Why did "The Singh surge" turn out to be...nothing at all?

In the end, there was no big swing at all.  There was no SWING at all.  There weren't even gains in Ontario and B.C., the places where making Singh leader was supposed to guarantee epic NDP showings.

It was all an illusion.

SOME of the furniture was saved...that's it.  

Now that we know the NDP needs a new leader-now that we know that Trudeau won't make any real concessions to a party which lost over a third of its seats...will the massive internal change that is needed to save the NDP, to save the electoral Left in Canada in any form, finally occur?

Indigenous issues largely absent from 2019 election

Reconciliation cannot be achieved if its lifespan is dictated by what carries political currency in each election. The party leaders all have a legal and moral obligation to do better.
