MP Nathan Cullen weighed in on the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s cease and desist letter to the protest camp on Lelu Island.
In today’s media scrum, Cullen says he’s concerned with the tone and contents of the letter.
He says he’ll be in contact with federal Transport Minister Marc Garneau.
Cullen also took issue with the letter’s claim that it speaks with the authority of the federal government, and that’s something he wants clarified with the transport minister.
Cullen also spoke about whether he’ll make a leadership bid for the federal NDP after Tom Mulcair failed a confidence vote at the party’s Edmonton convention.
He says while he’s inclined not to run, he’s still open to the idea, and will be talking with his family and colleagues.
Cullen says expectations have changed within the NDP, and that simply being “the conscience” of the country isn’t enough for delegates anymore.
