Actor, director and social activist Sarah Polley is throwing her support behind Peggy Nash in the NDP’s leadership contest.

Polley put out a statement Wednesday announcing her endorsement. She said she believes that of all eight candidates in the race (originally there were nine but Robert Chisholm dropped out last month), Nash is the one with the greatest ability to reach out to people who may not have supported the NDP in the past.

“Peggy is an intensely principled leader with proven respect for grassroots social movements,” Polley said.

“I am supporting Peggy Nash because she understands the big economic picture and is actively pursuing equality as an economic strategy. She understands how important both public and private sector activities are to a strong Canadian economy and how economic planning is crucial for the environment and the quality of the jobs being developed in all sectors.”
