LETTERS: Slight edge

How will you feel if the NDP, Liberals and Greens split 65 per cent of the vote and Neufeld wins with 35 per cent?

With the Liberal party now enjoying a slight edge in the latest national polls it makes even more sense to vote strategically in our new riding of South Okanagan-West Kootenay.

Liberal party supporters can actually help Trudeau beat Harper by ensuring that Marshall Neufeld doesn’t win; every seat is critical and even though Denesiuk has done a great job campaigning for the Liberals,  there is very little chance they will win this riding. So Liberal supporters can help Trudeau by electing Richard Cannings.  After all, they are not trying to unseat the NDP, they are trying to unseat the Conservatives. Every seat denied to Harper is a win for the 60-70 per cent of us who do not want Harper to have another four years to dismantle our country.

There has not been a single poll in our riding that shows the Liberals with a chance to win. So think about this: denying Harper a win in the South Okanagan – West Kootenay does Justin a lot more good than splitting our progressive vote and having Neufeld go to Ottawa.

How will you feel if the NDP, Liberals and Greens split 65 per cent of the vote and Neufeld wins with 35 per cent?

I know how I will feel — sick about another opportunity lost!
