LETTER: Vote with your heart, sleep better

Reader Sandra Hartline takes issue with another reader on strategic voting.

Re: “Green’s view on strategic voting disappoints

I really have to take exception to the letter from Tia Leschke criticizing Bill Green, the Green Party candidate for Kootenay Columbia in the recent federal election. This is a free country, and each person has a right to vote according to their personal values and honest beliefs. In this case, the Greens had by far the best platform and the best federal leader.

Is strategic voting truly democratic? I don’t believe that it is. Why compromise and vote for a party you don’t like? Vote with your heart, and you will always sleep better.
