Politics NDP working hard to recruit new candidates in New Brunswick, spokesperson says

A spokesperson for NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh insists the party is working hard to recruit new candidates and get its message out to the people of New Brunswick.

The comments come after former New Brunswick NDP MP Yvon Godin expressed concerns in a CBC News interview regarding the amount of time Singh has spent in the province ahead of the October election.

Godin also told the broadcaster he is “not proud” of what Singh is doing.

Godin represented the New Brunswick riding of Acadie-Bathurst from 1997 until he retired in 2015.

The New Democrats have yet to nominate candidates in the province’s 10 ridings.

Singh’s spokesperson says the party is confident it will be able to put forward candidates in all of those battlegrounds.

Melanie Richer says people have shared their interest in representing the NDP in most of the ridings, and the nomination process is following its due course.

She also says Singh plans to be in Atlantic Canada during the campaign and would love to make a stop in the province to share the party’s vision with voters.

“They can count on us to be on their side and put their interests first,” she said in a statement.
