A priority resolution to be presented at the federal NDP’s policy convention next weekend calls on the party to adopt a code of conduct to guarantee “equitable and humane” treatment of campaign volunteers by party staff.
The resolution is among 15 priority resolutions chosen for the party’s policy convention in Montreal next weekend. Priority resolutions are most likely to wind up actually being debated and voted upon.
Other non-priority resolutions, which delegates may choose to bump up into the priority category, are to be released later today.
For the most part, the priority resolutions are not particularly controversial, reflecting positions advanced by New Democrat MPs in the House of Commons and Leader Tom Mulcair’s determination to present a moderate alternative to the governing Conservatives.”
