NDP has a new leader.

Thomas Mulcair is the new leader of the NDP. He is a well educated individual, having taught law at the university level. He also has notable experience working in the bureaucracy. As a public servant he has worked at Legislative Affairs branch of the Justice Ministry, and later in the Legal Affairs Directorate of the Conseil de la langue fran├žaise. As a politician, Mulcair has been elected provincially, and has served as Minister of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks under the Charest government. Further more, He was Jack Layton's deputy Leader. However, Mulcair is also noted for making what some would call blunder. He made a controversial comment about the pictures of Osama Bin Laden's corpse that has been Criticized. Please share opinions of Thomas Mulcair and his future as the new leader of the NDP.

  1. As an NDP member, I'm just gonna say I did not vote for him, in fact, he was my last choice =P. Some of the things he's said and done, like the Bin Laden thing, are just kind of...awkward. He also seems to be too much of a pro-Quebec candidate to really take the party to the national stage and give it a fighting chance at actually forming government. Nonetheless, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt until he proves otherwise.
