Walkom: Peggy Nash pitches a pragmatic radicalism to her NDP
Peggy Nash is the practical radical.

The Toronto MP didnt use those words when she formally announced her bid for the New Democratic Party leadership Friday at a trendy Parkdale hotel. But thats what she meant.

The platform she sketched out to about 150 supporters is straight-up NDP orthodoxy: address social inequality; improve child care; protect the environment; deal with aboriginal poverty; and finally, boost corporate taxes to pay for it all.

You wouldnt find many in the eight-person race to replace former leader Jack Layton, arguing with that.
