Agree with that. No matter what your political stripe, don't forget that the new party funding laws in Canada give $1.75 for each vote the party gets. If you beleive in the party's vision and values, you should vote for them even if they don't have a snowballs chance in hell of winning because your vote will help fund their cause for the next election.
Political parties are severly restricted with the ways they can raise money and elections are a major source of income for them.
