something to love about canada: the ndp

Last night after our meeting, the Toronto Campaign was invited to a barbecue at the home of Olivia Chow (also, of course, the home of NDP Leader Jack Layton).

It was a very informal gathering, relaxed and fun, but privately, the Americans there were all completely amazed. Here we are, drinking beer and eating burgers at the home of a Member of Parliament! No one had ever seen anything like that in the US.

Hooray for the NDP. What a difference its existence makes for Canada. For proof of that, we need only look to our south, to see what happens in a two-party system, when the votes of labour and left are taken for granted.
