QS and the NDP: Unofficial Alliance?
I was reading a book on NDP history the other day and was amazed at how much QS reminds me of the early days of the CCF, the NDP precurser (I was also amazed that some of the CCF's precursers governed, named the United Farmers). This in a way goes to explaining all the connections I keep hearing about between the NDP and QS. Also I believe what was left of the rogue,Quebec wing of the NDP merged into QS. So what do people think of the relationship between QS and the NDP and the possible exchange of ideas and voluneers? What does this unofficial connection effect the evolution of these parties? Could QS help pull the NDP to the left and could the NDP help pull QS towards federalism, or at least automony? After all QS already once almost dumped soveriegnty I believe in a close vote did it not? I keep hearing the alot of our Qebec volunteers and staff are allied to QS, which means QS's staff are benifiting from the expertise and training from the NDP. I believe in fact this lead to some complaining by other parties during a bielection didn't it?
