The fear of the left in Canada and the racism of Quebec

Sure is interesting watching the G and M poll the NDP to death. I suspect this their lead up for backing Harper again. This is also typical of the corporate media in Canada who irrationally fear any left leaning party. (not that the NDP is even remotely leftist anymore)

What is also interesting is how effectively Harper has manipulated the predominant racism in Quebec on the niqab and how the NDP, who had a principled view, are now being forced to come up with something to pander to the racists. Canadian politics at its usual worst.
