Dear Catch 22 team,
I am so glad you have formed this group and are doing this work. It is exactly what I was hoping for and what I think is so badly needed. Thank you!
If possible, I think it might be helpful if your website included a "Table 3" that listed all the other non-target ridings with recommendations of which non-Conservative candidate has…

These are the infamous words of Joe McCarthy as he set about re-arranging people’s lives in the 1950s. The Senator’s Committee on un-American Activities threw the Red Scare into everyone. His list became synonymous with…Continue
There has been a vacuum of discussions in the public forum about Harper’s vision for Canada or the values and ideology by which he would govern with a majority. His strategy has been to avoid such discussions, instead, there has been a rein on and tightly scripted public comments, a focus on key electoral districts, and utilisation of buzz words, phrases, and themes which attempt to not upset the decided base and gain additional support, all of which together hopefully will create a…Continue

MRB of Montreal says that Canada’s record in cutting the federal budget has been “terrible” given the bonanza we are reaping from high commodity prices, chiefly oil. And, now, there are “some alarming structural imbalances building.” The investment consulting company adds that our non-resource sector, which includes the vital technology sector, is uncompetitive.
In other words,…Continue

The Catch 22 Campaign is stepping up its efforts in 15 electoral ridings where defeats for Conservative candidates will help prevent a Conservative majority government.
“While we will keep working hard in the 57 ridings we have identified, we are putting extra efforts into 15 crucial ridings where strong strategic campaigns could result in some serious losses for the Conservatives,” said Gary Shaul, Catch 22 coordinator.
Catch 22 recommends that Canadians residing…Continue

It's so important for the majority of Canadians to vote strategically this time to avoid a Conservative majority. We need to pass this message along to everyone we meet during this week, direct them to Catch 22 Website and explain about Target Ridings. It's really sad to see how many liberal-thinking citizens don't give much of a thought to this election, and don't stop to think about the serious implications for all Canadians if Harper gets a majority. His ideology and intentions will come…Continue

Looking beyond just the horse race, here is Stephen Harper's bigger-picture game-plan / agenda:
1) Take majority control of the Senate.
2) Take majority control of the appointments to the Supreme Court of Canada.
3) Take majority control of the funding of political parties, riding associations, and candidates.
All of the above will be the case if Harper obtains a majority in this…Continue

In the Vancouver Quadra 2008 By-Election the Liberal candidate won by only 151 votes!!
Voters in the Vancouver Quadra riding should take note and vote (strategically) to defeat the Conservative candidate (eg vote Liberal)
I don't take comfort from various polling/vote intention results for Vancouver Quadra riding for 2011 election that indicate the Liberals have a wider lead. For example,…

Someone passed this on to me and it's such a colourful read, I thought I'd post it...Feelings run high down this way - like the winds.
The ferry scandal.
Well strike the headsails, and round her up! Finally, someone who gets the picture. Kudos to Derek Wells and the Liberal party re the ill advised and tragic sinking of the Yarmouth ferry. Yup folks it’s got a kind of familiar ring to it, “Ferry Scandal”. Don’t recall? Well I’ll freshen your memory. The NDP fast…
