If you are an NDP supporter this picture should bother you. Here's why.
1) It shows many that the NDP has a real lack of knowledge of economy. Harper had nothing to do with the failings of Target. As has been discussed by many, the reason Target is closing is Target.
2) Target is an American company that you expressed concern coming into Canada.
3) Your position is to treat workers fairly. What is interesting is while you are talking about the employees of Target, there have been thousands of people laid off from oil companies that you have said NOTHING about.
The perception is this. While you think you are coming across as standing for"little person" and "equal rights" it would seem to me that you are standing up for the "trendy". Causes that is what you think you will get attention for.
This picture backfired. Big Time.
It reminded many why they do not want you anywhere near from governing.
That should bother you.
