Plan B, continued

The Surly Beaver makes an excellent suggestion toward Jay Currie's Plan-B project to rid Canada of Section 13.1.

I think this is a good idea. But why stop at going after Tory marginals. Perhaps we should also look at some Liberal marginals as well. Harper is desperate for a majority, and Iggy is desperate to knock off Harper – neither can achieve their respective goals if there are sufficient seats at risk. And if we telegraph our intentions to stand in both Liberal and Conservative marginals one of them may call Uncle and advocate the repeal the offending section in which case we do not stand candidates in that party’s marginal constituencies. ...

On further thought – if we also target Liberals it needs to be in seats where they are competing with the Bloc or the NDP - no point in handing seats to the Tories. The same doesn’t necessarily hold true for Tory seats though – as the Liberals are so far back, if they benefit by winning a further 30 seats who cares.

Also, when considering what constitutes a “marginal” seat we should include seats not currently held by the Tories but which they have a good chance at winning – ie, Edmonton Strathcona, Ujjal Dosanjh’s riding etc.
