Take a stand, NDP!

As NDP leader Carole James oscillates on twinning the Port Mann, two factions within her party have formed. On the one side, you have the folks who understand the transportation issues facing the south Fraser--NDP MLAs like Bruce Ralston and Jagrup Brar--and support both twinning the bridge and improving transit.

Then you have the folks led by NDP MLA David Chudnovsky who have the NDP Agriculture Committee as members of the Gateway 40 anti-twinning coalition and now has a resolution to the NDP membership to oppose twinning.

Public Eye Online has the story--and my comments.

I can't believe I'm saying it, but I'm cheering for Ralston and Brar. Common sense has to win out here.
