This is the story of a place called Mouseland.
Mouseland was a place where all the little mice lived and played.
But in 2021 Mouseland wasn't the happy place it was envisioned to be.
The father of the modern day NDP Tommy Douglas would retell the story of Mouseland when campaigning. Douglas would let people know that the CCF/NDP was a different party to the Liberals, and the Conservatives.
Fast forward to 2021, and the NDP have a problem on their hand. There is a growing concern that the mice that were there to support the other mice are no longer mice.
Des Bissonnette is the former NDP Federal Candidate in Lakeland (Alberta), and a NDP party organizer. In todays episode Des talks about becoming disillusioned with the NDP, and the party's bleeding of progressive voters to other parties.
Bissonnette lays out that there is trouble in Mouseland and its time to get back to electing mice like Tommy Douglas once envisioned.
