Last week, the United Food & Commercial Workers Canada gave its full support to Federal New Democratic Party (NDP) Leader candidate Thomas Mulcair.

‘Among a number of inspiring and qualified candidates, Tom stands out as the best person to move forward and create a new legacy for working people and the NDP in this country,’ says Local 175 President Shawn Haggerty.

Mulcair has a long history of political involvement and in 2007 Jack Layton named Mulcair his Quebec Lieutenant. After Mulcair’s victory in Outremont, Quebec, normally a Liberal stronghold, Layton also named him Co-Deputy Leader of the NDP.
