CCF national president David Lewis — who succeeded Coldwell as president in , when the national chairman and national president positions were merged — and the rest of the new party's organizers opposed Argue's manoeuvres and wanted Douglas to be the new party's first leader.
As far back as , Coldwell wanted Douglas to succeed him in leading the National CCF at that time, it was obvious that Coldwell would be assuming the national leadership in the near future. Douglas resigned from provincial politics and sought election to the House of Commons in the riding of Regina City in , but was defeated by Ken More. He was later elected in a by-election in the riding of Burnaby—Coquitlam , British Columbia.
Re-elected as MP for that riding in the and elections , Douglas lost the redistricted seat of Burnaby—Seymour in the federal election. He won a seat again in a by-election in the riding of Nanaimo—Cowichan—The Islands , following the death of Colin Cameron in , and represented it until his retirement from electoral politics in While the NDP did better in elections than its CCF predecessor, the party did not experience the breakthrough it had hoped for.

During the Federal Election, Douglas described homosexuality as a treatable illness by saying "its a mental illness [and] a psychiatric condition".

During a second vote on 19 October, sixteen of the twenty members of the NDP parliamentary caucus voted against the implementation of the War Measures Act in the House of Commons and four voted with the Liberal government.
They took much grief for being the only parliamentarians to vote against it,  dropping to an approval rating of seven per cent in public opinion polls. But, there is no information that there was unintended, or apprehended, or planned insurrection, which alone, would justify invoking the War Measures Act. About five years later, many of the MPs who voted to implement it regretted doing so, and belatedly honoured Douglas and Lewis for their stand against it. I don't brood about it.

Particularly, the movie's portrayal of James Gardiner , premier of Saskatchewan from the late s to mids, was objected to by political historians and the Gardiner family itself.

Douglas was mentioned in the Michael Moore documentary Sicko , which compared the health care system in the United States with that of Canada and other countries.
He was also known for his retelling of the fable of " Mouseland ", which likens the majority of voters to mice, and how they either elect black or white cats as their politicians, but never their own mice: meaning that workers and their general interests were not being served by electing wealthy politicians from the Liberal or Conservative parties black and white cats , and that only a party from their class mice , originally the CCF, later the NDP, could serve their interests mice.
