Hello, I'm new...

Hi there, I am a newcomer to this community. I found it by accident, searching out stories about the Conservatives' robocall fiasco. Glad to be here, and I look forward to great discussion on this board. Thanks.

Welcome to babble, fixcanada, where we try to make your name come true!

Thanks, Unionist...I hope so too, because right now we seem to be in terrible shape.

I have noticed there's a lot of NDP leadership news here. I've tried to get into it, but I don't really consider myself 100% aligned with the NDP platform. I'm a bit of a mix of NDP, Liberal, and Green...and perhaps some party out there waiting to exist, but simply does not as of yet. Then again, if I am ever to have anything to do with the Liberals it better be because they've changed radically from being corporate apologists.

Ahh jeez.  I was going to say there's this tiny club you see...but then you finished the thought with a preference for an amalgam of sorts.  Some kind of stitched together Frankenstein it would appear.

I guess we'll put fixcanada down as supporting Cullen. Wink

Fixcanada, this is not an NDP supporter discussion board, no matter how much the recent volume of leadership race discussion might seem to attest to the contrary. You are indeed welcome!

Nice misdirection, Unioinist. Wink Fixcanada will soon be part of the NDPBorg. Resistance is futile!Laughing

hi fixcanada, and everyone - I'm new here too, and was also motivated to join the fray by the same fiasco (though there are many issues surrounding the current gov which could easily have inspired)

not really expecting much to be resolved - ie 'fixed' - by 'discussing' it, since, unfortunately, I'm only too aware of the deep involvement, with the Cons, of the vast majority of media covering this, among other issues, who (if their track record is anything to go on) will do their level (if you can call it that) best to ensure that the robocall fiasco (and others) is subsumed, in the minds of yer average Canuck, by a lot of fluff - in other words, fixcanada, the 'fix', for Canada, is already 'in'!

still, I need an outlet...
