In remarks made at Nash’s Toronto Town Hall, Schein described his decision to support Nash as carefully considered:
“From the beginning, I’ve said that my choice was going to be based on finding a candidate who has the language skills to hold onto our success in Quebec, who has a solid foundation in progressive and movement politics, and who is a real social democrat.”
“Our leader has got to be Peggy.”
