NDP leadership race is all strategy

NDP leadership race is all strategy One expert believes there’s a reason behind the Alberta NDP leadership candidates laying low. Eric Szeto has the story. EDMONTON – With all the coverage of the Alberta PC leadership race, you’d be hard-pressed to know there’s another leadership race going on in the province. Since late April, the Alberta NDP has been without a leader. And so far, only two people have thrown their hat into the race. “What’s surprising more than anything is there isn’t more than two leadership candidates,” says Bob Murray with the Frontier Centre for Public Policy. “We’re not… View Article
