A former Canadian soldier who spearheaded a 2015 effort to deny Stephen Harper's Conservative government re-election because of its treatment of veterans is once again urging voters to vote "ABC — anybody but Conservative."

This time around, Tom Beaver says he is personally endorsing the Liberal government for meeting its key campaign promises to veterans. But the website for his group is called Veterans Against Conservatives.

"Yes, I am a Liberal. But In the past, I have also voted NDP and even Conservative once!" writes Beaver in a statement circulating via social media. "And yes, I have many good friends that support the NDP and Conservatives.... I trusted my life to them in the past, and I would again. I hope they would do the same. The ABC campaign is not telling anyone who to vote for. We are asking you not to vote Conservative."
