I don't think anyone mentioned Mable Elmore but she's running for the VanEast NDP 
http://globalnews.ca/news/1739091/vancouver-mla-mable-elmore-seeks-feder...

Does this put a stop to Kwan running? She was non-commital, Elmore is actually runing now... Regardless losing Kwan or Elmore is a hit for the BCNDP, one is a huge asset among the Chinese and poverty activist, the other an asset with the Filipino and LGBT communities

 

Debater

Alice Funke posted on Twitter last night that she found it interesting that Elmore got the jump on Kwan in being the first to officially announce.

Re: Hamilton Mountain and replacing Charlton --

Scott Duvall is the best-placed to run - current councillor on the mountain, very effective local politician, union background, well-liked across the spectrum.

Problem for him is that his cross-appeal is strong and he could be mayor potential if he sticks on council for a few more terms.  Being a former Hammerotnian I get the sense that he likes being effective more than being elected - the question is whether he'll feel he can make a difference at the federal level as opposed to his current role.  I see him as more of a provincial politician, personally and was very surprised to see his assistant Monique Taylor run for the NDP provincially, instead of him.

 

Sam Merulla is a former Liberal turned NDP about ten years ago.  Lost the Hamilton East nomination to MPP Paul Miller a few years back.  Merulla is the opposite of Duvall - flashy, livewire, a show man. 

Problem for him is that his ward doesn't really cover that much of the riding and that he's quite polarizing and to some can be very unlikeable.  Hamilton East and Hamilton Mountain are two very different worlds.  Also, he was former Liberal MPP Dominic Agostino's protégé so if I had to I'd bet on him rejoining the Liberal fold sometime in the future, particularly given Wynne's perceived leftward tilt and Trudeau's perceived left-leanings.  Imean, if a grassroots NDP politician like Glenn Thiebault can jump shimp, it is surprising that a Liberal-at-heart like Merulla hasn't also left the orange fold by now.

 

This is a very big opening for the Liberals and I'm surprised they haven't asked very popular former MPP Sophia Aggelonitis run federally.

 

If Duvall is the candidate, he'll likely win and I doubt that Terry Whitehead (local councillor from the area too) would run.

If Merulla is the candidate, Whitehead will probably run for the Liberals and would be very competitive.  I'd say a squeaker Liberal win.

Adamczyck is a loyal party soldier but likely wouldn't hold the riding given the current climate, in my view.

I've only lived in Hamilton for less than a year, but I'm not a big fan of Merulla, for the reasons you mentioned. Duvall seems like a solid candidate, but I'm not sure if he'd be willing to risk a safe council seat for a competitive federal race. I wonder if Brian McHattie is being scouted? While he has been approached by the NDP to run in the new Hamilton West-Dundas-Ancaster riding, which includes a chunk of his old ward as councillor, his increased city-wide profile following the mayoral race would make him viable in a more NDP friendly riding of Hamilton Mountain.

To members of the Central Okanagan-Similkameen Nicola NDP Riding Association:

A nomination meeting to select our NDP candidate will be held:
Saturday January 17, 2015 at 11:00 am at the 
Summerland Library, lower level - 9525 Wharton Street, Summerland

Our candidate, Angelique Wood will be nominated by acclamation.

Angelique Wood, the Area G director with the Regional District of Okanagan-Similkameen (RDOS). (defeated in the 2014 municipal election)

Angelique Wood was born in Montreal, PQ but grew up in the small farming town of Chilliwack, BC. After graduating high school, she moved to Vancouver, first attending UBC on a President's Entrance Scholarship, and later going to Emily Carr Institute where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1995. She went on to work in sales, marketing and display for two of Canada's most prestigious public and private art galleries and museums for more than 12 years. This included work at theMuseum of Anthropology, UBC, as an exhibition design assistant and curatorial assistant. She also worked in sales and marketing at the world renowned Inuit Gallery of Vancouver from 1998-2004. In 2005 she began to search for a home away from the fast-paced life of Vancouver. The Okanagan-Similkameen area captured her heart and she decided to purchase a house in the small town of Hedley, moving there early in 2006. Sheimmediately became active in the community and has since been sharing her diverse skills and knowledge with various groups and organizations in the Similkameen Valley. She has been a volunteer firefighter with the Hedley Fire Departmentsince 2008 where she is one of the fire truck drivers. Angelique's skills have led her to become active in all areas of community development and planning, from working on organizational development with community groups; to assisting in cultural resource management with First Nations; and the every-day volunteer activities that keep a small town running. In 2005/2006 she developed and coordinated a province-wide educational initiative to end violence against women for BC/Yukon Society of Transition Houses. Shehas been highly recognized for this work.

Now that would be a huge get for the NDP. Also keep in mind the redistributed West-Dundas-Ancaster is much more NDP-friendly than the old Ancaster—Dundas—Flamborough—Westdale. The redistributed 2011 results give the NDP a ten point bump, putting them ahead of the Liberals and into second place. With McHattie, they could win that riding.

You do know they consider anything on this side of the atlantic as American, and that has little to do with getting good policy in place for funding the Arts.

You give them too much credit, Brachina. They're not here to convince anyone of anything. Their only goal from the beginning has been to poison and demoralize this board. They're here to prevent discussion, not engage in it.

I think we need to look at ourselves also. Since Trudeau has become leader the LPC has been ahead in every measurement relevant to politics, money, votes, poll results, media coverage etc. And most of the Liberal partisans simply throw out these self evident numbers and we respond like its red meat. I am willing to concede they are ahead. I guess the real answer is so what. The election is next year and we will see what happens then. For me there has been no demoralization but a reminder of some things in the Liberal party I find quite ugly. Which is interesting because I have been very unhappy with where the NDP was heading the last few decades and somewhat indifferent to the NDP/Liberal contest and I only focused on getting Harper out. But when I read these Liberal posts replete with factual errors and assumptions that the Liberals will win and we will have harmony in the universe once more I start to feel that getting Harper out isn't enough for me.
The other thing I object to is this revisionisn about Layton. In his first campaign he mentioned Liberal arrogance and in his last campaign he did the same. This idea that he was non-partisan is simply hogwash.

thorin_bane

If anyone lurking is reading they will see the bad in both parties. I feel we present a more compelling case based on principles. Something lacking in the liberals entirely. Sure the NDP might be bad, but we won't ever know till they are elected. As it stands we know what the liberal record is(facts not the revision crap) and it is a sad record indeed.

Francois Beaulne, a former PQ MNA, is running for the nomination in Pierre-Boucher-Les Patriotes-Verchères. I wonder how long until the Libs or Cons attack the Ndp for allowing him to run?

He ran for the NDP in Laurier-Sainte-Marie in 1988.

Brachina

 Its called open nominations, I know the NDP record on this isn't perfect, but this is proof that its better then the Liberals. 

 I honestly don't know how the people think acting divisive and ostrasing people is supposed to be unifying, saying we want Quebec to stay in Canada, while telling people who decide to change thier minds and go federalist that your not welcome. Its hypocracy.

Adam T

Banker Francois Beaulne was a star candidate for the NDP in Quebec in 1988 and was a cabinet mininster in the PQ government, though not as senior a cabinet minister as another 1988 star candidate turned PQ MNA Remy Trudel.

He's a pretty impressive candidate, though he must be pretty old by now (not that ageism should enter into this).  

Good to see him embrace federalism again.

So far only one candidate looks to be presenting for the Yukon Nomination

Victor Kisoun - defines himself as a “young cultural performer and community organizer,” Kisoun served as vice-chair of the Kaska Dena Council, He has helped create and direct youth land-based cultural camps, according to the release. Kisoun has also managed a tourism company, taught at the Yukon College, and appeared in and produced documentary films.

Hilarious! You think NDP voters/candidates in Québec are "federalists"? Like, all those hundreds of thousands of Orange Wavers? Cute!

Either you don't read French, or you didn't take the time to read the story that scott16 linked to above. My translation:

Quote:
Xavier Barsalou Duval, Bloc candidate, sent a letter to the editor expressing his surprise at learning that M. Beaulne was running as a candidate for the NDP. He maintains that "the objectives of the NDP are diametrically opposed to those of the PQ".

M. Beaulne claims he has always been a social-democrat. "Nowhere is it written that if you're sovereignist, you have to vote Bloc federally. That was more the case 20 years ago, in the context of a referendum", he added.

He's a sovereignist. Get it? Just like a hefty contingent of the NDP caucus in Ottawa.

Brachina

 A hefty contigent that voted for the Unity bill and run under a federalist platform, under a federalist leader, with an understanding that they can not premote seperatism as an NDP MP. They may have sovergientist leanings, and be nationalists, but they not sovergiegntists, they made thier choice.

It's arrogant privileged and uninformed opinions like that which keep independence alive as an aspiration in Québec.

As for "they cannot promote separatism as an NDP MP" - fuck, they can't even promote Palestinian rights or complete decriminalization of sex work or legalization of marijuana... people make lots of compromises in difficult conditions, because they are caring individuals, and want to accomplish something decent for people, and they don't act like brainless buffoons saying "my party right or wrong!". There are a whole lot of good folks like that in the NDP caucus right now. But treat them like shit ("you made your choice, you're a federalist now!"), and they will definitely deliver some well-deserved bites in the ass.

ETA: By the way, did you get it? Beaulne says he's a sovereignist. He said it publicly. Better let Mulcair know, before the world collapses.

I have no insight into M Beaulne's political views, but in my reading of that article he says no such thing. He speaks in generic terms of how sovereignists vote or don't vote. But I do not see a personal statement or declaration there.  FWIW, in my reading, his remarks were addressed at sovereignist (BQ) voters rather than his own political views.

Well, I translated and quoted what he said, so people can interpret it as they wish. I actually don't care a whit about him - my more important points were made above, about arrogance and privilege and ignorance of how Quebecers view the world. As for Beaulne, in a larger sense, you're probably very correct. His sovereignist views will be silenced, or ambiguous, just as all embarrassing views are subject to party dictatorship (like the other examples I gave - and you can picture Libby Davies or anyone else as an example). But let's just hope the party inner-circle geniuses don't require anyone to publicly renounce Québec independence. That will return the NDP to the wilderness it inhabited in Québec since the Regina Manifesto. And that would be a shame.

Yes, I'm sure saying that it was nice to see Mr Beaulne reembrace federalism will cause a 10% increase for seperatism in Quebec.

In the article, Francois Beaulne's only mention of 'sovereignty' is in the context of saying that one does not have to be a supporter of the B.Q to be a sovereigntist.  What Mr Beaulne means by 'sovereignty' in this context is rather unclear.

It is clear, however, from reading the article, that his main concern is the environment and he is running for the NDP because he supports Mulcair who, he says, was a strong provincial envrionment minister.

Mr Beaulne, btw is 68.

 Voting for the NDP doesn't make you a federalist, your right Unionist, but running under the NDPs banner does.

Adam T

Unionist,

The NDP is the most clearly centralist party in Canada.  They favor strong Federal government action on a mulititude of fronts, even in cases where other parties oppose them (for instance their latest moves on child care)  As I'm sure you know, this has caused the NDP heartache in Quebec in the past.

I have no idea why it would be 'chauvinist' to call somebody in Quebec a federalist. I suspect this is just in your mind and very few others.  Most Quebecers are, with good reason, proud to be Canadian.

Also, I had mentioned earlier that Beaulne must be pretty old now because he ran for the NDP in 1988 after already establishing his name in the banking world.  That's the only reason I brought up his age.  He's actually younger that I figured he would have been.

In the Sudbury By-election thread, one of the candidates for the provincial NDP nomination has dropped out to back another candidate, and the article said he would be trying for the federal NDP nomination in either a Sudbury by-election or a general election.

I believe Loewenburg is relatively well known amongst the Northern NDP; he was the former NDP candidate in 2011 and came within I believe about 500 votes of winning then, artistic director of Northern Lights Festival Boreal, Operations Manager at the Laughing Buddha (restaurant I believe) 
he's got a pretty detailed bio on FB here https://www.facebook.com/PaulLoewenbergSudburyNdp/info?tab=page_info

"Charlton, backing labour leader Bryan Adamczyk for the nomination" in a rather lame critique of Duvall, questioning why hes running so soon after being re-elected to council. Its clear she's just backing the other guy and wants to stir things up. Duvall is much more high profile as perviously discussed here, there are many municipal elected candidates who are running for all the parties for 2015.

My guess is if he runs that he would run in Don Valley East or Toronto-St. Pauls.

Don Valley East would make sense because it is directly North of his home riding of Beaches- East york.

Toronto-St.Pauls could make sense because he went to high school in that riding. (this assumes that he lived close to his high school)

This is just my 2 cents.

Even a high profile candidate like Jim Cuddy would have problems winning in St. Paul's, and especially Don Valley East.

The only non-incumbent seats in Toronto that could be potential pickups are newly configured Toronto-Centre, University-Rosedale and maybe Scarborough Centre.

York West would seem to me to be an NDP target in 2015.

They finished second in 2011 federally and provincially, and then in the 2014 provincial election, Tom Rakocevic was less than 2000 votes behind the Liberal whereas other Toronto ridings saw NDP support drop.

Perhaps Rakocevic would be thinking of running federally!

 

Debater

The Liberal vote will be up in the GTA under Trudeau in 2015, and Judy Sgro won York West (now Humber River-Black Creek) by 20 points in 2011 even with Ignatieff weighing her down.  Therefore, I think that riding should be pretty secure for the Liberals in 2015.
