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…
