Cullen the next NDP leader?

Will Cullen step up to the plate to be the next NDP leader after Mulcair was ousted?

Could Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen be the next leader of the NDP?

To some, the lack of confidence from NDP delegates to keep Tom Mulcair as the party’s leader was a shocking outcome to the convention in Edmonton this past weekend.

Delegates voted 52 per cent in favour of replacing their bearded front-man and there are already whispers of who will take on his role, and Skeena-Bulkley Valley MP Nathan Cullen’s name is on the anticipated list of potential heirs.

The environment and climate change critic has been a high-profile MP for the region since 2004. In 2012, he threw his name in the leadership race and came third.

There is clear division between those who want change and those who want to keep the status quo.

Cullen has responded to media that he’s not ready to make a decision on what his plans are, but pay attention if he does bid for leadership.

His stance on LNG goes against those in the party who support a transition from fossil fuels in the so-called Leap Manifesto. Could he lead a united party in support of responsible development?
