Worth mentioning that once upon a time the #BurnabySouth by-election was going to be about a pipeline that suddenly had way more public support than it did before.

Why is Singh even running outside of Ontario anyway? Does the NDP still think Burnaby is their *only* shot?
I mean there’s nothing wrong per se with a leader getting parachuted into a BC riding from a million miles away... but why?

If Singh needs to be in the house *now*, why not run in a sooner by-election? Why is the NDP fixed on parachuting him in from thousands of kilometers away?
Parachuting a candidate is all about convenience. Parties do it because it’s an opportunity for something they can’t get any other way.

So why is *waiting* for the Liberals to call a byelection thousands of kilometers away from where Singh is from in Ontario a smart move?
“Help, the mean Liberals are making us wait longer to parachute our leader into a riding 3,400km away from where our leader is from and honestly we don’t even know why we want to run him there anymore because the pipeline thing fizzled somebody do something.”
Politics is the magical place where the leader trying to parachute himself into a riding 3,400km away from where he’s from in Ontario for no apparent reason anybody can see accuses *the other side* of playing political games.
There is a perfectly good byelection happening in Ontario right now, but the leader of the NDP is DEMANDING that one be called in a BC riding that as far as I can tell he has few if any connections to...

He’s from Ontario. If he wants a seat in the house so bad, run there.
