'The approach I bring to politics is a deeply pragmatic one'

Nathan Cullen talks to the Toronto Star editorial board.

I don’t think the counterpoint to Stephen Harper is more Stephen Harper but from the left. I think you have to undermine his argument at its base and at its core. I think just yelling more is not going to accomplish it and I don’t think turning red in the face is going to show Canadians. I think you absolutely have to show Canadians the contrast both in policies but also in approach.

Separately, Mr. Cullen also chats with Chris Selley.
