The race to succeed Jack Layton will heat up in Cambridge on Dec. 1 as some perceived front-runners are confirmed to speak at the NDP Leadership Candidates’ forum sponsored by the Cambridge NDP.
The candidates are among nine registered to contest the leadership of Canada’s NDP, following the untimely death of Jack Layton in August. Other leadership candidates may also appear as all nine have been invited to the Cambridge event. The other candidates are: Deputy Leader Thomas Mulcair, Ottawa MP Paul Dewar, BC MP Nathan Cullen, Nova Scotia MP Robert Chisholm, and Manitoba MP Niki Ashton.
This leadership contest marks the first time in the party’s history when the newly elected leader becomes Leader of the Official Opposition and is one step from becoming Prime Minister of Canada.
