The Delightful Dismemberment of the New Democratic Hopescape

Apologies to Stephen Colbert for the title. Anyway, it has come to my attention that the Ontario New Democrats are engaged in some sort of leadership race. Apparently, we won't see any candidates for another week or so. I won't bother with going through the list of potential candidates, at least until we get a couple of announcements. However, it has also come to my attention that Buzz Hargrove is retiring as CAW President and there might be more than a coronation to replace him. So, here's the question: with both the Ontario NDP and the CAW in full out leadership races, is there a chance their volunteers might be a little distracted if and when the next federal election begins? I can only hope so.

Andrew Lang Campaign Update: The newly founded Toronto-Danforth Federal Young Liberals are proud to be hosting a timeraiser for Andrew Lang tomorrow night. What's a timeraiser you ask? Well, its a fundraiser but instead of paying money you pledge volunteer hours. The details are on facebook here. Lots of great prizes to be auctioned off so come out, pledge some hours for the Lang campaign and have some fun.
