I just got home from an NDP nomination. It was the second such ievent I'd been at in a few months where the candidates seemed impressive and there was some magic. Although I'm not really a political junkie, I have some interest in progressive agendas and intriguing candidates.
I just came from Tyrone Benskin's event in the southwest Montreal riding of Jeanne LeBer. He is an actor and, I believe , executive from ACTRA. He's fairly charismatic and spoke a lot about Can-content and cultural issues. He seems to be a natural. These issues could resonate well in urban Quebec.
