Saskatchewan Young New Democrats Talk Socialism... But No One's Listening

Sam Roberts' song "The Canadian Dream" plays in the background while a parade of young New Democrats in Saskatchewan explain their vision for the province. Although youth wings of social democratic parties are almost always to the left of the party it seems as though there is an ocean of difference between the neo-liberal record of the Saskatchewan NDP government and the progressive socialist vision of these young New Democrats.

Here are the lyrics to " The Canadian Dream"... Let's hope Lorne Calvert goes out and buys the CD.

The Canadian Dream

Went out on the street today
The Canadian Dream was as far away as it’s ever been
As it’s ever been here to stay
S.O.C.I.A.L.I.S.M. is the only way
Frozen land, frozen minds
Frozen hands and frozen time
‘Cause everything moves real slow when it’s forty below
