I am very pleased to welcome Mr Billy Cann, leader of the Island Party of Prince Edward Island, as a new member of the New Democratic Party of PEI.
Sometimes one has to sample every dish before one finds the one that is most palatable.
Though I have been a New Democrat since 1985, I, too, came from another party that once inspired but (I felt) failed to live up to its promise. The New Democrats will not insult the the sincerity of a convert, but will help newcomers fully understand and embrace fully our commitment to transparency, Responsibility and Fairness. People who join the NDP are o embracing change from the status quo; but Islanders need not fear newcomers changing the NDP into the status quo.
