Canadians need to have the NDP leader answer some questions. He has to clarify exactly where he stands.
So first of all we don't really know the real Thomas Mulcair. He leads a socialist party and has in the past praised the great British conservative leader and Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher. He also spoke against unions.
Then in 2007 he was making moves to join the Conservative Party of Canada in as an advisor which he now denies. They offered him a salary of $180,000 but it wasn't enough for him instead he wanted $300,000.
The latest is all his spending promises and how he's going to pay for it all. He has an $8 billion hole in his plan.
New NDP spending promise when fully implemented. This total does not even include 125 promises not yet costed. But even the NDP’s job killingthe hook for $8 billion. This means the NDP will impose massive tax hikes on Canadian families – on top of the tax hikes the NDP has already promised.

The Mainstreet Research survey found just 21 per cent of Albertans feel optimistic about the economy in the next year, a drop of 20 percentage points from May. Although 40 per cent said they felt good about their household’s financial situation in the coming months, that number has fallen 12 percentage points in the past three months.
