I hope the NDP do not come in power, but if the Tories and NDP are neck and neck, Liberal voters may have to strategically vote for them.

To tell you the truth I like the NDP plans to better the economy and our health care / school systems. I live near the oil field and can see the positive changes they make, In fort McMurray we have a great young environment . A baby is born here every 6 hours but we have 3, yes only 3 people who are able to deliver them and severly overcrowded schools. The taxes on small cororations are worse then the oil sands so we have like no where to shop and stuff here costs a lot (example i am selling a box of chocolate (4 truffles) for $12!) I disagree with the green Party and ABSOLUTLY do not agree with harper. Liberals are second to best for me.
