Tom Mulcair shoulders blame for dismal election results in letter to supporters
OTTAWA – NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has written to supporters to take responsibility for the dismal results of the October election campaign.
He says he could have done a better job.
His letter follows the release of an interim report from a post-mortem working group which says the campaign failed to resound with voters.
Mulcair says the report provides a convincing summary of some of the specific lapses in the campaign’s preparation and execution.
NDP President Rebecca Blaikie has said many New Democrats believe the campaign lacked a strong, simple narrative.
A complete report is expected to be released in March, ahead of the party’s April convention, where the party will vote on Mulcair’s future as leader
