NDP inhibits internal democracy with steep leadership race entry fee | May 17 2016 | Michael Laxer | Wondering if the NDP leadership race may open up the possibility of a radical moment or shift within the party? That just got a whole lot less likely!

In the fight between Rachel Notley and the federal NDP, no one wins. | May 10 2016 | Gerry Caplan | Least of all Canadians.

The NDP must be prepared to offend labour if it's ever going to win elections | May 9 2016 | Rafe Mair | Sooner or later the NDP must choose: Do nothing, remain pure and lose; or take positive steps, get a little dirt on you and win.
Notley government navigates a profound crisis with grace and empathy | May 7 2016 | David J. Climenhaga | Rachel Notley's government seems to have found its feet at last, and in a dark, difficult moment. The challenge for the province's conservatives is not getting any easier.
Rachel Notley, May 5, 2015
Fort Mac fire overshadows an earthshaking political anniversary -- the NDP's election one year ago today | May 5 2016 | David J. Climenhaga | Recognition of Alberta's unexpected and historically earthshaking Cinco de Mayo moment is bound to be muted today in the wake of the continuing fire catastrophe in Fort McMurray.

Leap Manifesto our best chance to start the national climate conversation we sorely need | Apr 23 2016 | Miles Krauter | In response to an Albertan progressive criticizing the NDP's Leap Manifesto resolution, Miles Krauter argues not only is the Leap national in authorship and scope, it's our best way forward.
Climate change emergency shakes Canada's corporate establishment and fractures the NDP | Apr 22 2016 | Roger Annis | Canada needs a new party of the left to fight against war, militarism, austerity and ecological destruction. Part of its work is co-operative approaches with the NDP and unions on these issues.

The Leap Manifesto is a bit of a problem -- with love from an Alberta progressive | Apr 19 2016 | Bronwyn Bragg | Alberta organizer and researcher Bronwyn Bragg is not saying that now is not the time to have that conversation; she's saying this is the wrong way to have it.
There was no NDP Leap | Apr 18 2016 | Michael Laxer | All the hyperbole to the contrary, the NDP did not adopt the Leap Manifesto in Edmonton. Not even close.

In a bold move, NDP delegates save their party | Apr 15 2016 | Murray Dobbin | In the aftermath of Tom Mulcair's crushing repudiation at the NDP's convention, the party enters a period of self-reflection and reinvention that it has never experienced before.

Rather than fearing the Leap Manifesto, let's bring on the debate | Apr 15 2016 | Linda McQuaig | That silly Leap Manifesto -- giving itself away right in the subtitle, which calls for "a Canada based on caring for the Earth and one another." No wonder it provoked fury and outrage.
The Leap: Time for a reality check | Apr 14 2016 | Naomi Klein | Well, the Leap is certainly in the news. Many articles have been filled with errors and misrepresentations, which isn't surprising. We should expect more, however, from commentators on the left.
