For the second time in less than a year the leader of the federal opposition will visit Vancouver Island.

But, unlike last spring, The NDP’s Thomas Mulcair will not make a stop in the Cowichan.

Mulcair’s convoy¬†has stops planned for¬†Comox and Port Alberni today (Wed) and tomorrow he’ll be in Parksville and Nanaimo, before taking off for the mainland.

Last year Mulcair and his wife Catherine made a stop in Duncan to tour the Cowichan Green Community’s Community Garden with MP Jean Crowder.
