Over the weekend, Thomas Mulcair was given the boot by the NDP, at their Edmonton policy convention.
The NDP says they’re going to take two years to pick a new leader. So, with Harper and Mulcair gone, Justin Trudeau has gotten rid of his two top opponents.
(Who do you think is going to ask him tough questions in Parliament from now on? Elizabeth May?)
Thomas Mulcair was the sanest person in his party. But over the weekend, he was kicked out, and in came the full-on socialist environmentalist LEAP Manifesto. (Imagine Noam Chomsky and David Suzuki getting drunk and writing down their dream ideas…)
And then the NDP actually said that Alberta’s own extremist NDP premier, Rachel Notley, was too too pro-oil!
So what does this all mean? I’ll tell you what I think, but let’s face it:
When you think back fondly on Thomas Mulcair as a moderate, that tells you how far to the left Canada has slid...
NEXT: Veteran Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein on why the federal NDP's LEAP Manifesto is so horrible.
THEN: I'll give you an UPDATE on Faith Goldy's field work in Halifax, where she is uncovering potentially shocking media censorship on the refugee issue.
And FINALLY: Your letters to me, the nice and the not-so-nice!
