John Rafferty – “I do believe that he has made a tremendous mistake today”


John Rafferty MPOTTAWA – LEADERS LEDGER – Having worked and served next to Bruce, through good times and tough times, I want to say first that I respect him as a colleague and a parliamentarian. However, I do believe that he has made a tremendous mistake today with his announcement.

I will continue to work hard, day in and day out, with Tom Mulcair and my New Democrat colleagues so that we can undo much of the damage that has been done to our human rights, the environment, and the Northwestern Ontario economy by the Harper Conservative government and the Liberal governments before them.

I believe that, under Tom’s leadership, Canada’s New Democrats are ready and can be trusted to govern in the public’s interest if and when we are given that responsibility by the people of Canada.
