TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2012 /CNW/ - After analyzing all respective
candidates, the Canadian Arab Federation is proud to endorse Mr. Brian
Topp to be the leader of the New Democratic Party. We believe that
Brian's experience as a party strategist and policy maker separates him
from the rest of the candidates. Aside from working in the heart of a
highly successful provincial government in Saskatchewan, Brian worked
under Ed Broadbent in the 80's and was the national campaign director
under the late Jack Layton in the 2000's before being elected as the
party president in May of 2011. This political background along with
Brian's experience in the private sector and the labor movement gives
him a fusion of experience fit for the leader of the New Democratic
We applaud Brian's dedication to social democracy and fighting for
Canadians across the country. Canada has unfortunately regressed in the
areas of social and economic equality and we believe in Brian's plan to
bring the country back to the international forefront in these areas.
These issues along with his stance on foreign policy, more directly to
the Middle East, have given us the confidence to stand directly behind
him on his path to the leadership position of Canada's official
For these reasons above, we the Canadian Arab Federation will support
Brian Topp in his campaign for the leader of the New Democratic Party.
