We can't be in #HamOnt for the #NDP Leadership Showcase because of the sickbug running through our house.

BUT one of Ellie's goodnight songs every night is Diamonds In the Snow by Charlie Angus NDP - NPD.

She's started to sing the end bits of the lines. She can't sing it at the showcase but she can shoot a little message of support out to our favourite candidate.

#GoCharlieGo #gotyourback I want to tell my kid that the next PM's guitar once rode in her car seat on a visit to Brantford :)
