Interesting idea…

So here’s an interesting article:

There’s a facebook site set up for people who are struggling with wanting to vote their ideals, yet worrying about splitting the liberal/left vote and thus allowing the conservatives to get a majority. It lets you trade your votes with people in other ridings. E.g. If I live in a riding where the conservatives and liberals are close, but I want to vote green, I trade my vote with someone in a liberal stronghold who would normally vote liberal, they’ll vote green on my behalf, and I’ll vote liberal for them. An interesting attempt to unite the left….
