Dominic Cardy hasn’t ruled out joining the Conservative Party now that he’s quit the NDP, according to CBC.
Cardy announced on New Year’s day he was stepping down as leader of the New Democrats because of infighting in the party which resulted in them not winning any seats in the last election. It’s believed he had conflicts with CUPE’s boss in New Brunswick…and Danny Legere isn’t sad to see him go.
However, Cardy may not be gone from provincial politics for long. He says he has a great deal of respect for the new leader of the Conservatives, Blaine Higgs.
Cardy wasn’t the only one resigning from the NDP either. Sharon Scott-Levesque also resigned as provincial party president saying the NDP no longer represents her values for a progressive New Brunwick.
