Stock you are right about what you cited in the previous thread. The problem is there was no issue with the left wing bona fides of the people about whom you spoke. It is very likely we will see people recruited who just as easily could run for the Libs, or be too friendly to business, or labour. I don't want a bunch of insiders. Its bad enough already that here in Winnipeg North, we were basically told we'll take the National President of the NDP as our candidate, and it doesn't matter what we want. I don't like be told what to do, and I expect more of the same. Push hard enough and I'll stay home with a closed pocket book, and the NDP can go to hell.
