Thomas Mulcair's local hashtag game is tight

Federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair flew into Vancouver yesterday for some press conference or another announcing some policy things.

Federal NDP leader Thomas Mulcair flew into Vancouver yesterday for some press conference or another announcing some policy things. You may remember him from a few months back when I featured him in my 500 Coffees series where I take people out for a caffeinated beverage and attempt to show you their human side. In that piece I noted that we wouldn't be doing much political coverage leading up to the federal election this October but that I was hoping to take all 3 of the leaders who have a chance at becoming our next prime minister out for a cup. I'm still waiting for Justin and Stephen's people to get in touch.

While I'm waiting, how about a look at Thomas Mulcair's local hashtag game? As his social media team posted this photo to Instagram yesterday and included our #vancouverisawesome tag they showed that they're doing a good job at tapping into where the locals are. At last glance there were more than 171,000 photos tagged with it.
