"Support for the NDP has also slipped since the election, falling from 30.6 per cent to 26.3 per cent."


You got that right!

Closing the kits coast guard station certainly didn't help the Cons in BC.

I think it will still be many years before any party realistically threatens the federal Conservatives
– especially if the Liberals choose Justin Bieber, er, I mean Trudeau for their leader.

Exactly, no worries of the NDP ever being elected.
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and promoted by mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of fecal matter by the clean end.

People sure have short memories. There is a reason why Huffpoo uses EKOS as their go to polling company and fervently publishes their results. These are the same clowns that in the last election under-estimated, purely by accident of course, the Conservative vote percentage by a total of 5 percentage points, while dramatically over estimating both NDP and Liberal numbers. It appears nothing has changed with EKOS, and the gullible are still falling for their garbage polling. A monkey with a dart board is more accurate.

Exactly. The Liberals, particularly if they choose totally unqualified Trudeau (which I cannot see happening anyway as it would be a very stupid move on their part IMO), will be hard pressed to even make it to official opposition status next election. A few, particularly the young impressed only by name recognition and hair style, will continue to dream though. That party should just fold its tent forever considering what they put this country through after the first Trudeau and Chretien. To be electable they are going to have to get rid of their extreme left wing drivers, and move a long way to the political right to even get to political centre or beyond.

Wow ... another NDP thread being opened by the same (now four) provincial NDP political hacks. I think that now makes 14 that have been opened on Castanet in the last two weeks. What they have in common is that they are repetitious NDP hype, lacking facts.

CALGARY — It speaks volumes about the NDP leader that a Trudeau now boasts better odds of making gains in the Conservative stronghold of western Canada than Thomas Mulcair.

Two premiers — Brad Wall of Saskatchewan and Alberta’s Alison Redford — took the federal NDP leader to task again on Monday over the Keystone XL pipeline. As the western premiers have become the line’s lead champions, Mr. Mulcair has become their chief antagonist.

Mr. Mulcair went to Washington Wednesday to all but discourage the Americans from approving the contentious pipeline. He suggested the Conservative government was “playing people for fools” on Canada’s environmental record — prompting Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the U.S. House of Representatives, to note: “The Canadians don’t want the pipeline in their own country.”

Not only were Mr. Mulcair’s actions “decidedly unhelpful to the Canadian interest,” Mr. Wall said on Monday, they were also untrue.

Alberta has a carbon tax, an environmental research fund and supports carbon capture and storage research. Further, Mr. Wall noted, Canada has regulations on the real carbon dioxide emitters — coal-fired electricity plants — that are in many cases far tougher than what’s in place in the U.S.
