What the NDP should do....

By David McGrane on Sep 22, 2008

 First of all, why are the Liberals putting out  a platform ahead of the NDP? When Layton puts out a platform in the future it will look he is the official opposition leader and he will continue to look stronger compared to Dion.

Second, the NDP should put out a traditional platform of what it would do as majority government. However, it should also put out a list of demands of what it would take for it to support a minority Conservative government. The NDP must make itself seems like the best party to 'hold Harper's feet to the fire' in oppositon.  This will get it the most voters among the Canadians who don't want to see a Harper majority but don't know which opposition party to vote for.
