I have voted nothing but NDP for over 40 years. But if they do not reinstate the candidate that was forced to resign because of criticism of Israel’s policies, I cannot vote for them. By taking this action, the party has joined forces with those who will silence criticism of Israel. If I vote for them, I will be doing the same.
This is a huge conundrum for someone like me because we have a right wing government here that is ripping our country to shreds. And just when it looks like the progressive NDP might take power nationally for the first time ever, they go an pull a stupid stunt like this. If I and others turn away from the party, we may be enabling the Conservatives, whose horrible policies re Israel are outlined in the article, to win again.
