Luckily for the NDP, unlike the Democrats south of the border, they can scrap their party's name and orange motif without much blowback. And they should. The party's image is irreparable, tattered from years of negative election results and cemented in a state of mediocrity.

If you dig a little into the archives of mainstream media websites and clips, you will notice a trend where the identity politics angle is almost exclusively supported by tweets and Facebook posts from unknown individuals instead of the direct questions or opinions from the journalist or reporter covering the story. Nowadays, journalists hide behind anonymous social media posts and pretend those opinions deserve spotlight coverage in hopes of unearthing a controversial sound bite or another clickable headline.

Know What's Deeply Traumatic, Elbowgaters? Needing Assisted Dying

Joshua Ostroff

Something got lost in all this childish behaviour, especially once Tom Mulcair transitioned from apparently laughing at Trudeau losing his cool to losing his own cool and screaming that the Prime Minister was "pathetic" for accidentally elbowing NDP MP Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the chest... What got lost was the bill they were debating, Bill C-14, the government's assisted-dying legislation. And it fell further from prominence once the NDP, the party that allegedly wants to make this bill better, saw an opportunity to use the accident as political leverage against the Prime Minister and perhaps for their own leadership ambitions.

Enough Trudeaumania, Let's See Some Real Progress

Trudeau talked about feminism. He took some selfies. He appeared on the cover of several magazines. Then he and Obama made some jokes. Then he did a one-armed push up. Those are just a small sampling of his antics since taking office. And now, I think I've had just about enough. Trudeau is clearly milking his greatest strength. His likability is off the charts, but with so many important issues happening in Canada right now do we really need to constantly be reminded that our prime minister is approachable and hip?

For The Federal NDP: Power Or Purpose, Which Is It?

Glen Pearson | Posted 04.13.2017 | Canada Politics
Glen Pearson

The belief in a fairer and more just world, never fully prioritized by the other parties, has been the shining "city on a hill" for the NDP for decades and remains a stirring vision. It still sustains them as they move forward and Canadians still require their outlook. The question is: will it remain their principal and overriding passion or will their recent nearness to power have them seeking more power than purpose?

We can, moving forward, outline a clear vision of who we are, what we stand for, and what we can truly offer to Canadians... I want to know how we -- New Democrats -- will do better and I want these plans grounded in evidence-based policy reflective of our values. And I want for our members to chart the course of our party, not for what might be popular at the time or what might gain support in the short-term to guide our decisions.
