Anti-Conservative Vote Swapping
A new vote-swapping project has been fired up on Facebook, in the hope that non-Conservative voters can coordinate their votes across ridings.
Aside from the enormous complexity of these sorts of projects, the paradox is that the people who are informed and committed enough to engage in vote-swapping are probably partisans who may balk at the prospect of voting insincerely and, once alone in the voting booth, destroy the honour system that this project depends on.
The problem with alot of these approaches is that it's assumed that New Democrats and Liberals always prefer one another to the Conservatives. That's just not true. And given that the Liberal Party is stronger than the NDP in most ridings, it's NDs that would pay the greatest price under such a project. But why should NDs sacrifice their own candidates when the Liberal Party has generally campaigned from the left but governed from the centre?
