Did you know that the post-war CCF once wrote admiringly about the Red Army? That it saw Canada's wartime economic planning as a great argument for the superiority of central planning and public investment? That they authored pieces like "Political Action for the 99%" in 1943? Or that NDP leader David Lewis used to publicly name-and-shame Canadian corporations that avoided taxes while soaking up publicly-funded subsidies?
Dr. Roberta Lexier from Mount Royal University joins Team Advantage to discuss David Lewis and the CCF-NDP's policies in the post-war period, and helps us think through how these ideas might be relevant today.
