don’t vote strategically — unless you’re a conservative

This Magazine Staff

Hoping for a day when everyone’s vote will be counted in a meaningful way, I can’t support the “strategy” of voting for someone you don’t want in order to beat the person you really don’t want. That said Calgary Grit sent me in the direction of this very interesting Strategic Voter guide at Democratic Space.

So, if you ARE being tempted by fear to change your vote, at least check first to see if there’s any point in doing so. For instance, if you are a Conservative living in Trintity-Spadina or Parkdale-High Park, and you truly do despise those corrupt Liberals, with their nasty negative campaigning and untrustworthiness, I guess you’re best choice is to elect the NDP. Thanks for doing that.
