|Strategic voting in Kootenay-Columbia|
Such is also the case in Kootenay-Columbia, which includes Cranbrook, Revelstoke, Kimberley, Fernie, Golden, Sparwood, and Nelson. In the last election, vote splitting wasn't a factor: the Conservative won with 50% of the vote, compared to 39% NDP, 4% Liberal, and 6% Green.
A redrawing of the riding, however, has brought 4000 net NDP votes into the riding and this could make a difference.
An Environics Poll from September 19, 2015 placed the NDP and Conservatives in a dead head: Con (37%), NDP (37%), Lib. (15%), and Green (11%).
This suggests that to avoid vote splitting, strategic voters should support the NDP.
Update. Votetogether.ca has now endorsed the NDP for strategic voters in Kootenay-Columbia.
