Meeting minutes and press releases in this file point to a crisis between the Ontario New Democratic Party (ONDP) and the Waffle Movement, with the former calling for the latter’s expulsion from the ONDP caucus. After the ONDP’s decision in 1972 to expel the Waffle from the party, members of the Waffle who still held NDP party membership were called upon to attend the London Conference organized by the Waffle Movement to submit deciding votes for the Waffle’s next steps, which included five options: one, dissolution; two, retain member status within the ONDP by adopting the Riverdale Resolution; three, cease to be a political party, but carry on political work for an Independent Socialist Canada outside of the ONDP; four, set up a new political party; and five, continue the Waffle’s functions unchanged and challenge the party expulsions at the next provincial NDP convention. File also includes notes on forming candidacies at the federal level around Waffle members who held NDP membership, which included Prepas. File also includes ‘The Waffle Manifesto,’ Prepas’ ONDP membership card for 1971, and a letter from Barry Weisleder addressed to all members of the North Metro Toronto NDP-Waffle Steering Committee regarding his objections to the arrangement of allowing only four panelists with near-uniform opinions on the Waffle’s options to speak in a conference where a decisive vote was to take place.
