Good observation.

The problem is that some of these shifts risk alienating the activist base of the party, many of whom are skeptical of globalization, among other things. I know that I probably would be less enthusiastic about voting for a party that was widely considered "economically responsible." I'd become suspicious of it.

Whereas it would make me very happy.

But then, I am most certainly not the traditional NDP core supporter.

Canadians were promised heaven on earth if they'd only accept zero-inflation, the FTA, NAFTA, and tax cuts and deregulation. We got all those things. The pay-off has been less than spectacular. But some people still want to talk about credibility.

I'd say it's still an open contest.
