Last Thurs­day’s visit to Sher­brooke by NDP leader Tom ‘Thomas’ Mul­cair was a huge suc­cess: an over­flow­ing room. But, out­side, the grum­bling was about the ‘niqab’ is­sue and the in­ter­nal polls show­ing that it had a huge im­pact.

So lo­cal can­di­dates were barely able to get pho­tographed with their leader as this pho­to­graph demon­strates, show­ing an ap­plaud­ing Comp­ton-Stanstead MP, now former, Jean Rousseau, be­ing squeezed out by the throng of pho­tog­ra­phers.
