Cheri DiNovo on How to Fix the NDP
MPP Cheri DiNovo on why she couldn't sit back and watch the NDP make any more mistakes.
June 14, 2016

Toronto MPP Cheri DiNovo says the NDP needs to return to its roots: unabashedly socialist and anti-capitalist, with an eye towards social justice and the environment. So she launched an unofficial leadership campaign, choosing not to pay the $30,000 fee required to enter the race.

DiNovo talks to Vicky and Supriya about money in politics, the missteps of the NDP and why Veuve Clicquot and high fashion aren’t at odds with socialism.
