Is It Time For The NDP In PEI?

The times are a changing on Prince Edward Island. The two old line partys may have had their day ... let's hope!

"You don’t have to support the NDP to realize Islanders were best served when Dr Herb Dickieson served a single term in the provincial legislature. He held not only the Conservatives, but the Liberals accountable. He raised issues neither traditional party would. And he delivered results. Without his prodding one wonders whether key public investments like publicly funded daycare would be a reality today. The NDP drove that on to the public agenda.
Something is stirring on the Island. There is a level of dissatisfaction with the Liberals and Tories rarely, if ever, seen before. You hear it in casual conversations in rural and urban communities from one end of the Island to the other.

The test for the provincial NDP is whether it can grow to take advantage."
