Hey BC, word to the wise, the NDP have basically destroyed N.S since they came to power 4 years ago, just as they did the other provinces. They have broken every promise, raised every tax and user fee over and over, slashed health care and education, flip floped on everything they screamed about for years in opposition. ( don't even bother with the "balanced budget comments, nobody believes it but them) Our gas, power, electricity and tax rates are among the highest in North America now because of them. Do yourself a favour and RUN! The only party with secret hidden agendas is the NDP, pray they never get the keys to Ottawa, and hope they don't get the keys to BC.

The NDP was never a socialist party. In fact any pretense of socialism was dropped in the Winnipeg Decleration of Principles (sic.) by the CCF in 1956 in reaction to the McCarthyist scare. Eventhough the Party is drifting to the right, as a social democratic party, it remains starkly different from the liberal democratic parties, both of which prefer to cede the responsibilities of democraticly elected governments to oligarchical capitalists to chart the social and economic course for society. At least the NDP understands that elected governments should be responsible to the people and, as a result, can bring postive changes to improve the quality of life for the general population. One only has to compare American standards of living compared to Norway, Sweden, and Denmark. If Canada falls in the middle it's only beacuse of the political pressure of the presence of the NDP and the post-war CCF.
