The NDP want to be popular.

Taxes are not popular.

That's the full extent of the thinking that goes into their position.

The general public don't see a problem with gridlock. They are still driving their cars everywhere and don't want to pay more to do so than they do today. Apart from the maybe 5-10% of us that are paying attention, no one understands - or even cares - that this is not sustainable.

Politically, doing what is "right" is also unpopular. Populist politics is all the rage these days, on both the left and the right.
