I don't know what the dippers are thinking adopting the Leap Manifesto!!
The implications of this document are profound. They have just destroyed any chance their party had in BC, AB or SK (except perhaps for a couple of DT Vancouver ridings that could just go Green in any event).
They will lose QC as well, having just crucified Mulcair like they did. QC isn't traditional NDP territory anyway.
Most of the Maritimes rely on a resource based economy. The dippers might still do OK in Halifax with that city's civil service heavy economy, but the rest of Atlantic Canada is now a write-off.
The NDP might still win about 8-10 seats in traditional areas of Ontario, like the GGHA, metro Windsor and perhaps NW Ontario, but that's it.
I doubt that the NDP could win any more than 15 seats nationwide.
Maybe they should just throw in the towel and merge with the Green Party. Somehow, I think there are fewer looney type people amongst the Greens these days than there is amongst the NDP.........
