Hargrove, you will recall, implored his members and likeminded folks across Canada to vote for the Liberals in the last federal election. He wanted people to vote for the NDP only in ridings where the Conservatives didn’t have a chance to win but where the Conservatives were strong, to vote either Liberal or NDP, choosing the stronger candidate in order to thwart the Conservatives.
