There's Nothing Smart About Strategic Voting in the Mayoral Election

John Tory Olivia Chow CP

At this point in campaigns--especially absurdly long ones--pundits love to obsess about voting for someone you don't agree with to defeat someone else who is disagreeable. Some, oddly, call this strategic, as if it's really smart to vote for things you don't want. I'm with Olivia because I agree with her. And I'm not voting for Mr. Tory because I don't. That's what an election is about. And what's strategic is voting to replace the Ford agenda with something better by electing Olivia Chow mayor.
