Is Tom Mulcair too afraid of the NDP's extreme left to fire Linda McQuaig?
An NDP candidate was just canned because of extremist, hateful, anti-Israel bigotry.
But it was no worse than some of the despicable statements made about Israel by Linda McQuaig.
fetish for socialist dictators like Hugo Chavez.
McQuaig has already made her party look foolish, and required a party spokesman to distance the NDP from her comments within the first two weeks of what will be a long campaign. There's no telling how many times that will repeat.
Is Thomas Mulcair too afraid of provoking the extreme left-wing in the NDP to bounce a high-profile crackpot like McQuaig?
If he is, it will prove to be good news to the rival Liberal and Conservative parties. If Mulcair lacks the nerve to lance a boil like McQuaig, the other two parties will be more than happy to watch her fester and infect the public's perception of the NDP and its leader.
