So...Urbane.... You believe Weaver would prop up the Liberals.

I can see many Greens switching to the NDP as soon as they hear this.

The worst election choices, if we can call them that, EVER.

Greens might support Liberals.
Conservatives here encouraging people to vote Green Party, in every thread.
If one admits one is planning to vote NDP the Green Barbarian is taking a closer look at his Christmas card list.

I"m voting the BC Conservative Party. I swear to God this is the only way to go.

I am voting for the party that has the biggest loss. Then I can say see I told you so, because who ever wins is only going to screw things up worse then they are.

At the televised debate Weaver talked about the party holding the greatest number of seats having the first chance to form a government. It sounds as if he would respect the will of the people. Are you opposed to that?

Of course the NDP is. It would mean they couldn't grab power despite not having enough seats. You know, the lazy way to grab power. The only real way the NDP know how to grab power.

Weaver's view on the NDP's fear mongering..................
"The argument about the vote split is a form of voter suppression," said Weaver, a scientist who has taught at the University of Victoria. "It's actually a very clever tactic, because what it does is rile up the (party) base and it turns off everybody else. But if people vote for what they want, we know we can win."

Weaver said the Greens' refusal to accept political donations from corporations and unions appeals to voters who hear the NDP and Liberals "argue over who is the least bought off."
