Crazy NDP policies come home to roost: Leadership contender doesn’t want to pay hefty entrance fee

Brian LilleyArchive

The NDP has long advocated that people shouldn’t have to pay for things they can’t afford but it seems that even socialist political parties require hefty registration fees if you want to be the leader. 

Cheri DiNovo is the MPP for Parkdale-High Park but wants to enter the race for leader of the federal NDP in anticipation of Thomas Mulcair’s exit.

Watch my video to find out why she has to resort to calling herself an “unofficial” candidate in the race for leader and why this likely means she doesn’t have the grassroots support to be a serious contender.

Not only is DiNovo completely off her rocker, but she is the modern-day (“et tu”) Brutus to Mulcair’s Caesar. She is not only crazy, but completely untrustworthy. Doesn’t really matter, however, as the Federal N.D.P.‘s are as “viable” as the Parti Quebecois. Just too bad we Albertans can’t eliminate the Provincial N.D.P.’s with an overnight referendum. They would be completely decimated.

Considering the federal non-democratic party has been outflanked and soon to be absorbed by the Baby Doc Liberals to form one large socialist party of regressives, I can understand why someone would not want to pay to participate in the non-democratic party leadership race. I think the financial criteria will be if the candidate is capable of breathing with life support they pay for won’t it?

Cheri DiNovo looks like a fake copy of Peggy Nash. I wonder if they grew up in the same neighbourhood in Toronto and smoked the same weed. They both have that smug look that says I know better than anyone else and you better get with my program. Screw off DiNovo, you smell like a rat bitten communist.

Socialism working well in Venezuela these days . . .
NDP supporters should make Venezuela a stop on their next vacation . . . and see what their insane policies do for the folks !

Actually, this is one thing that I can get behind.

Fees for leadership campaign entries are a barrier to outside-the-establishment candidates, while protecting the access for establishment candidates.

Just one more socialist pig at take.

Beware of smiling moon shaped faces that mask their Marxist intentions. This one looks like Shannon Phillips, that NDP loser from AB, and both have moon shaped faces, like Tom Mulcair.

Funniest thing I heard all day.

Richard, I’m sure that’s coming, along with the line that they’re picking on me, they hurt my feelings

Maybe she could get the taxpayers to foot her bill.
