I’m only 8 questions into the CBC Ontario Vote Compass and have already tried answering several questions as Neutral because the premise seems so ridiculous. I didn’t continue answering the next 20+ questions since I already don’t think it’ll be worth my while.
The 2 worst questions, in my opinion:
- How much tax should corporations pay? (More, Same, Less, …)
- How much tax should the rich pay? (More, Same, Less, …)
It seems they left out the most important point: for what? I could be in favour of increasing taxes on those groups if it were to reduce the deficit, for example. Whether or not I’d be in favour of an increase for some new government program would depend entirely on what it was.
It’s blatantly obvious which party they associate with each answer, but I don’t even want to answer “Same” as a cop-out because that’s not what it is here.
