Skeena-Bulkley MP Nathan Cullen announced he will be making a run for the federal NDP leadership.

While Cullen is a long shot, according to some, but he is going to look for support amongst the “rank-and-file members” according to an interview with the Toronto Star last Friday.

Cullen enters a race in which Brian Topp, a party strategist, is seen as a strong candidate and Romeo Saganash, a Quebec MP, have already announced their candidacies.

Martin Singh from Nova Scotia and Paul Dewar, Ottawa Centre MP are also expected to announce their bids after press time last week.
