To Ed Broadbent, Roy Romanow, Joy MacPhail, Shirley Douglas and a half dozen New Democrat MPs, Brian Topp adds the support of the United Steelworkers.

“Under Stephen Harper working families are falling further and further behind,” said Neumann. “That’s why we need a federal leader who has what it takes to beat Stephen Harper and to govern well with strong New Democrat values. That leader is Brian Topp.  And the United Steelworkers is proud to strongly endorse Brian to become the next leader of the NDP.”
