Dear Nunavut Catch 22 Campaign supporters,
For the past year, the Catch 22 Campaign has been identifying vulnerable Conservative ridings, networking, building our base and laying the groundwork for the election. We have spent the first couple of weeks of the election getting input from local supporters in target ridings.
We had successful endorsement meetings in Ottawa and Vancouver last week. We also pioneered our first online endorsement discussion in Saanich-Gulf Islands and rolled that out to an additional 25 Conservative ridings earlier this week.
However, in Nunavut, the Catch 22 Campaign team is unable to make a recommendation at this time. It's just too close to call. We need more information and your input in order to make an informed decision.
- In the 2008 election, the Liberal and NDP candidates were ran neck and neck in a 34/29/27 split;
- The website Three hundred eight, which makes projections, has the Liberal with a slight lead over the NDP. With margins of error, we just don't feel ready to make a recommendation without local input. If we are unable to come to a firm conclusion, we will not include Nunavut in our voters guide.
Discussion on the Nunavut candidate recommendation will end on April 10 at noon local time.
