I've NEVER been undecided the day before a Canadian federal election.... ever!
Yet here I sit, it a quandry.
I'm in the unpriviledged position of living in a riding which has traditionally been a very tight race between Tories and Liberals... the Liberals won last time by a margin of less than 4000 votes. I'm scared that if I vote my conscience this time, then me and all the other pissed-off voters will allow for an up-the-middle Conservative win.
And yet, despite my misgivings about their current incarnation, I feel compelled to vote Green...
What to do?
I am hoping to stimulate some late-night, last-minute discussion by posting this thread from another board which is frequented by some articulate and well-intentioned Canadians...
I can only hope that the Vive staff are manning their computers and will publish this post in time for feedback.
Happy voting Canada - I feel confident that if everyone VOTED, we'd get the government we deserve.
Check out this thread please - lots of links are to be found there (ignore the given troll population please) http://www.gnn.tv/threads/12093/Canada_votes_tomorrow_Jan_23
