Federal and Provincial Parties

I think it is a huge mistake for a party to fully and formally linked provincially and federally. Check out the problems the NDP are having as noted in Mike Smyth's column.

The interests of a federal party and provincial party are never going to be the same. The provincial wing of any party is never going to agree to the surrender of more provincial powers to the blackhole of Ottawa and federal parties seem incapable of scaling back the size of waste and overlap federally.
