And here's something else on the newly elected NDP MPs from Quebec; those lucky ones that cared to show up at a nomination meeting when their friends were busy having fun:
Alexandre Boulerice, the NDP's new MP for Montreal's Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie riding, proudly confessed to QMI Agency he continues to campaign for Quebec Solidaire, the provincial leftist party that promotes independence.Could it happen that some of them eventually choose to cross the floor to the Bloc, so that the latter could regain its official party status? Or maybe we should then look forward for the NDP to invite the remaining Bloc MPs to join their caucus? If they no longer consider the independence question to be of any importance - then why not?
Cree leader Romeo Saganash, the NDP MP for the northern Quebec riding of Abitibi-Baie-James-Nunavik-Eeyou, has also openly supported the sovereigntist cause, as has former union activist Claude Patry, the new NDP representative for the Jonquière-Alma riding.
"We have people from all the provincial parties on our team," he said, and added the NDP didn't choose candidates based on their position on the independence question.
When you’re already as far left as a society can become, switching from the Bloc to the NDP is no great feat. You still get to promote blood-sports like abortion and euthanasia. You still get to pretend that marriage was an invention of religionists and that enabling and entitlement are the Canadian values that draw peaceful multiculturalists from around the world to our cod-forsaken shores.And going from Quebec Solidaire to the NDP is even easier.
