Friday marks the final day that interim NDP and Opposition leader Nycold Turmel will stand in question period as leader of the party.
It was unquestionable a tough job for her and jumping from a brand new MP to leading the main opposition party must have been daunting, especially given that she had to face up to a majority Conservative government.
Turmel has said this about her leaderhip of the party:
We had to grieve Jack Layton [and] then I had to learn, pretty fast, the job. It was a big challenge. I had to learn everything at the same time...I won't say we under performed...I would say, yes, we had some challenges in the fall with all the new people to be known, to be recognized for their experience.
So what is your opinion of Turmel's term as leader of the NDP and of the Official Opposition?
Also, what do you make of her decision to remove the critic positions of leadership candidates and her censuring of MP's Rafferty and Hyer for voting to abolish the long gun registry?
