Ashton eyes taking run at federal NDP leadership
Niki Ashton, who just turned 29, said she won't make a decision until after the provincial election is over. But she said she will in the coming weeks weigh the option of running.
"People are asking me to," she said Tuesday. "A number of people both here on the Hill and members on the ground."
In particular, Ashton said she was asked repeatedly during a visit to Saskatchewan last week for the Saskatchewan NDP Youth Convention. The province where the NDP got its start no longer has any NDP MPs in the House of Commons and Ashton spends time trying to represent some Saskatchewan issues as a Prairie MP, in addition to representing her own riding of Churchill.
She said her goal in many ways is to grow the party in western Canada where the NDP has the most room to win more seats.
