Federal NDP poll numbers could translate into star candidates, leader says in exclusive interview

OTTAWA – Polls suggesting that the federal NDP are a contender to form government in 2015 will allow the party to recruit star candidates, including well-known figures from the business community, according to leader Thomas Mulcair.

“They’re already coming to us. The names would surprise you,” Mulcair said in an exclusive interview in his Parliament Hill office.
