Reader wants NDP, Liberals and Greens to run one mutually acceptable federal election candidate

LETTER: Split vote will mean another Tory majority

Congratulations to the NDP, the Liberals and the Greens for their effort and hard work in getting the Conservative party elected in the last federal election.

With their continued support and the help of the first-past-the-post system, we will quite likely enjoy another four years of a Harper majority government.

How else could Stephen Harper have achieved such a success with only 38 per cent of the popular vote?

It would be a shame if the NDP, Liberals and Greens found a mutually acceptable candidate and thus brought Harper’s reign to an end, but I think we can rest assured that the three opposition parties will not take such a drastic step and thus ruin Harper’s dreams. Let’s just keep splitting the vote!
