If this is "bold", how about Brother Sid Ryan and the massive demonstration on the Saturday calling on the party to "VOTE IT DOWN"?

I'm afraid that by "reclaiming the social contract" she's going to reinvent Bob Rae if we put the party in power. We as working people cannot afford that, any more than we can afford this budget even as amended. The Party must listen to its own core constituency, not to McGuinty's.

This boosting of a fake progressive party (within an elite-serving electoral system no less) is something I would not expect from Linda. Her messages are conflicting, which makes them far less helpful than they need to be.

I am not in the mood to cheer Andrea's timidity. Cheering her or not cheering her is not where the important fight needs to happen anyway.

I'm not comfortable. I'm not happy (which isn't to say that I misbehave as a result). How can I be? I work full time, and deal with a lot of uncertainty (floating as a security guard), and go to payday lenders every month. So I'm not feeling particularly forgiving, or generous and cheery and ready to be friends with everyone. The new NDP should be ignored and the fight for a democratic electoral system that can't be hijacked by special interests should be engaged.
