  • Lament for a Party that has lost its way

    Canadian Politics

    In due course, with such a meaningful platform and a dynamic leader who would support these causes, the NDP might be able to win the support of the Canadian public. Canada could then have a government that could change the course of history for this country.

  • Today’s NDP, Socialism, and the Party’s Legacy

    Canadian Politics

    What the NDP needs is a combination of its existing social progressivism with a recommitment to the principles of economic democracy and a healthy skepticism of capitalism. This, and not electoral opportunism, is the enduring legacy of the democratic socialist tradition in Canada.

  • Building Manitoba’s Fightback

    Canadian Politics

    With the 100th anniversary of the Winnipeg General Strike approaching, now is the time to build an independent Left that is not afraid of making bold political demands in the streets regardless of who is in power.

  • Devastating election result requires Tom Mulcair’s NDP to again rethink its purpose

    Canadian Politics

    Monday’s debacle comes hard on the heels of the NDP’s disastrous 2014 Ontario provincial campaign in which the party, under leader Andrea Horwath, lost three Toronto seats as well as its pivotal role in what had been a minority government.

  • Catastrophe: The NDP lost because it deserved to

    Canadian Politics

    The National Observer sat down with the 60-year-old former Quebec environment minister to learn more about his blueprint for the future of Canada’s energy and environment policy. Mulcair says he would scrap and replace the Conservative government’s current system for evaluating oil pipelines.

  • Death of a Candidacy

    Canadian Politics

    Morgan is a good advocate for challenging the apolitical apathy in youth culture which is so detrimental to NDP fortunes. So why did the party throw their candidate for Kings Hants under the bus with the 2015 campaign just a few days old?

  • The “N” in NDP Now Stands for Neoliberal

    Canadian Politics

  • ‘Heightened scrutiny’ of Mulcair should include foreign policy

    Canadian Politics

    The irony is that if Ibbitson and Maclean’s had been paying even fleeting attention, they would have noticed that many New Democrats concluded long ago that Muclair is a lassiez-faire social democrat with a cosmetic allegiance to core NDP values, particularly on foreign policy issues.
