A poll shows that 86 per cent of voters fear the 'secrecy and control' of the Harperites. The Liberals show they are disastrous for social justice. The NDP can play to their strengths on these issues.
The NDP leader outlined four key points he wanted from the Conservatives in March’s budget. Instead, Layton was accused of backing down on fighting against corporate tax cuts, which wasn't true.
The Globe cheekily headlined on Saturday that Mr. Layton had taken Liberal-Tory corporate tax cuts “off the table.” Was there more to the story?
A federal budget is being finalized. Another election window is upon us. What's going to happen?
Conservatives believe the economy will right itself if governments get out of the way. But tax cuts mean public needs go unmet, inequality increases, and the capacity to create jobs is weakened.
Harper's greatest fear is the other parties working together.
The Liberals need the Conservatives to lose 33 seats and themselves gain 33 seats just to draw even with the Harper government -- it's not going to happen, so consider other options.
Canadians will pay taxes if told why they are needed.
Jack Layton is by far the most popular federal leader -- but his party is not trusted. He must know Canadians hunger for honest engagement about what is possible and what the price of this would be.
An enormous amount of political space has been created for Canadians to discover leaders and priorities they can support among Canada's mainstream national political parties.
