Of course not, because of course he didn't lie. The NDP can do no wrong, and are as pure as the driven snow.
Justin Trudeau is an evil blight on this once great country. Shame on every single dumb-dumb that voted for this clown in 2021. LET'S GO BRANDON!!

Actually, if you live in Kelowna-Lake Country, the strategic vote is Liberal - going off of the strategic voting website. You can check by riding on their site. Google "strategic voting Canada" and follow the menu link to the ridings.

They should talk to George than because that contradicts what he's been saying.

Wrong.

The smart strategy is second place last election.

NDP.

Maybe George votes in Central Okanagan (formerly Okanagan-Coquihalla) - because their strategic vote is NDP. Kelowna-Lake Country is Liberal.
Anyways, since when is George the authority? Because he read Wikipedia?

The Liberals are way behind in Kelowna Lake Country.

NDP has a strong candidate in Norah Bowman.

strategicvoting.ca recommends the Liberals for Kelowna-Lake Country using this methodology:

"1. Publicly available riding-level opinion polls data. Latest polls take precedence as the long as the poll result is higher than the margin of error
2. 2011 election results, if supported by threehundredeight.com projections
3. When threehundredeight.com projections conflicts with 2011 election results, I review previous election results (2000, 2004, 2006 and 2008) for the riding voting trend and the reason behind the conflict. This is especially important with the surge in support for the Liberals to levels not seen since the 2006 election results

When building our methodology and party selection criteria I have 3 main objects:

1To better reflect each district’s voting preferences.

2To maximize the number of progressive MPs

3To keep each progressive party’s share of the vote (same overall number of ballots as much as possible.)."

So I am going off their website, but also a bit confused because NDP was the stronger finish in 2011. Perhaps polls were showing a better chance for liberals?

Either way, unfortunately this area is such an overwhelming Conservative stronghold that I have zero faith there will be any change.

Old story...very boring...bring on Duffy!
Typical NDP and union extremist response , sweep it under the rug and pretend it never happened. It's what the NDP does best cower away from confrontation. Not a strong leadership quality.

Strategic voting uses only the 2011 results. Not varying polls or it would constantly change.

Why would the NDP and Liberals fight over already held ridings?

It is the Conservative ridings they want.

Vote for whomever was in second in the Con. ridings in 2011.

Clearly the NDP in Kelowna Lake Country.

Ignore today's reality . . . that could well be the NDP campaign slogan.
