"Hi Pierre, This is you a few days ago, right? This is when Project Democracy actually first came out with the NDP endorsement and you reacted against it. Now today I think I saw where you announced that Project Democracy has endorsed the NDP, and…"
"I am like your Middle East people who don't need anyone to tell them how to think, so I am not waiting for Catch 22 to tell me how to vote. As Gary has already told me, they have no first-hand knowledge of the riding and they are just going by…"
"I'm sure that it will be. And I am equally sure that Cannon will win as a result of the vote-split. It would be great if Pontiac changed and got on this progressive movement away from the "old way." Yes, I agree with you about party…"
"In other words, split the vote and let Cannon win. Well, it was nice to have these discussions, but if everyone is voting "with their heart" what's the difference between strategic voting and plain old voting for whomever we want?…"
"If we want to unseat Cannon - if that is our goal, then we will vote Liberal.
If we want to assess the candidates and choose the most qualified one (in our opinion) or if we are looking for some rationale that will allow us to vote NDP…"

"That's the plan, Pierre. We want to try to unseat Cannon. And the Liberal is the only possibility. Pontiac is a weird riding and most of it is antithetical to Quebec, so there is no Orange wave in the riding. I went all over the place on Sunday…"
For those who wish to see a Cannon victory, please continue to push for people to vote for the NDP in this riding. That is the best strategy to ensure a Conservative majority government. When I joined this group at its formation point a year or so ago, I was hoping that people would support the second-place Liberal party and that our Catch 22 membership would escalate, the word would get out and all those who are against Harper would vote en masse rather than splitting the vote and facilitating…See More
"I don't agree. The NDP will not get 40% in Pontiac, no matter how much we all might wish this to be the case. I think you are either working for the Conservatives in order to split the vote or you are delusional. You have given no reason why…"
"The people who are creating those polls are not from the Pontiac riding. They are using Quebec-wide data and making a giant leap of some sort. If you review the stats from previous elections (08,06 and especially back before those elections when…"
