Cullen back­ing Singh for NDP lead­er­ship

Truro Daily News - - CANADA -

OT­TAWA — Vet­eran New Demo­crat MP Nathan Cullen is throw­ing his weight be­hind the lead­er­ship bid of up­start can­di­date Jag­meet Singh, a mem­ber of the On­tario leg­is­la­ture. Cullen, who him­self ran for the job against vic­tor Tom Mul­cair in 2012, says Singh’s com­mit­ment to is­sues in­clud­ing elec­toral re­form and cli­mate change helped to ce­ment his de­ci­sion. Cullen also says he is not con­cerned about the fact Singh lacks a seat in the House of Com­mons and may wait un­til 2019 to seek one. Vot­ing for a new fed­eral NDP leader got un­der­way on Mon­day, with the win­ner to be de­clared next month.
