    With the federal election just five days away, candidates are courting undecided voters.

    Liberal candidate David Merner believes the undecided vote may very well determine the outcome, not just in the Sooke-Esquimalt-Saanich riding, but the election at large as well.

    For the first time in living memory, B.C. is going to decide who forms the government, and the undecided votes will actually decide who becomes the next prime minister of Canada, he said.

    Merner knows a good chunk of his audience too, decided or undecided, pointing towards the thousands of local folk who commute to and from Fort McMurray.

    Depending on who gets elected, their future and the wellbeing of their families could be in a dangerous balance.

    The undecided voter could work in favour of the Liberal party here, as Merner already said during the last candidate meeting that his party wouldnt just shut down the oil sands without first providing an alternative for those who work there.

    He added that anyone who is undecided should simply give him a ring, as being intertwined in the community is what could make the difference.

    Merner isnt alone in believing that adding a face to the voice (or vice-versa) can change the tide here so do the other three.

    Green Party candidate Frances Litman said a big part of making a difference with undecided voters is about finding the time to talk to them in the first place.

    Im not just a five-minute appearance, Im there, because people want a person who really cares, she said.

    You dont join the Green Party if its about money or power, because we have neither. It has to be from the heart.

    In retrospect, Conservative candidate Shari Lukens said that the only way undecided voters will swing either-or is if they are fundamentally given what they need in the first place.

    NDP candidate MP Randall Garrison said the bigger focus for his party isnt so much on talking to those who havent made up their minds, but more so identifying NDP supporters and getting them out to vote.

    Youre talking about the truly undecided, but theres another group called anybody but Harper, thats the group that we focused on most, he said.

    Man dies after being ejected from truck

    A 55-year-old Otter Point man died when he was thrown from his pickup truck after it veered off West Coast Road on Friday night.

    Sooke RCMP and Shirley Fire Department responded to the single-vehicle accident at 8:15 p.m. near Sheringham Point Road. The man was the lone occupant in the vehicle.

    Early investigation suggests the man tried to correct his steering, and lost control, veered into the ditch and was thrown out of the vehicle.

    Exact cause of the accident is under investigation, though alcohol may be a factor, said RCMP.

    The name of the deceased man is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
