Jedi Thomas Mulcair Wishes You A Happy Star Wars Day

The NDP leader is the Jedi we're looking for.

Today is "Star Wars Day," an occasion in which fans of the fantasy franchise say, "May the fourth be with you" (today being May 4, 2015).

Thomas Mulcair, leader of the federal NDP, marked the day by tweeting an amusing photo of himself as a Jedi.

Mulcair's not the only NDP member who seized the day. The Alberta NDP posted the following tweet, reminding people to vote in Tuesday's election, in which the party leads the polls.

Note to Mulcair: an orange lightsaber would put its colour much closer to that of a Sith lord.

Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau also joined in the fun by tweeting a graphic promoting his middle class tax plan.

And, on Parliament Hill, the Peace Tower bells played a rendition of the "Star Wars" theme song.
