Letter: Voter opts for strategic voting

The fact remains, in our Kootenay-Columbia riding, a vote for anyone other than the NDP is a vote for StephEn Harper.

Dear Editor:

 

The fact remains, in our Kootenay-Columbia riding, a vote for anyone other than the NDP is a vote for StephEn Harper.

Our electoral system is based solely on first past the post, not proportional representation.

The vast majority of us want a government left of the Conservatives. In our riding, only the NDP have a chance of beating the Conservatives and being the first past the post.

Even though my heart is with the Greens and my head is with the Liberals, I will be voting NDP because I cannot stand the thought of my Canada turning into a fear-mongering, anti-immigrant, anti-feminist, non-inclusive, anti-science state that panders to the super rich.

Kind regards,
