Considering voting Green but scared that doing so might allow a Conservative candidate to win?
Fear not - University-Rosedale is not only one of the greenest communities in Canada, it's also one of the least likely to send a Conservative to Ottawa.
In the 2015 federal election, the Conservatives received only 17.5% of the vote.
In the 2018 provincial election, a hard-working candidate received only 21% of votes cast.
This means that there is no need to vote strategically in University – Rosedale. You can vote for the candidate and party that best reflects your values and views.
So if you've considered voting Green in the past but felt compelled to support the Liberals or NDP at the last moment - fear not, and vote your conscience.
More Green MPs in Ottawa will mean Justin Trudeau's Liberals will be forced to live up to his 2015 promise to revamp an electoral system that creates a culture of fear-based strategic voting. Voting Green tells Liberal MPs that your vote cannot be taken for granted or coerced through instilling fear of the alternative.
