An environmental strategic voting website

Vote for Environment is a new site being publicized today that looks to be a handy reference for those seeking to ensure Conservatives are not re-elected and who are concerned about the Harper government's abdication of environmental responsibility.

There's a very handy riding by riding analysis that gives the breakdowns from the last election and gives a quick, candid synopsis of options. For example, here's my riding (click to enlarge):

Strategic voting calls will be heard from here on in. All parties need to get used to it.

This is a useful reference site for anyone interested in strategic voting and the environment in particular. Spread the word.
