Talked to my dad the other night. He told me that he could see himself voting for Justin Trudeau. This from a life-long NDPer, an old coal miner who can still remember them from their CCF days.
But something about Mulcair seeming doesn't sit right with him. The guy seems angry all the time and--I am looking below the surface of old dad's words here--the beard is a bit of a flop.
I should say that my dad, historically speaking, is a leading indicator. Last time his opinion shifted like this was back when he served in the armed forces. Shortly thereafter, they ended the Korean War.
