NDP 'unease' surrounds Turmel's Bloc secrecy
There's a serious unease in the NDP over interim leader Nycole Turmel's memberships in two Quebec sovereigntist parties, a party staffer said Thursday.
The staffer, speaking anonymously to RDI's La période des questions, said it shows a lack of integrity that Turmel held memberships in the Bloc Québécois for four years — until weeks before she announced her NDP candidacy — and in provincial party Québec Solidaire until Tuesday.
RDI, CBC/Radio-Canada's French-language news channel, confirmed the staffer works for the NDP but agreed not to name him.
These leaks shouldn't be treated any more seriously than "senior Liberal insider" stories, but expect to see more of them now that the NDP have hit the big time - especially if the party finds itself in a leadership race.
