There was no NDP Leap

Michael Laxer
All the hyperbole to the contrary, the NDP did not adopt the Leap Manifesto in Edmonton. Not even close.

The Leap: Time for a reality check

Female leadership for the NDP

Like many progressives, I was sorely disappointed by Megan Leslie's recent announcement that she won't run for the leadership of the Party, and I sincerely hope that she changes her mind. She's quite literally the perfect candidate - personable, youthful, likeable, articulate, smart, relatively well-known, pragmatic enough for moderates, activist street cred. to satisfy the purists, and she's a woman. There is an enormous deficit of female leadership at the federal level, and Elizabeth May, while a great MP, isn't exactly an effective leader (the Greens aren't always progressive either).
