Redaction Politics Podcast Ep. 11: The NDP’s fall from official opposition to electoral disaster

AFTER a dramatic rise in 2011, Canada’s centre-left New Democratic Party (NDP) are a shadow of the force they once were.

Following the death of charismatic leader Jack Layton and financial ruin, the party which once offered a strong voice for the left are miles away from challenging the Liberals in government.

Our North America correspondent Scott Costen joined host Declan Carey to look into the rise and fall of the NDP, and whether the left can ever reach the heights of 2011 again.

The second episode of a three-part series on the decline of the left, the team are finishing the series next week by putting the spotlight on the United States.
