Andrea Horwath’s internal troubles in Ontario indicative of NDP woes across the country

Andy Radia writes on the NDP’s identity struggle to become a governing party.

Outside of Manitoba, there are no NDP governments. Over the past year, they’ve lost power in Nova Scotia and let a slam-dunk election in British Columbia slip from their hands.

Will a move to the centre help the federal party in 2015? Will a move to the centre give Horwath’s NDP more seats come June 12? That remains to be seen.

What is clear, however, is that at this point in time, in Canada, a party campaigning on traditional left-ist ideas (social justice, higher taxes, battling inequality, etc…) isn’t going to form a government.
