    NDP planning on going up on the air after Saturday in order to define whoever they select as their next leader before the Tories have a chance do it for them.

    The NDP, at its federal council meeting in January, set aside millions of dollars in a fund that will be used to introduce its new leader to Canadians, but more importantly, define him or her before the Conservatives move.

    They want to attack first.

    New Democrats have watched what Conservatives were able to do with former Liberal leaders Stéphane Dion and Michael Ignatieff — and are now trying to do to interim leader Bob Rae.

    The NDP ads will be in the living rooms of Canadians within days of Saturday’s vote, the outline of the ads are ready to go and all leadership candidates have been informed of the plan and given their endorsements.

    There is one key to the NDP strategy — get ahead of the Conservatives and put them on the defensive, rather than pushing back against an incoming Conservative missile.
