Veteran MP is feeling confident ahead of first ballot for federal party leadership

Federal NDP leadership candidate and veteran Timmins-James Bay MP Charlie Angus met with reporters on Tuesday morning as the lengthy campaign approaches its end.

“Its been nine months. A very long race. The plan from the beginning was to build this in a coherent manner. The first step was to build teams across this country. So we did heavy touring, and we established local ground teams across the country. We built on that base. We went through national debates, in every region of the country, and now we’re at the time when we’re about to pull the vote,” he said.

A total of nine official debates have taken place since March, with one final debate to be held on Sunday in Hamilton, Ontario. On Monday, first ballot voting begins by mail and online. First ballot voting ends on Oct. 1. Only registered party members can participate.
