This history of Vancouver's Coalition of Progressive Electors (COPE) examines the processes and pitfalls of coalition building at the urban level. The role of politics in the era of globalization is a key issue discussed, with emphasis on how electoral politics and processes must adhere to democratic values. COPE is examined as a microcosm illustrating two central tensions in leftist politics: the problem of building coalitions between diverse social organizations and the role of electoral politics in broader leftist projects. COPE's involvement in recent urban elections in Vancouver shed light on the success of leftist agendas.
