No Democracy Pretended

The Manitoba NDP Convention and Leadership Selection is ON!

From the Winnipeg Free Press :

Even one Selinger supporter I know called the union delegate dole-out a “racket.” Frankly, it’s completely anachronistic to earmark 20 per cent of the delegates for unions in the first place, especially when union donations are banned. But when the unions can’t even get organized enough to find a few hundred NDP members among the rank-and-file, the party establishment shouldn’t be seen handing out the leftover delegate spots to whomever they please.

Is this really how a modern, First World democracy picks a premier? Really?

Nothing to see here....move along....

With Selinger at the helm, nobody gets to see the cooked books.
