As I discussed more fully here, with a unified right and stable party on the left, the Liberals are in an ideological void. With the NDP's new rebranding effort, I surmised it was part of a natural move to try and become the party of the left.
Now we're hearing word of the NDP preparing attack ads against Iggy. This should come as no surprise to folks who have been paying attention. Nevertheless, Liberal supporters seemed shocked at the move.
To my Liberal friends: buckle in and hold tight, because the NDP is making its move.
