Well, I wasn't here at the time but I wouldn't have, and I didn't vote for my MP in my old riding either. I think I can count on two fingers of one hand the times I've had a chance to vote for someone who actually won federally (since 1968). You are very lucky, Croggy, to have Dewar. (The two I was able to vote for who won: Dan Heap, and I think Olivia before we moved.)
This is a Catch-22 riding, though. We're one of the ridings with a very narrow margin of success for the Tories last time, and the serious challenge is from the NDP. So. There's hope.
