Dooney's Dictionary

Robinson, Svend

Gay activist M.P. and euthanasia enthusiast from B.C. He’s the most intelligent NDP MP since T.C. Douglas, and, given that he’s being sent to Ottawa by a working class Vancouver suburb, a man who obviously knows how to run a local constituency. These have been, so far, minor accomplishments. Too bad the Federal NDP didn’t have the courage to elect him leader. If it had, the party could have self-destructed in much more interesting and educatives ways than it has.
