Jagmeet Singh & Jody Wilson-Raybould Have Had A Talk

I asked Jagmeet Singh if he’s spoken to Jody Wilson-Raybould since resignation, says he did & told her he was impressed by her bravery. When I asked his response to rumours she may be willing to cross the floor, he again says he thinks she’s brave,but wouldn’t say he’d welcome the change.

Of course if she does make a switch, she would have to sit as an independent and wait until the General Election to run under the NDP banner. As it is official NDP policy that they do not accept floor crossers, as they must seek a mandate from the people. Which is a by-election.

Seeing as how the general election is 8 months away, that hardly seems like a big deal.

But does she really want to sit as an independent for 8 months?

I think it is less likely that she would want to join the NDP than the problem of being an independent for that time.

My guess is that she is more likely to leave federal politics.

I would think that she might have a longer chat with Horgan than with Singh if the NDP were to be a thing.

I could also imagine her taking a shot at the Liberal leadership post Trudeau -- even if that is not for a decade.
