    Who do you suggest we vote for?

  2. Not Conservative!

    If you’re one to vote strategically, you can look up your riding here and find out which not-Conservative party got the most votes last election, and vote for them.

    Or you could investigate the parties’ platforms and vote for whoever you determine the best candidate to be, regardless of their chances of winning. This is what I tend to do – mind you, my riding isn’t likely to change hands any time soon.

    I have my preferences, but I’m not going to press them on anybody. The most important thing is that the Conservatives do not win, or at least do not get a majority.
