Thomas Mulcair, the new leader of the NDP, makes his first public address with the Economic Club of Canada in Ottawa.

Mr. Mulcair spoke to a full house at the Fairmont Chàteau Laurier on April 5th, 2012, taking the opportunity to deliver poignant criticisms of the Conservative government’s budgetary commitments, arguing that the current state of federal affairs will leave an unsustainable debt to future generations. Mr. Mulcair emphatically noted that his party was not, as his opponents have claimed, anti-trade, and clarified their strong support for trade done in a fair and equitable way. His remarks further outlined the future direction of the NDP in Canada, promoting the party as one fully capable and prepared to assume government.
