Dear Editor: Sad Day for NDP
After so many weeks of campaigning, this is what the NDP comes up with?
This is the problem with leadership races of parties that have been in opposition so long, there is no distinction between them and the criticism they hurl at the government. This was a chance to be inward looking. The choice of Dix shows that the NDP is unwilling to acknowledge the faults of their own party since they are part of the problem. The result: status quo and complacency, where change only means a new leader, not a new vision. Sad day to be NDP.
William Perry, Victoria ( NDP since 1969)
