My name is Brian and I live in Debert, Nova Scotia. Some of you may know me from Twitter. Basically, my story is that I was a member of the NDP from around 2001 until 2006, then I joined the Liberal Party from 2006 until 2011 when I came back to the NDP.
I guess I'd be on the right of the NDP. I'm a strong defender of Israel and Jewish rights, I believe that the Senate should be reformed not abolished, I don't agree with straight PR, I have an iffy opinion of unions and I tend toward traditional social values. But what brought me to the NDP in the first place, and the reason I returned this past year, is the belief in social justice and equality for all Canadians. When I examine all the parties out there, only the NDP consistently comes up as looking out for working Canadians, families, children and seniors.
I look forward to productive discussion with you all.
