Fifteen protesters are occupying NDP Foreign Affairs critic Paul Dewar's office in Ottawa demanding an end to what they call a "deafening silence" from the NDP on Israel's war on Gaza.
One activist, Joel Harden told rabble.ca that after word of the occupation exploded on social media Dewar entered the office to listen to the occupiers.
"We're meeting with Paul Dewar, he came to the office right now, and were talking to him, he's listening to us, to his credit," said Harden.

I see Peggy Nash has picked up two very nice new endorsements from BC MLAs Shane Simpson and Spencer Chandra Herbert.
Simpson: “I’ve been following all candidates closely and I am confident Peggy is the one who can most effectively ramp up our party’s momentum to 2015.”
Chandra Herbert: “Peggy is a fierce fighter when she needs to be, and a consensus builder when that’s required to get a job done.”
