Kitchener-Waterloo byelection

It has just been announced that Catherine Fife the chair of the Waterloo school board and President of the Ontario Association of Public School Board Trustees will seek the NDP nomination in K-W...the Tories have already nominated and the liberals are still searching high and low for someone willing to run for them. With Fife this could be winnable for the NDP IMHO.

Liberal Bias at the Huffington Post

Quote:
Another Huff Post article fawning all over Trudeau. I almost want to tell them to get a room. And on CBC yesterday, Althia Raj fawning all over the LPC. They better pick Trudeau or the anti-NDP media aren't going to know what to do with themselves. Its like the Huff Post has become the LPC friendly version of Sun Media.

Arthur Cramer's take on the American Huffpo's intrusion into Canada.

Given the American inability to see more than half of the political spectrum, I wouldn't expect anything else from this source. If it doesn't directly pair with Republican/Democrat, it doesn't make sense, or it's radical and fringe.

Tommy Douglas Stamp

For those who didn't know, Canada Post will soon be issuing a stamp with Tommy Douglas on it.

Buy some when they go on sale, and send them on your letters as a show of support for the NDP.
