A great piece in Reuters on the NDP and Jack today!

By Allan Dowd

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Canada's minority Conservative government must start overhauling its climate change policy before there is a vote on its budget, the head of the left-of-center New Democratic Party, which may hold the balance of power in Parliament, said on Wednesday...

But Layton said he wants a vote in the House of Commons on legislation to cut automobile and industrial emissions before the budget comes to a vote.

"We want to see it come back before the end of February so it can be voted on without the cloud of election speculation and budgets and so on," Layton told reporters in Vancouver, where the NDP is holding a caucus meeting.


Jack and the NDP again standing up and doing what is correct and good!

Yes, someone has to try and make good with the Big Red Machine's political promises on Kyoto for several years running. Has Jack snatched a bouncing ball from the re-Liberals ?.
