As the federal New Democrats meet in Edmonton for their annual retreat, the party needs to figure out what the next step is going into the next federal election.
With the amount of press given to Justin Trudeau over the past number of weeks, a non-observer would likely think that he was the leader of the Official Opposition instead of Tom Mulcair. It also doesn’t help that the Conservatives are treating the NDP as though they’re invisible, putting all of their attention on Trudeau.
Recent polls have the NDP in third place, and I can count on one hand how many times I’ve seen Tom Mulcair’s name in a headline in recent months.
This is do or die time for Canada’s New Democrats. Will they figure out a way to woo Canadian voters? Or will they return to the position they’ve been in many, many years…third party status?
