Too-Timid NDP Could Use A Shot Of Conservative Party's Boldness

Either the NDP is simply another party supporting the economic and political status quo or it is so afraid of being called "radical" by the mainstream media that it self censors to the point of political blandness. NDP members are right to deride the ideas flowing from the Conservative leadership race, but they are wrong to dismiss it as a circus. The Conservatives' boldness and willingness to amplify their agenda is something the NDP should mimic.

Why Canada Cannot Give In To Isolationism

We are entering a new era of identity politics -- the increasingly common practice of political campaigns throwing actual policy to the wind and instead playing directly to our emotions -- this method is defined by selfies, sunny-ways, hope and change, fear and division and class anger turned into blind rage.
