Saturday Photo: Tom Mulcair in 24 Sussex Drive, Not Stornoway

It was quite a weekend. After the delays in voting due to a cyberattack, our man Thomas Mulcair was elected to the NDP leadership.

But the ever-creative youth team spent the time between rounds of voting making buttons (the demand was intense!) and building a small city on the floor of the convention city. Here's where they'd like to see Mr. Mulcair: at 24 Sussex Drive, the official residence of the Prime Minister.

Just realized that he could move to Stornoway, the official residence of the leader of the official opposition. Will be interesting to see if he and Catherine do that.

You are probably right in that Mulcair has the personality and the roots in the Québec delegation to take on Harper, but it is a sad day for the Palestinian people, as now it is hard indeed to say which party leader (Harper, Mulcair or Rae) takes the hardest and most uncritical line in support of whatever the Israeli government is doing to oppress the indigenous people.

And of course, I want all people in Palestine/Israel to be able to coexist and thrive. That will never happen if the current Israeli government's intransigence and theft of Palestinian lands in the occupied territories continues unchallenged.
