Questions for discussion:
• Consult your text: why has labour traditionally supported the NDP?
• What signs of a cooling in that relationship does this article point to?
• What are the consequences for the NDP if labour withdraws its support?
• What is Bill C-4?
• Why might labour be grateful to see it pass?
