Sad to say, the NDP has always waffled on this issue, and it’s one of many reasons I refuse to join the party or do any more volunteer work for campaigns…I will, also unfortunately, have to keep voting for them as there is no progressive alternative around…if the Greens ever cease kowtowing to the Tories, I might have to go there.May is the only ones with the guts to take a principled stand on the Israel-Palestine issue….

The fact that Mulcair has decided to take cheap shots at Hassainia’s  ‘attendance’  or comment that they tried to ‘accommodate’ her by allowing her to breastfeed in a private office is  so pathetic that I can’t think of anything that isn’t too vulgar to compare it with.

I can’t help but wish that she had  breastfed right from her seat in the house, that would have stirred things up! Suffice to say, I am disappointed (as usual) with the NDP, but sadly, not too surprised…

I’m guessing they are in panic mode because they have foolishly sat back and watched as Junior Trudeau went out and pressed the flesh, his gleaming smile and spit curls on the forehead charming the average disgruntled Tory voter (read: ex-Libs) and stealing all the thunder  garnered by the NDP in Quebec..

Mulcair is great in the House, no denying it; but  the average voter could care less…he is allowing the Cons and Libs to take the fight to him, instead of being out there  meeting the public, at least once in a while…and  this latest defection will help not at all…

    In the past, NDPers like Libby Davies have made comments about the mess of the Middle East, especially as it relates to Israel’s ‘top down’ approach and genocide of Palestinians, only to have their views immediately slammed from every angle because they’re ‘too contentious’. Unfortunately, Israel holds sway over every party in Canada, regardless of which way they lean or how they voice their concern.

      True that…and I am Libby’s biggest fan..did lots of work in the past as a volunteer and enthusiastic supporter of candidates and MPs. MlAS etc. when I lived in Vancouver, but no more…seems every Party has leaned a little too far right for my taste, I don’t know what can change that…..sadly, my own MP is retiring, so one of the few that I could support is leaving us…
      Eons ago, Libby was talking about a breakaway party, a progressive party, but now? She sat for so long at the side of Layton, who also tended to be a bit too middle of the road, so I have no idea where Libby stands today, but I just know she is one of the few who has the backbone to say her piece…this is what comes of electing an ex-Liberal as our leader…no good ever comes of it…
