Strategic Voting: Ontario

Here are some prime ridings to vote strategically in, in Ontario. This means you vote for the progressive party most likely to win in each riding. I obtained the data from Vote For the Environment and Democratic Space(pdf). In fact, most Tories are vulnerable if the progressive parties vote strategically. In the following ridings the respective Liberal, NDP or Green candidates have the best chance of defeating the Tory incumbent.

To avoid splitting the vote and letting a Conservative win vote Liberal in;
Ancaster--Dundas--Flamborough--Westdale; Barrie;Brampton West; Brant; Burlington; Essex;
Haldimand-Norfolk; Halton; Kitchener-Conestoga; Kenora; London West; Ottawa South; Ottawa Vanier; Mississauga-Erindale; Mississauga South; Mississauga-Streetsville; Parry Sound-Muskoka; Peterborough; Newmarket-Aurora; Niagara Falls;Northumberland-Quinte West; Oak Ridges-Markham; Oakville; Simcoe North; St. Catharines; Cambridge; Huron-Bruce; Sarnia-Lambton; Welland

Vote for the NDP in;
Hamilton East-Stoney Creek; Nickel Belt;Parkdale-High Park; Ottawa- Orleans; Ottawa West- Nepean; Oshawa; Sault Ste.Marie; Thunder bay- Rainy River; Whitby-Oshawa

And vote Green in;
Bruce--Grey--Owen Sound;

ABC(Anybody but the Conservatives).
