Subject: The NDP and the Liberals also drawing moderate Conservative voters

The Editor
The Tyee, Vancouver, B.C.
With Duffy-Wright scandal brewing, the NDP and the Liberals also drawing moderate Conservative voters

Re "Former PCs Aim to Oust Conservatives Via Vote Siphoing," by Jeremy J. Nuttall (Aug. 13).

Aristotle once remarked that all forms of government -- democracy, oligarchy, monarchy, tyranny -- are inherently unstable, that all political regimes are inherently transitional, that the stability of all regimes is "corrupted by the corrosive power of time." After a decade of Harper rule, his Conservative government is clearly showing the signs of "the corrosive power of time," as evident from the scandal involving his handpicked, now suspened, Senator Mike Duffy and his former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, and his handling of it.

When former Prime Minister Paul Martin faced an election in 2006, the economy was booming and the budget was in surplus. Yet, he went down in defeat because the voters didn't buy his contention that, as Finance Minister, he didn't know that former Prime Minister Jean Chretien was spending millions of dollars for the sponsorship program.  In 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper faces the public skepticism over his contention that he didn't know that his own chief of staff, Nigel Wright, wrote a cheque of $90,000 to repay alleged overspending by his handpicked, now suspended, Senator Mike Duffy.  The economy has also stalled and the budget is in deficit.

As such, most voters, including many moderate Conservative voters, have decided that the time for change has arrived. This explains why support for both the NDP and the Liberals remain strong. Both the parties seem to be siphoning off moderate Conservatrive voters from Harper's Conservatives. This has already happened in the Tory stronghold of Alberta where the NDP has won in a landslide in the recent election.

Jeremy Nuttall quotes Sinclair Stevens, former Progressive Conservative minister under Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, saying: "Our feeling is that if we have a credible candidate, they may take enough votes so that the Conservative won't make it. That may sound like we're supporting the Liberals, but our feeling is -- in this case -- the Liberals are better than Stephen Harper." Progressive Conservatives can also do this by strategically voting for the Liberals or the NDP in ridings where one of them has the best possibility to win.

With the public yearning for change after a decade of Harper's autocratic rule palpable across the country, the Conservatives are likely to be wiped out in the coming election. Time for change and renewal has come to Canada.
