Organizers remain optimistic and point to generational shift in their favour  

The first morning of the NDP’s federal convention in Ottawa featured a showdown pitting high profile members of the party’s caucus against a significant part of its grassroots base. At stake was whether a resolution on Palestine would make it on to the weekend’s formal policy agenda. After a tense session and a close vote, the resolution won’t see the light of day at this convention. The organizers behind this latest push for the NDP to take a stronger stance on Palestine are disappointed but undaunted, telling Ricochet that they’re hopeful for change and won’t give up the fight.
