Mulcair Says NDP Convention Represents a 2015 Campaign Launch

The Federal New Democrats are aiming to form a government in 2015, while they convene in Montreal to ponder on their first policy convention since the elections of Tom Mulcair as NDP leader. During an interview to a radio show on Saturday, Mulcair alleged that “we know we are turning a corner now and getting ready for the 2015 campaign,” and “it starts this weekend.”

Mulcair will be addressing a gathering of more than 2,000 delegates on Saturday. He alleged that the NDP is undoubtedly the best alternative to replace the Conservatives in 2015. He mentioned that “in 2015 Canadians who want change… are going to be able to vote for a party that will deliver. They’ll be able to vote for the change they want and actually get it with the NDP.” The leader of the Official Opposition held the Conservatives responsible “for delivering the type of right-wing government they had always dreamed of” at the exclusion of what all Canadians want. He highlighted that “we are a progressive country and we’ve been losing a lot of that under the Conservatives.”

Even though Mulcair dodged any direct inquiring into the possibility of Justin Trudeau’s clean sweep, he did take a shot at the once mighty Liberals saying that even when in power “the Liberals have simply not delivered.” Mulcair credited the party’s 2011 breakthrough to “a positive message for Quebec’s place in Canada” and “a very strong, credible message on sustainable development.”
