NDP goes negative in bid to take Montreal riding from Liberals

Thomas Mulcair made it clear this week that he plans to go negative in his bid to steal seats from his rivals.

The NDP Leader and his team face a big fight in the Nov. 25 by-election in Bourassa, a riding that has been mostly Liberal since its creation in the 1960s. But it’s a tempting prize for a party that holds a large majority of seats in Quebec, and needs to add to its tally to win the 2015 general election.
