Great website, spear-headed by Now magazine's Alice Klein, for help with strategic voting in the upcoming election here.

I'm in a riding with two extremely progressive candidates, so there's not much danger of a Conservative here (although it's a waste to run two leftists against each other), but there are other tight races which the above site can help with. It's kind of fun to type in past postal codes to see how things are going in old stomping grounds. For example, Kingston (K7K 3T5), where I lived for about seven years, is in danger of going Blue if the progressives split the vote, while my old hometown of Oshawa might be able to go NDP again, returning to its roots as a strong union town.
