Move is underway to run one opposition candidate. Don't count those chickens just yet
As you've described it, any "move", consumated or not, would be a significant political development that could foreshadow a merger of Canada's political left.
If true, what you broadcast is a potential game changer. As I see it, any such "move" could result in one of two situations:
A) An agreement whereby one party would vacate the playing field in order to increase the odds of success of another party's candidate
B) A joint NDP-Liberal candidate which would constitute a re-drawing of Canada's political map.
For now we'll set aside the far more complex questions of how the boards of the respective Liberal and NDP Cgy Centre riding associations would share resources, an especially complex challenge given the NDP has a centralized system for financing elections whereas the Liberals (and Conservatives) have a de-centralized approach.
Instead, for now I think the important question is one of the credibility of this "move". And here is where I come to my question...
Is it being lead by grassroots activists or is this move being stick handled by actual party members at the EDA and National HQ level? I strongly suspect the answer lies in the former but you seem like a very dialed in fellow so I'll look forward to getting an education.
