Hi. I’m supporting Nathan Cullen as my #1 choice for NDP leader. I hope you will too. Here’s why:
2. Nathan’s strongest point is his style. He is full of energy and spirit. He is a great communicator, who puts things in a straightforward and authentic way. He has courage to put forward new ideas. His warmth and openness will be huge assets in building our party and in bringing new voters to the NDP and to social democracy. He is very popular among young people, and we need to get them more engaged. And most importantly he can inspire and represent people of all ages and with a wide range of perspectives, who want to work together for a better Canada.
3. I’m confident that not only is he the best choice to fight Harper in the West, Nathan will succeed in retaining our Quebec support. His French is good now and will only get better. Once he gets more exposure in Quebec, I know he will gain popularity among average Quebecers, with his vivacious and authentic style and his strong commitment to social values.
4. Finally, I’m not worried about his proposal to cooperate. Neither should you be. It’s about cooperating from strength for an important purpose. It’s not about diluting our party. And all initiatives here would be up to local ridings – he is talking about enabling riding associations, not forcing us to do what we would not want to do. It’s a good idea, and it is an example of his bold thinking that he would put it forward in this leadership race.
