Let's Make a Deal?
LAYTON MEETS WITH PM IN ADVANCE OF FALL SESSION
Aug 25, 2009
OTTAWA – New Democrat Leader Jack Layton will meet with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Langevin Block to discuss the fall session of Parliament.
Layton plans to speak to reporters immediately following the meeting.
There's a lot of speculation there could be a Conservative-NDP
coalition deal in the works. Jeff has a good run-down on why this might make sense. I suggested as much back in June too.
On the flip side, maybe our politicians are actually taking the minority government reality seriously and are, you know, talking to each other. As they should.
UPDATE: Sounds like it was just a friendly chat. Nothing wrong with that - that's probably something the party leaders should do more often.
