The New Democrats are holding their caucus for three days in Edmonton. This is an opportunity for the left-wing federal party to put forward a new local candidate for a parliamentary seat and to openly oppose the liberals and conservatives.

< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">We have seen tremendous support for the provincial New Democratic Party in the past. And we also see that there are people who are not satisfied with the Liberals who have been in power for nine years, argued Jagmeet Singh during a press conference in downtown Edmonton for the opening of his party's rally.

The leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada (NDP) did not spare the Liberals. For more than half an hour, Jagmeet Singh kept repeating that the Liberal Party had had its day and presented the NDP as a replacement option.

Justin Trudeau says he wants to grow the middle class, but he's had nine years to do it and things haven't worked out only get worse, chanted the leader.

The move of the New Democratic caucus also comes in a context where the provincial NDP will soon change its face. Its boss since 2014, Rachel Notley, announced on January 16 that she wanted to leave her position.

For Frédéric Boily, the choice of Alberta for these meetings is not insignificant.

What may be a little more difficult for the New Democrats is the whole carbon tax issue, the pipeline issue that has divided the New Democratic family in the past. I will not be surprised if the federal New Democrats meet in Alberta to send a message to the provincial New Democrats that we must form a united family, he emphasizes.

The NDP currently has 25 parliamentary seats. The next federal election is scheduled for October 20, 2025.
