Just my two cents.

Really bizarre, considering he "came out" at Winnipeg's Gay parade a month ago. Do you think he is pulling a Kevin Spacey?

There are some gay guys (a minority) who think it's ok for them to molest women because they're gay and it "doesn't mean anything".

There are also straight men who do this to gay men, women who do this to gay men and other women, etc.

It could be a situation like that where he just has a really fucked up sense of personal boundaries and thinks his gender or sexual orientation acts as a free pass for messed up inappropriate behaviour.

As already mentioned, he came out as bisexual, not gay, so the "doesn't mean anything" defense wouldn't really apply.

It looks like Lamont is going to try and steal NDP votes. That could make things tough for the left in the next election as they might split the vote allowing the PC's to run away with the next election. It will be interesting to see if Lamont can use this momentum to the Liberals advantage.

I wonder how much the Party gets in funding for reaching Official Party Status.

I think Lamont will attract a good number of NDP voters not comfortable with Kinew’s checkered history. I could see them parking their vote with the Liberals this time. Kinew will be pushed out and unless Lamont solidifies those voters, they will go back to the NDP in 2024.
