You Don't Know Jack

Ugg. Jack Layton came out today and said he’d overturn the Clarity Bill. Honestly, as a left leaning Liberal, I was all set to vote for Layton on the 28th but now…I dunno. I just can’t see any reason for this. Broadbent got in trouble in ’88 for cozying up to separatists and the NDP has never been a factor in Quebec. And this is not the election for them to make a breakthrough in Quebec – the Bloc vote is solid right now according to the latest poll and soft nationalists will vote Bloc, not NDP.

Terrible move by Layton. I’m really going to have to re-think my vote now.


  • Uhh, does this mean that you might, just might, follow the majority of Canadians on election day and vote Conservative?

    Or do we have to follow your pain and anguish as you pursue the ideals and platforms (but not the viable prospects) of the Greens, Christian Heritage Party, Marxist-Leninist Party, Libertarian Party, Canadian Action Party, Communist Party, etc? (joke, really)

    However, the shorter and less painful path may be for you to realize that Jack wants airtime, craves publicity, and knows the NDP has no chance of forming a government ... therefore can say anything he likes. If you accept that proposition, you can take anything that Jack can ladle out!

    See, much simpler that way. Just treat Jack as a popup ad in your browser.

    Regards, Erik
