NDP Candidate Defects to Liberals

Ryan Dolby, the former NDP candidate for Elgin-Middlesex-London has defected to the Liberals. Even he realizes that the best and only way to stop Stephen Harper is to vote Liberal. The NDP cannot stop the Conservatives and neither can the Bloc or Green parties. Most Canadians will never vote for the smaller parties. The vote-splitting on the Left is rampant throughout the whole country. In many ridings, Conservatives would be defeated. Since we do not have IRV, Harper has the biggest chance of his career to win a majority. The only way to stop him is to vote Liberal, just like the Dippers know.
Jack Layton was all confidence and bravado after learning that one of his candidates in London, Ont., had made to strategic decision to drop out of the race and support the Liberals. 
Ryan Dolby, who was running for the NDP in Elgin-Middlesex-London but now supports Liberal Graham Warwick, announced his decision Wednesday morning saying a vote for Michael Ignatieff’s party was the best way to prevent the Conservatives and Stephen Harper from winning majority.

  2. So much crap. In some ridings, it makes sense to vote Liberal strategically. In some, it makes sense to vote NDP strategically. If you push the mindless "only a Liberal vote will unseat Harper" meme, real progressive voters will shun your party again. I'm all for a coordinated anyone-but-Harper strategy, but Liberals have to admit that there are a number of ridings where their candidates have no hope, and the ABC votes need to go to the NDP to unseat Conservative incumbents. Just as there are a number of ridings where the opposite is true. There are sadly even some ridings where the Bloc is the only non-Conservative hope.

    We really need a modern electoral system. This FPTP nonsense is poisoning our souls.
