Before you vote NDP again in Skeena-Bulkley-Valley, consider the scary reality that your MP’s party has now chosen a Quebec separatist to lead it.
While I disagree with much of what the NDP believes in, I at least always thought it was a party that believed in Canada and federalism. Not anymore.
It is a slap in the face to not only NDP voters, but Canadians like myself who want to see a strong, federalist opposition. Politics aside, democracy needs a loyal opposition party that supports Canada and provides a solid, constructive criticism of government policies.
Nathan Cullen and his caucus should be embarassed and should ask for the new leader’s resignation immediately. Skeena elected you for your Canadian values, not to help break this country up.
