who may or may not vote is suggesting giving them a lot of power.<br /> exactlly who are they and them <br /> The idea here is for a fully informed electotate to cast a ballot based on a course of studies that quailifies the voter to untilise critical thought to determine <br /> who is worthy of a ballot <br /> As it is any bozo can, and does, cast a ballot<br /> <br />

They and them are the people in power who get to determine the test and what they consider a right answer.<br /> In the USanian deep south they once had an aptitude test for voters. When a black person showed up they were handed a Chinese newspaper and asked to read it. When they couldn't they were considered illiterate and denied the right to vote.<br /> Brent
