The Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union (COPE), which represents Ontario NDP staff, issued a blistering news release Tuesday accusing the party under Leader Andrea Horwath of secretly “attacking” its own staff while publicly supporting workers’ rights

It’s because real socialism has never been tried! Federal NDP ended 2017 deep in the red, filings show

Jagmeet Singh roasted by left-wingers for praising John McCain

Singh’s tweet was met with incredulous anger from many Twitter users. Many people expressed anger that the leader of Canada’s left-wing third party would praise a staunch Republican conservative who supported military interventions around the world. Most of the criticism appeared to come from people with progressive politics, who may be traditional supporters of the NDP.

Everybody hates a traitor.

Rex Murphy: Jagmeet Singh’s natty yet ineffectual failure to launch

I believe it was a theory in the early days of Jagmeet Singh’s rise to the top of the NDP (a hillock, not a mountain) that he was just the man to take on Justin Trudeau, on Mr. Trudeau’s own turf. The word “natty” occurred a lot in those assessments, there being a whole harvest of articles about Mr. Singh’s fastidious personal style. No less an oracle than BuzzFeed — Debrett’s for Valley girls — declared him the “most stylish politician in Canada by like a million kilometres” (a whole lot).

Kelly McParland: Jagmeet Singh might as well send Rachel Notley a cake shaped like a middle finger

Jagmeet Singh’s days as federal NDP leader have been so ill-starred you almost feel sorry for the guy.

That’s not a good thing. Politicians want to look bold, decisive and successful, not confused, unlucky and accident-prone. Singh can’t get a break. The last good thing that happened to him was winning the New Democratic Party leadership race 10 months ago, and so much has gone wrong since then you have to wonder whether he wishes he’d never entered.

Horwath loses cool, and credibility, over Toronto council protest

Pandemonium is the best word to describe the goings-on at the Ontario Legislature last week.

NDP Opposition Leader Andrea Horwath verbally threw the kitchen sink at Premier Doug Ford, wildly making allegations Ford had a secret plot on municipal elections, acted like a dictator and carried out and engaged in the “most anti-democratic action this province has seen in years.”

I hope she keeps her “Batshit Crazy” going.
