NDP-New Democrate Party. In truth the NDP have actually done very little for Canada. They claim that the NDP startedhealth care. This is not true, Tommy Douglas tried to start it in Saskatchewan but Tommy Douglas was part of the CCF(later taken over by the unions and changed its name to NDP). The NDP have never held power in the federal goverment and only have ever held any real power in Saskatchewan
NDP are usaully associated with studentsprofs and people on th left.
