Hello to the good folks of Babble,
I used to post here fairly often but it's been a long time since I have been by.
Since I am running for the Leadership of the BC NDP, I thought I'd drop in and see if there's any questions that people here want to ask me about my campaign and my goals in this Leadership bid.
My leadership campaign is based upon four pillars: Democracy, Sustainability, Social Justice and Smart on Crime.
I have a pretty comprehensive set of policies and ideas at my website here: http://www.VoteDana.ca/platform
I'll do my best to check in over the remainder of the campaign and answer any questions anyone might have for me.
In light of this week's events in which China once again pressured Nepal to foil attempts by refugee Tibetans to hold an election to choose a new Prime Minister for the government-in-exile (apparently democracy is seditious), I would like to ask a serious if naive question.
Why is there not on this board call for a BDS campaign against China for its treatment of Tibetans?
The government is on the verge of collapse. Layton on right now has unequivocally rejected this budget on the heels of the other 2 opposition leaders announcing their opposition.
Off to the races.
