Victoria NDP MP Denise Savoie wants her party to consider a name change.
Victoria MP Denise Savoie told reporters earlier this week the 48-year-old party needs a name makeover.
"Our party was born in 1961 -- we're not new," said Ms, Savoie.
The name change is expected to be debated at the party's national convention, scheduled for mid-August in Halifax.
"The New Democrats have brought a lot to Canadian politics," Ms. Savoie said. "But we want to look forward to new challenges and see what we can do in the future."
I wonder if Denise watches Family Guy, because this reminds me of one of their cut-outs, to a Jerry Seinfeld as court-jester stand-up joke:
Good to be here in New England. And what's the deal with "New" England anyway? It's over 200 years old! Last time I checked, that's not that new.
But hmm, drop the New from New Democratic Party? Why, that would leave...Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
