Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
... to drain off support in the suburbs that would otherwise end up in the Liberal or NDP camp?

It would seem if Liberal resources are stretched, that an Federal electoral cease-fire with the NDP, where the NDP does not field against sitting Liberal MP's and conversely, would increase the prospects of entering into a coalition government, and then of course being in government might allow some minor repairs and maintenance of party machinery.

(And I suppose a push for electoral reform in favor of second-preference voting? Are Canadian Federal ridings first past the post?)

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.
