I propose this thread to be specifically dedicated to listing upcoming BC appearances of federal NDP leadership candidates. This is probably best in the Canadian politics section because it's federal, even though it's about one region of the country.
This story got quite a bit of coverage on CTV today and was one of the topics on Don Martin's Power Play show tonight.
It will be interesting to see whether this trend continues.

Poll gives high marks to Harper, but Rae gaining
Voting-age Canadians rate Prime Minister Stephen Harper as the most competent and trustworthy federal political leader, but a new poll suggests Liberal Leader Bob Rae is making the most gains with the electorate.

This thread aims to satisfy those in our babble community who want to know more about the PeggyNash campaign or want to share articles or items of interest to other supporters. As much as possible her Meet-ups for supporters and Greet the candidate events will be posted here beginning with two events Nov. 1 in Victoria. Watch for info on a Greet Peggy event at The Railway Club in Vancouver Thursday evening.
Every thread seems to talk about the same thins ;do the candidates speak french, where are they from, and do they support Blair third way. I, for one, have, know very little about what if any policy and/or social vision differences exist between them. Would any one care to write about them?
This thread is for questions specific to Peggy Nash's leadership campaign and all that the success of which would entail. Over the next few weeks and months, we will invite each NDP leadership candidate to answer your questions in a moderated discussion.
Please confine your contributions to the leadership candidate threads to questions directed at the individual candidate named in the thread title. Discussions and comments can be posted in any of the several other federal NDP threads.
