What if Bernie Sanders Won Texas?

What if Bernie Sanders won in Texas? That’s essentially what just happened in Canada’s Texas, the conservative province of Alberta. The winners? The most left-wing party in Canada, the New Democratic Party.

How did the NDP achieve this? With these promises:

  • A $15/hr. minimum wage
  • A ban on corporate donations for elections
  • An increase of the corporate tax rate from ten to twelve percent
  • A review of the royalties that oil, gas, and coal companies┬ápay to government
  • A phase out of coal power.

Democrats in America, take note. The New Democratic Party might just serve as a North Star.
