A new movement for a 'big tent' progressive party - A unified Liberal-NDP-Green party could have won a decisive majority in 2011

MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - The Libdemo Movement is launching a campaign to raise awareness of vote-splitting between the Liberal Party, the NDP, and the Green Party that enabled the Conservatives' election wins in 2006 and 2011—and will quite possibly lead to another Conservative win in 2015 if the parties do not address the issue soon.

A clear majority of 195 seats
The movement's researchers tabulated 2011 election results to demonstrate how a unified party could have easily defeated the Conservatives. In 53 ridings—including 32 in Ontario alone—the Liberal or NDP candidate came in second due to vote-splitting between the three parties, resulting in Conservative candidates being elected with a minority of the popular vote. Had these ridings been won by candidates from a unified party, the party would have formed a decisive and truly representative majority government of 195 seats.
