What must the NDP do right now?

[This is my submission to contest question: What must the NDP do right now? - In 100 words or less.]

The seven remaining candidates in the New Democratic Party leadership race are all proposing varying degrees of moderation. Chief among those candidates are Nathan Cullen and Thomas Mulcair. It would be in the best interest of New Democratic partisans to embrace such ideals. It is time for New Democrats to ask themselves if they wish to remain the ‘conscience of the House’ or if they wish to become a party of government. Only by stealing the centre-left vote from the Liberal Party can the NDP truly achieve this goal. The only question that remains is; “Will they or won’t they?”
