The rise and fall of Tom Mulcair

The party is in no danger of disappearing but it will be hard pressed in the next election to argue credibly, as it could at the beginning of the last campaign, that it has any chance of forming the government.

With Tom Mulcair a lame duck interim leader and low polling numbers, the federal NDP is in danger of becoming even more marginalized. It may revisit the lost 1990s when, in three consecutive elections, it garnered between seven and 11 per cent of the vote. The Hill Times photograph by Laura Ryckewaert
