Pragmatic Progressive

For as long as I've been eligible to vote, I've been a supporter of the NDP. I did my homework on all the party positions, and the NDP just made sense. Why wouldn't someone want to live in a Canada where everybody was included, instead of just the very rich and well-connected? I was born and raised in Quebec, so aligning myself with the NDP was done from a perspective of personal morality rather than as an easy path to power. This is part of the reason why I was drawn to Tom Mulcair's leadership. Over the years, I've been particularly drawn to the work of Peter Julian on a variety of issues. I've heard from many people that he is a approachable, honest and genuinely cares about his riding and the people in it. He's fluently bilingual, which was and still is uncommon for BC MP's, and seems very "un-politician like". I got a chance to really speak with him at the 2016 Edmonton convention and he helped me out with an issue that was weighing heavily on me in my personal life. It was then that I was sure that, should Tom Mulcair not continue as our leader, I would encourage Peter to run and - should he do so - I would support his campaign. And here we are. :)
