of months ago,while speaking to a "non-NDP" friend; he expressed the
opinion that he was very impressed with Justin Trudeau and he felt that
Trudeau would " sweep the country" come October.
Watching a CBC
news special this morning, I heard them state that recent polls have
shown a "surprising" turn-around in the popularity across the country of
In BC, in the Prairies (yes, even Alberta), in Ontario and in Quebec,
Thomas Mulcair has been chosen as the most popular and capable leader.
Only in the Maritimes, has Trudeau been chosen number one, with Mulcair
Even in Conservative Alberta, Mulcair came in a strong first over
Harper. In vote-rich Ontario and Quebec, Tom also was a strong first. It
seems that Tom's powerful opposition to Bill C51 was a telling point for
many, many voters.
Yes, I realize that we still have a long way to go before the fall
election. I know that many things could still happen.
However, the message to BC New Democrats is that we have a
responsibility to ensure that we put together strong local campaigns.
As I've said before, it is sometimes difficult to run strong local
campaigns, when the "national trend" is against us.
With the "national trend" in our favour, this should be an extra
incentive for us to put together a powerful campaign to elect our highly
capable candidate, Seonaigh MacPherson.
Please join me in this effort, until we see Thomas Mulcair as the next
Prime Minister of Canada.
