The NDP delegates supported the ‘Leap Manifesto’ at their convention but rejected Tom Mulcair as the leader. He left the stage went behind the curtain and then shortly re-emerged with the news that he was not going anywhere.
The new plan was to have him stay for a year or more while the party sorted itself out and prepared for a leadership convention. In the meantime, Tom Mulcair stays in place, never mind that the convention delegates gave him the pink slip.
Of course, it was orchestrated from the convention floor with a pre-arranged plan B and it worked.
They handed Mulcair a pink slip but he is still in place.
The outrageous is becoming the norm. Democracy has been hijacked in what is left of the NDP.
In governments at every level and apparently within the ranks of the NDP, the senior bureaucrats and staffers control the play.
The Green Party delegates, much like the NDP conventioneers, also passed a motion against the wishes of their leader.....
