Strategic Voting

There's something freeing about knowing for sure that your vote won't make a difference. You can vote your conscience and ignore strategic voting.  (This only applies to 'done deal' ridings, where you know you can't matter.)
The Conservative candidate for Battle River—Crowfoot is showing on ThreeHundredEight.com as 100% likely to win the riding. Vote your conscience, you're off the hook.
So if your vote won't impact the outcome, what can you do?
If you support Harper, encourage Liberal and NDP supporters to vote their conscience, split their vote and leave the election to the Conservatives.
If you'd rather not have another Harper government, encourage the Liberals and NDP to cooperate.
Vote Liberal in: Brampton Centre(ON), Northumberland—Peterborough South(ON), Vaughan–Woodbridge(ON) Saint John—Rothesay(NB), Aurora—Oak Ridges—Richmond Hill(ON), Bay of Quinte(ON), Haldimand—Norfolk(ON), King—Vaughan(ON).
Vote NDP in: Cariboo—Prince George(BC), Coquitlam—Port Coquitlam(BC), Edmonton Griesbach(AB), Regina—Qu'Appelle(SK), Jonquiere(QC), Essex(ON), Mission—Matsqui—Fraser Canyon(BC), North Okanagan—Shuswap(BC).

On election night, watch these swing ridings to see how things are going. No matter who wins, demand voter reform so that your vote will matter more next election, and help make strategic voting a thing of the past.

Fairvote.ca is one option. There are lots of systems. They're almost all better than what we have now.

  1. The company behind full spectrum cbd says that this supplement does not cause hallucinations, extreme cravings, or any one of the negative and undesirable adverse effects of cannabis. It is because this CBD extract is derived from the portion of the plant that does not cause these problems. Theres no THC to get us high, but all the excellent healthful results to make us feel better overall.

  2. According to the company’s website, PureKana is a Los Angeles based organization with a goal of providing consumers with some of the best, and affordable, CBD products around. As the site says all of its CBD products are legal in every state, it’s clear that they’re low in THC; but are they high in CBD?
    If you purchase PureKana products, the site claims you’ll benefit from organically grown CBD that contains no pesticides, chemical fertilizers, herbicides, solvents and everything is non-GMO. PureKana combines ‘typical’ CBD products such as oils, pills, and capsules. It all sounds great in theory but let’s see what PureKana’s products are like in practice and what I had to say.
