A follow-up from the William Perry files on why he is no longer voting NDP in federal elections;
Dear Editor: NDP Strategic Voting
NDP has done a Fair job representing us. Good, I say, but this time I’m voting Liberal. Why? Glad you asked. Vote Splitting.
Liberal and NDP are closer than most want to believe. Every time we vote NDP we split the vote and put the Conservatives in power. It is a nice fantasy to have a NDP government, but in reality, it will never happen.
Liberals will bring down the deficit, cut the spending on needless initiatives like more prisons, and on wasteful projects like the F35s.
I have voted NDP for over almost 42 years. But now is time to vote beyond my party and think of what is really achievable and what the end result would be, and after the election, push for a uniting of the centre to left creating on ‘People’s Party’. I dare say we would likely never see a Conservative government again.
