When you're trying to be effective, one of the key things it so ask yourself what is the worst possible outcome, and respond accordingly. If you're prepared for how badly things can go, nothing will catch you off guard. With that in mind, I turn to the current political situation:
Let's take it as a given that the Conservatives are going to win a large number of seats from the Liberals next election, and that there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. Our goal here is to prevent a Harper majority. With so many Liberal seats about to turn blue, how do we do it?
First thought for me is to make sure the NDP is strong enough to win large numbers of seats in British Colombia, Edmonton, and Saskatchewan.
What else should we do? How do we make this happen?
