Wanted: Bilingual New Brunswick Socialist. Must be willing to work for free.

The CBC website is still glitchy today, so I can't provide the link, but the New Brunswick provincial NDP leader, Alison Brewer, has stepped down as head of the party, citing her inability to keep working in an unpaid position.

Her successor faces a huge task. The party was decimated in the September election, and is facing a massive uphill battle to rebuild. The new leader, in my opinion, must be fluently bilingual and an excellent communicator. The party needs to get its message out, and this should be its top priority.

Mind you, the fact that this is an unpaid position is going to make the job less attractive. I don't know how many champagne socialists we have in this province, who are willing to work hard for no financial return. It would seem that fundraising is also going to be a key element of the new leader's job responsibilities.

Any takers?

Well, I was giving it a thought, but I'd have to pretty much leave Mount A.

Plus, I might be leaving to Alberta to find work... But if I would be allowed to lead from Fort McMurray, I'm in!
