Conversations across the land are turning to the next election, a full five months away.
Canadians may not all be aware of the fixed October 19 election date, but they know an election is coming soon.
Many voters whose main concern, this time, is booting out the science-hating, democracy-disrespecting, and über-controlling Harper regime, are thinking seriously about how to most effectively achieve that goal.
For more than two years supporters of the Liberal party have made the argument that "progressives" who are appalled by the Harper government must vote for their party next time.
Vote for anyone else, Liberals and their allies in the so-called "strategic voting" movement would say, and you will "split the vote" and re-elect Harper.
