Amazing Massive Rabble Article on Lenore Zann adds depth to a month of encouraging press.

Lenore Zann has been getting some pretty good press. The Chronicle Herald has noted her strength and grit:
The Chronicle Herald Howe Room

Graham Steele, in his new role as a Political Analyst for CBC, wrote his insights into the NSNDP Leadership race, concluding about Lenore in this way:

“She’s also a dedicated constituency worker, evidenced by the fact she retained true-blue Truro even when the provincial tide was running against the NDP.

Her background as a performing artist makes her distinctly different than the usual middle-aged male lawyers, doctors and teachers that we’re accustomed to seeing in leadership roles.

Speaking as a middle-aged lawyer myself, I think we’ve had our turn.”

Graham Steele at CBC News Nova Scotia

Then Michael Gorman writing in the “Howe Room” at the Chronicle Herald again, positioned Lenore to win. He said in the article, and over the phone to our campaign later:
“Lenore is well positioned to win the Leadership”
Positioned to win because she avoids being locked into the ‘well-ensconced arms’ of a left right split that might divide the NSNDP, being acceptable to the wide diversity of the party, as he wrote:

At times in the party’s history — perhaps most notably on the election night of Oct. 8, 2013 — there has been little love lost between the two sides. Depending on where things stand in the dynamic between party members who closely identify with one of those two groups, this is where Zann — more of a free agent when it comes to party allegiances — could have an advantage via the preferential ballot.

And now there is a massive, 6,000 word in depth interview with Lenore examining in very personal detail, who Lenore Zann is, and what her life and struggles have been. It is a compelling portrait; a story of adventure and redemption, hard work and insight, strength and courage, it’s quite beautiful.

“And at that moment, in that bathroom in Los Angeles, I had what they call a moment of grace, an epiphany.”

It is too long to post the article here, but it is very much worth your time to read. We think it’s vital to the race that it is widely read. We should know just who this courageous woman is, please, click the article title below and go read, it is an emotionally moving, and admirable, story.
