Jim Laxer is obviously the only progressive left in the NDP party. Jim Laxer for NDP leader!!! And here’s a hearty round of boos from me directed at Alexa McDonough. What a dimwit for saying the Greens should be excluded from the debates. The real reason they want the Greens excluded is this latest poll result, NDP 15%, Green 11% (H/T to Far & Wide). The Greens are closing the gap and the NDP is terrified. I used to admire Alexa a great deal. I am over it now.
Meanwhile, Jim Laxer, a former party leadership candidate in the early 1970s and a political scientist, said he supports the idea of not running a candidate against Ms. May. A pact could help unite the opposition against Mr. Harper, Mr. Laxer said.
