NDP and the Leap Manifesto

Amidst the enormous media coverage of the role of the Leap Manifesto  in the outcome of the NDP Convention in Edmonton in April, a few items which you may have missed:  “The Leap: Time for a Reality Check”   in Rabble.ca, in which Noami Klein defends the Leap document and counters another Rabble.ca article, “The federal NDP’s ‘Leap’ of faith advocates and Alberta’s right-wing opposition: Strange bedfellows?” (April 13) by David Climenhaga.   And after the dust has settled somewhat, Ed Broadbent and the Broadbent Institute issued “Canada’s Left is having a Moment”   which appeared in the Toronto Star (April 22).   The Leap website has compiled links to news coverage of the debate here . The CBC has also attempted an overview and compilation of links at  “The Leap Manifesto that is dividing the NDP” (April 17).
