The case for Nathan Cullen


Shortly before this past weekend’s membership deadline, Nathan Cullen won the endorsements of two social media outlets, based primarily on his promise of cooperation with other parties.

Youth-led boasts a membership of 80,000 — roughly the same as the NDP’s membership at the start of the seven-month leadership campaign. Avaaz has more than 13 million members worldwide, 604,547 of them in Canada. “These two groups coming on board is huge for us,” Cullen, a British Columbia MP, said in an interview. “They have networks that go far, far beyond normal party structures. … The sheer number, that’s absolutely staggering.”

All the same, Greg Fingas raises various questions about how Mr. Cullen’s plan for joint nominations would actually work.
