Olivia Chow announced this morning she will be running for the NDP in the upcoming federal election in the same riding she represented for years. “Tom Mulcair is the only leader that can defeat Stephen Harper,” she said, indicating she doesn’t want to wait on the sidelines for change. In the meantime, she’s been allowed to take leave of her position at Ryerson University. It’s unclear as to whether or not she’ll continue to receive pay for that position, but should she be able to maintain that position & run in the election?
Should Olivia Chow be able to continue her job at Ryerson while running in the election?
