In the recent Canadian elections, there was a lot of discussion about strategic voting, particularly voting for the Liberals so that the Conservatives wouldn’t win. In Toronto, particularly in our riding in Toronto, the NDP looked set to take over from some long time liberals. They didn’t, and a lot of people blamed strategic voting.

While some people may be fine with strategic voting, I think my problem with it is that it doesn’t promote change. It promotes paranoia. Although, the more I think about it is voting against someone better than voting for someone? I don’t know.
