2017 will be a pivotal year for New Democrats. Not only will we choose a new leader but we will be shaping the future of our country.
Now, more than ever, the New Democratic movement needs to be unafraid to speak truth to power, to listen to those that feel ignored, and to stand up for those that need it most. True progressive leadership is a team project.
If we are going to revitalize our party, and our country, we need to ensure that we are rooted in community. We need all of us to come together and work to offer a clear and passionate alternative to the same old revolving door of Conservative and Liberal governments. We need to reach out to all Canadians and let them know we've got their back.
Are you with me?
