Not directly NDP related, but Darrell is the only party leader with season tickets to the Rainmen, Eric did a campaign event for the NDP and, according to Frank Magazine, the NDP hired Nancy Sheppard on contract to help out with PR work.
I wouldn’t expect this to have a substantive impact on the operation of the Rainmen. The MetroCentre is managed by Trade Centre limited which is a provincial corporation, but it’s safe to say that the interim president, Scott Ferguson, was a vice president before that and is likely to stay on as president in the long term. The one impact that this could have is Darrell and his wife Kelly being too busy to renew their season tickets. I will try to get a hold of him and ask.
In self indulgent note: The CBC read a hilarious e-mail that I wrote on the air. Good times.
