Its membership includes individuals from the four centre-left political parties: Liberal, New Democratic, Alberta Party, & EverGreen. Their common goal is to elect a strong progressive opposition in 2012 through strategic voting, and to that end, they recommend "winnable" progressive candidates in 42 ridings.
