Ed Broadbent's Endorsement Of Brian Topp Is Huge


"NDP president Brian Topp is running to replace Jack Layton as leader, having already secured the support of Quebec MP Françoise Boivin and former leader Ed Broadbent.

The trio appeared together at a news conference in Ottawa ahead of an NDP caucus meeting in Quebec City this week.

Ms. Boivin and Mr. Broadbent's endorsements came as a surprise, but are a clear signal of Mr. Topp's strengths and wide-ranging support in NDP circles." [...] Mr. Topp was a close ally of Mr. Layton until the former leader passed away last month. He grew up in Quebec, but worked in Saskatchewan through much of the 1990s and is now based in Toronto.

“I know that New Democrats can deliver a successful NDP government in both official languages and in every part of the country,” Mr. Topp said. “A fiscally responsible and economically literate government that offers Canadians hope for a better future.”
