I have asked the question before – is it appropriate for the NDP to be given speaking positions at events dedicated to or organized for Canadian journalists?
I can’t imagine how it can even be remotely considered Ok for NDP leader Thomas Mulcair to be featured at their CEP union convention. This is the same union that voted 90% in favour of merging with the CAW (see here).
If you can stomach it, check out the highly political introduction by the union representative and a campaign style walk-in by Mulcair in the above video.
How many journos were in the audience standing and clapping?
Also: See earlier post where the Canadian Journalists Association had Mulcair as there keynote speaker this spring here
