On the Show:

Laura Payton, Kathleen Monk, Jamie Nicholls, Rosane Doré Lefebvre, Alexandre Boulerice, Desmond Cole, Kelly Carmichael, David Akin, Heather Scoffield

Kathleen Monk, Jamie Nicholls and Rosane Doré Lefebvre talk about what went wrong for the NDP in the last federal election, who's to blame and what Mulcair will need to do next week at the NDP convention to hold on to leadership of the party.

NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice says pointing fingers and laying blame for the election losses last year isn't going to help the NDP rebuild, but he says the director of communications and the head of the campaign, along with the war room and Thomas Mulcair himself didn't listen enough to those in the party during the election.

Toronto journalist and activist Desmond Cole talks about the article he wrote last summer about getting carded and stopped by police for being black which put him in the spotlight, racism and the Black Lives Matter movement, feminism and interviewing Gloria Steinem at the Progress Summit.

Kelly Carmichael, executive director of Fair Vote Canada gives her arguments for why Canada needs electoral reform away from First Past the Post and to Proportional Representation.

David Akin and Heather Scoffield give the look ahead to next week's NDP convention and the leadership vote that will take place.
