NRLC Federal NDP Leadership Forum

Update: Nathan Cullen and Paul Dewar were able to attend (Brian Topp was stuck in a meeting), and we even had a brief surprise appearance by Justice Minister Rob Nicholson.  Both candidates exemplified the high calibre of candidates that are running for the NDP leadership.  Both were dynamic, informed, and capable of doing the job.  I'd suggest that viewing the Leadership Debate video archive is a good idea.

The St. Catharines Standard wrote a good article covering the evening, read it here.


The Niagara Regional Labour Council is sponsoring a Federal NDP Leadership Forum at Club Capri, 36 Cleveland Street, Thorold, from 6:30 to 9 pm on Thursday, February 23rd.

Nathan Cullen, Paul Dewar, and Brian Topp are all confirmed.  Peggy Nash may also be able to attend.  A poster is available here.

Remember, make sure you're a member of the NDP by February 18th to be eligible to vote for the new leader (aka the next Prime Minister!).  Membership is just $25, or $5 if you're under/unemployed.  Join here!
