Cullen offers much as leader

Our MP, Nathan Cullen, is currently campaigning to become the leader of the NDP.

Dear sir,

Our MP, Nathan Cullen, is currently campaigning to become the leader of the NDP.

I think that Nathan has done a fantastic job of representing the interests of our region in Ottawa, and if he is successful in becoming the leader of the official opposition party it will mean great things for our region and for all of northern and rural Canada, whose unique needs are so often forgotten by urban-dwelling politicians and bureaucrats.

Nathan is officially opposed to the Enbdrige project and since he is from a community that will be directly impacted by the project he is in a unique position to take on Stephen Harper and the other conservatives trying to push it through.

Since we have so much to gain by having our own MP become the leader of the official opposition party, I am surprised that there has not been much local media attention focused on his campaign.

I have always been hesitant to officially align myself with any one political party, but as soon as I heard that Nathan was running for leader I became a member of the NDP.

This allows me to vote for him in the party’s leadership election in March.  The annual membership fee is only $10.

In order to vote in March you must become a member by February 18.

It takes less than 5 minutes to register online at www.ndp.ca.

The website also has details of how to vote for Nathan once you are a member.

I encourage everyone who is happy with Nathan’s performance as our MP to consider taking this step.

I am not affiliated with his campaign in any way, I just think we have a lot to gain from his success and want to make people aware of this opportunity.

Thank you for considering my opinion on this matter.

 

Lani Gibson.
