NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh’s Problems Worsen Before Todays Caucus Meeting In BC

Posted  September 11, 2018  by  leftdog

Many pragmatic, experienced veterans of the New Democratic Party of Canada are preparing for the Party to be nearly obliterated in the upcoming 2019 Election under the leadership of Jagmeet Singh.

The reasons are many, but none more public than Singh’s handling of the Erin Weir and Christine Moore harassment allegations in the Federal Caucus.  Singh has also managed to ignite an outright battle with the governing New Democrats in Alberta over pipelines and a nasty battle with Saskatchewan Federal New Democrats over the excommunication of MP Erin Weir.

It is unfortunate that at their Caucus meeting starting today in BC,  the Members of the Federal NDP Caucus will rally around Singh, attack his critics and venture forward over the next year with grim determination while Canada witnesses the electoral sinking of the Federal NDP. 

Perhaps from the remains of the Federal NDP will arise a social democratic option in Canada for the 21st Century that is not burdened with the current idiotic ‘rebel without a clue’  leadership that is currently suffocating it.

So it’s not just me?! “‘Seven Days in Entebbe’ and the nostalgia for 1970s terrorism”

Dominic Green:It was only Seven Days in Entebbe, but it felt like an eternity. The rescue in July 1976 by Israeli commandos of 102 Jewish and Israeli hostages from Palestinian and German terrorists at Entebbe airport in Uganda was a scriptwriter’s dream: a three-act drama of crisis, complication and resolution, in which the good guys […]
