I mailed in my ballot for the original March 12 deadline and my #1 vote was for Saganash.
I had the pleasure of meeting him in January when he came to Toronto, I spoke with him after his talk and I just liked him as a person, and for what he could have (and still can) bring to the NDP and to Canada. A remarkable man. Head and shoulders above the rest.
I won't be at the convention, mostly because of the exorbitant fee. Yikes. But my heart simply isn't in it anymore. I voted, reluctantly and rather dismally, and now I just want it to be done so we can get to the task at hand which is being the opposition, planning for 2015 and showing Canada what a fucking rat Harper is.
SO...who else is running?
I was pleased to see Saganash on stage, and displeased with Mulcair failing to mention him and Chisholm.
That is unfortunate, Unionist. Some people are more naturally inclined to be considerate and think of what others might dismiss as small gestures.
Did they announce Saganash's first-preference votes? or just act like the weren't even cast?
The latter, it looks like.
Bummer, I was curious :/
perhaps he got more votes than one or more of the active candidates, and they didn't want to embarass whoever he might have outpolled.
