Valpy, Michael

Long-time Globe & Mail columnist and surprise downtown Toronto NDP candidate in the 2000 Federal election. Valpy is in reality a classic Trudeau Liberal who might have ended up heading the Federal NDP had its moronic economic policies and its catatonic leader not sandbagged him before he got off the ground. That his ideas are well to the left of current NDP thinking demonstrates just how far to the right Canadian politics has drifted—and that he appears to be headed for points increasingly New Age and, er, vapid in the aftermath of his political defeat is simply depressing.
