At one time, the NDP was united both federally and provincially across the country.
One membership card and identical policy structures.
This is not the case anymore. Why? Saskatchewan and Manitoba both had provincial elections in April. Federal NDP leader, Thomas Mulcair, was a no show in both provinces to add his support to the provincial NDP. Former NDP Manitoba premier Greg Selinger and B.C. NDP leader John Horgan were a no-show at the NDP federal convention in Edmonton. This would not have happened if the NDP were not in turmoil.
