NDP looks to re­vive shirt craze

Edmonton Journal - - CITY -

On the sec­ond an­niver­sary of the party form­ing gov­ern­ment and end­ing decades of Pro­gres­sive Con­ser­va­tive rule, the NDP is try­ing to re­cap­ture some of that old magic. An email to sup­port­ers urges them to vote on their favourite NDP-themed T-shirt and then pre-or­der the even­tual win­ner. The slo­gans on the shirt read, “A woman’s place is in the leg­is­la­ture,” “Rachel Not­ley’s got my back,” and “Not­ley Crue.” The Not­ley Crue shirt caused a small sen­sa­tion dur­ing the cam­paign, light­ing up so­cial me­dia and help­ing boost the sup­port of leader Rachel Not­ley af­ter a strong de­bate per­for­mance. It rep­re­sents hap­pier times for a party that has bat­tled a flag­ging econ­omy since com­ing to power. The email, sent by deputy pre­mier Sarah Hoff­man, claims hun­dreds of sup­port­ers have al­ready voted.
