“You can get more than the average campaign fix, starting tomorrow, with the release of Prime Minister Forever — Canada 2006 … So if you’ve been sitting back in your armchair, grinding your teeth at how the various leaders are handling the hustings, you can find out whether you could do any better.”

“Perhaps the real thing is more or less a game to most Canadians anyway…”

“What makes this strategy game so different — apart from the $18.95 price, versus a few hundred million for the real thing — is that Canadians who want real change, as the polls keep insisting they do, can make all the changes they want to the rats with a few clicks of a mouse.”

The Ottawa Citizen

“High-stakes drama”

“My campaign is faltering. Momentum I had gained in early December, along with my dream of a majority government, has evaporated. On election night, I watch results trickling in, only to find I’ve been shut out. But not for long, I vow: with a surge of determination and the click of a button, my quest to become Prime Minister of Canada begins anew.”
