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.
To 'Leap' or to sleep? That is the question. | Apr 14 2016 | Ole Hendrickson | Why is talk of not building new pipelines and leaving fossil fuels in the ground now so divisive? We've made our commitment at the Paris climate talks -- now let's honour it.

The federal NDP's 'Leap' of faith advocates and Alberta's right-wing opposition: Strange bedfellows? | Apr 13 2016 | David J. Climenhaga | Call me Pollyanna, but I'm inclined to think this situation, as truly damaging as it appears, can be managed and even exploited.

The way ahead for the NDP | Apr 12 2016 | Duncan Cameron | Three challenges await the NDP membership: animating riding associations, renewing party policy, and restructuring the party. It's time to replace trickle-down politics with democratic party politics.
Tom Mulcair exits stage right -- too late and not soon enough! | Apr 11 2016 | Michael Laxer | Tom Mulcair's defeat in Edmonton was richly deserved. What it signifies is another matter.

Mulcair's out. How did it happen and what's next? | Apr 11 2016 | Karl Nerenberg | When the NDP chose Tom Mulcair in 2012 it was mostly because he looked like a seasoned pro who knew how to win. When he did not deliver victory, or something close, his days were inevitably numbered.
Clean drinking water is more important than dirty oil | Apr 11 2016 | Adam Scott | The Energy East pipeline would threaten the drinking water of more than 5 million Canadians.

The mystery of NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair's long fall: Why didn't he see it coming? | Apr 11 2016 | David J. Climenhaga | When a political leader says he'll hang in there if he gets the endorsement of 70 per cent of a convention's delegates, that's usually an indication he expects to get about 70 per cent!
