CBC reports that Ed Broadbent will not re-offer in Ottawa Centre, as his wife Lucille is in poor health.
The NDP that Ed Broadbent came up through to lead is not the NDP that we know today. It's doubtful that Ed could have become leader of the humorless, over-educated and under-informed New Left ideologues who dominate it today. The man has too much fundamental decency and respect for people and Parliament.
Goodbye, Ed, you will be missed, and best wishes for Lucille's health.
