The NDP always likes to crow about being the party standing up for students. At the recent Carleton clubs day while I was working the CUYL table, I can't tell you how many NDP'er came up snearing about how bad McGuinty was, and telling baldfaced CFS-fueled lies about his record on education.
Well, the NDP's actions around the York strike are proving that the NDP may be a party of standing up for it's Big Labour buddies, but it is not the party of students.
This one comment completely sums up why students cannot trust the NDP:
"I know the NDP have a leadership convention coming up and, from what I've been reading, it's been 'who can seem more anti-management at Queen's Park and put on a show?' " he said. "I think a lot of students are sick of being used as pawns."
