Cliff, the propietor of 'Rusty Idols' has a thoughtful take on what went down at the FedDip convention:
Here is his lede, but go read it all if you're interested:
I'm a proud New Democrat and I've always felt more sympathy for the left wing of the party. I believe the party made a tragic and mindbogglingly stupid decision to run too far to the right during the election.
Mulcair had to go and deserved to lose.
But the vote to study and debate the Leap Manifesto (NOT adopt it, an important distinction you can expect to be roundly ignored in the coming days and weeks.) massively overcompensated and took the party too far left...
Cliff's follow-up post is worth having a look at also.
Mr. Beer 'N Hockey was there as well and he has been blogging this weekend also.....Beer looks at things a little differently than Cliff, but he is no less thoughtful.
