The NDP may not have existed during the Second World War, but that didn't stop Prime Minister Stephen Harper from accusing the party of failing to support the fight against Hitler.

During question period in the House of Commons, Harper was pushed by NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair to give a clear answer on whether Canadian troops will remain in Afghanistan beyond 2014.

Harper responded: "I have made myself very clear. Unlike the NDP, we are not going to ideologically have a position regardless of circumstances. The leader of the NDP, in 1939, did not even want to support war against Hitler."

There's just one problem: the NDP was formed in 1961.
