Here is the benchmark I’ll be using to evaluate who ought to be the next leader of the federal NDP:
Wanted, #NDP leader: integrity, inspiring, engaging personality, intelligent, ability to include French & First Nations, bilingual. #cdnpoli
And let’s add environment and climate change leader, optimistic, and including new Canadians to that list, at the risk of making it close to too long.
So we have Topp, Saganash, Cullen. Dewar probably tomorrow. Mulcair is waiting for…not sure. Libby Davies and Megan Leslie are not in. Waiting on Robert Chisholm and Peggy Nash.
What do you think?
Am I missing some qualitites?
What do you think of the current and likely candidates?
