'Demonizing' NDP interim leader Turmel's membership in the Bloc Québécois close to McCarthyism, says NDP MP Martin

'Are you or have you ever been a member of the communists?' NDP MP Pat Martin said to The Hill Times. 'That’s what this ridiculous thing is starting to remind me of.' Mr. Martin said when he started in the labour movement 20 years ago, he was 'being red-baited.'
