A few developments from the inbox.

At 12:02pm I received a note from the Nash campaign announcing that the Toronto Area Council of the United Steelworkers was endorsing Peggy Nash. The national office of the United Steelworkers had previously endorsed Brian Topp.

At 12:43pm, a note from the Topp campaign, announcing that Jeff Itcush, an activist and former NDP candidate in Montreal, who had been supporting Thomas Mulcair’s campaign, had switched his allegiance to Mr. Topp.

At 12:51pm, a note from the Mulcair campaign, announcing the endorsements of eight current or former union leaders.

All of which I report in part to observe that the pace of the NDP campaign seems to be picking up.
