They don't need Plecas assuming they keep Nanaimo

 

They need Plecas. If this mess he started backfires on him then he's baked and theres no way the Libs will allow another of their people to be Speaker....so yes, Plecas is a big thorn in the NDP side, but they need him stable and functioning

Recall campaign revving up for Darryl Plecas at the end of January. They only need 16,400 signatures from his Abbotsford riding

 

“We have over 300 volunteers to campaign throughout the riding,” said Roy. “With having all the volunteers, we’re breaking the entire riding up to a grid system and will have every home hit, morning, mid-day, night, twice every time until every signature is collected. We have a plan.”

 

 

if that's true they have a good chance of succeeding.    53 signatures per volunteer.

The Burnaby South federal NDP candidate lives in Toronto 

There is a long history of party leaders in Canada being initially elected in by-elections where they do not live.   This is nothing new.

 

Tommy Douglas was elected as the MP from Cowichan at one point.

John A was elected as MP for Victoria 

Mulroney was initially elected in Nova Scotia

In 1990 Jean Chretien returned to parliament as leader of the Liberals after he won a by-election in New Brunswick

Stockwell Day was elected Canadian Alliance leader and then ran in a BC riding, not Alberta where he lived

When Joe Clark was elected PC leader again in 2000 he ran in Nova Scotia
