Churchill Keewatinook Aski Member of Parliament Niki Ashton made it official yesterday. She is running to be the next leader of the federal New Democratic Party. She made the announcement in Ottawa where she told her supporters to think big. She stated lets put our voice out there and lets take it to the next level. She said lets start with a clear statement that this is our Canada, this is our community and that this is our future.
Ashton added she made the announcement in Ottawa to recognize that her movement is a national one and the best place for that announcement is in the nation’s capital. The race to replace leader Tom Mulcair ends in October.
