A letter to the Edmonton Examiner

The political cartoon published in the June 2 issue of the Examiner demonstrates clear disregard and lack of a knowledge base regarding the New Democratic Party of Canada. A quick glance at electoral results from the past decade demonstrates that the NDP has attracted 1.5 million new supporters since election 2000 and was the party of choice of 2.5 million people in the last federal election. During the same time period, the Liberals had less and less support with each election. Poll after poll has shown that Canadians recognize Jack Layton's great capacity as a national leader at a time when our democratic institutions and basic values are put to a test by an arrogant and short-sighted minority government.
I would have expected negation of the voices of millions of Canadians from a reactionary paper. Until this week, I had no idea Edmonton Examiner was one.

  1. Unfortunately, they haven't put it online yet and I'm not sure how to describe it other than say that Jack Layton is shown riding a toy horse as opposed to Ignatieff on an actual horse. All I can suggest is having a look at the PDF at

  2. Gee, at that rate the NDP can expect to form the government in...73 years.

  3. Anonymous, can you explain your math? The Conservative party now governs with only 5 million votes.


I greatly appreciate your comments!
