The federal NDP needs a new leader, someone with fresh thinking. Why not turn to a punk rocker?
Charlie Angus, a multi-term member of Parliament, announced last night that he’s making a run for the leadership. And what better place to break the news than the Horseshoe Tavern? Angus saw his first punk show there (the infamous Last Pogo in 1977) and played there many times with his old band, L’Etranger (which featured fellow MP NDPer Andrew Cash) and more recently with his current group, Grievous Angels. Also at the event were Cash, Ron Hawkins (Lowest of the Low), Jason Collett (Broken Social Scene) and Andy Maize (Skydiggers).
Read more about Charlie’s leadership bid as we reminisce with this L’Etranger hit from the 80s.
