Niki Ashton attaquée pour son soutien aux droits des Palestiniens


Yesterday, B’nai Brith viciously attacked NDP Leadership candidate Niki Ashton for speaking at a rally for Palestinian human rights in Montreal this past weekend.

Niki Ashton has stood up for Palestinian human rights; now it’s our turn to stand up for her.

To Ms. Niki Ashton:

    A former NDP member I now find that I’m more effective as a persuader as an individual. I guess I’m not much of a team player although it has worked out that I have voted NDP nationally and provincially in every election save one since 1965. Always as the result of thought rather than habit.
