Mul­cair looks at his fu­ture as NDP leader

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

OTTAWA — Tom Mul­cair says he is en­er­gized af­ter the hol­i­day break and re­mains mo­ti­vated to fight in­equal­ity in his role as NDP leader. Al­though Mul­cair stresses key is­sues such as the Trans-Pa­cific Part­ner­ship trade deal, he can­not shake off ques­tions about his fu­ture at the helm. The party is pre­par­ing for a cau­cus re­treat in Mon­te­bello, Que., this week be­fore the re­sump­tion of the House of Com­mons. New Democrats are re­view­ing the dev­as­tat­ing elec­tion re­sults, which re­duced them to third­party sta­tus in the Com­mons with 44 seats, down from 95 when the Oc­to­ber elec­tion was called. Mul­cair is to face a lead­er­ship re­view at the party’s up­com­ing con­ven­tion in April in Ed­mon­ton. He says he is tak­ing noth­ing for granted and will con­tinue to work for sup­port from party mem­bers.
