I want Bhutila Karpoche to be the leader. No offense to anyone else, but she's a winner.

I met Stiles at my door when she was running for school board trustee and was really impressed.

Several New Democrat MPPs rumoured to be interested in running for leader include Catherine Fife (Waterloo), Sol Mamakwa (Kiiwetinoong), Laura Mae Lindo (Kitchener Centre) and Wayne Gates (Niagara Falls). Joel Harden (Ottawa Centre) briefly considered a run, but decided against it for family reasons.

Doesn't look like Bhutila Karpoche is interested in the job...

This is the ONDP’s best chance at winning. Wishing her success both in the leadership and in 2026.

I think that she's done a great job as education critic, but I worry for both the NDP and the Liberals that if they don't make a clean break from their prior leader they will be killed by Ford in the election as another Horwath / Wynne.

The definite front runner and likely winner. I’m optimistic she’ll perform a lot better than Andrea and properly distinguish the ONDP from the OLP for people that don’t follow politics closely
