I’m burning my NDP membership

For the record, yes, I am a card-carrying member of the NDP, and have been since 1969.

The NDP is a party of which I have been proud to be a card-carrying member.

Lately, though, the party has made some questionable choices I find distasteful.

We’ve got serious problems, and we need serious people, if we are to become a better party.

Burning my membership card is one answer.

If you want to talk about character and social values, fine. Just tell me where and when, and I’ll show up.

But if this party is to truly evolve to be considered a government contender, it needs the right people at the helm, and the rhetoric and sleaze of late, must go.
