Alex Cullen, the NDP candidate for Ottawa-West Nepean admitted public sector job cuts are likely if his party is in power following the June election, but would likely not approach the number proposed by the PC's.
The NDP! Sacking civil servants! I never thought I would see the day. And the problem with this strategy is that the vote they're trying to steal, the Tory vote...those people don't buy it. They still think the NDP are communists. And the party base, the people who've voted Orange forever...they're starting to think maybe they aren't communists, and looking at Kathleen Wynne's OLP. The NDP has convinced exactly the wrong crowd that they've abandoned their values.
So they taking it on both left and right buttock.
