NDP Leadership Hopeful: Nathan Cullen

He points out he's the only NDP leadership candidate who's already defeated a Tory MP to get elected. Nathan Cullen is also the only one calling for cooperation with the Liberals in ridings held by Conservatives. And as a BC MP, he's also got his own ideas on pipelines, resources and energy.

NDP Leadership Hopeful: Nathan Cullen

We started this segment with some reaction from the audience at yesterday's NDP leadership debate in Montreal.

The race has been criticized for a lack of fireworks since the contenders have similar views. But one candidate's ideas are undeniably polarizing. Nathan Cullen suggests cooperating with rival Liberal and Green Party candidates in the next election. The idea's been flatly rejected by the other contenders, and it's not really on the radar of the other parties.

Nathan Cullen is the MP for Skeena-Bulkley Valley in northwest British Columbia. He beat the Conservative incumbent in his first federal election in 2004 and has held the riding ever since. Nathan Cullen was in Montreal today.
