Around the same time that Sun News claims Jack Layton was getting a nude massage in Toronto, Stephen Harper was campaigning for the privatization of healthcare and for Albertan sovereignty. Which one do you think is more important to today’s election campaign, according to Sun? Go on, guess.
That hissing sound you hear is the air coming out of the NDP bandwagon’s tires. Which is a shame. For one glorious week it looked as if a party might be able to deny Conservatives a majority. At this point the NDP’s rise has almost certainly stopped. Whether it plummets and results in vote-splitting (guaranteeing a majority) or whether this flops like the Chretien Face Ad is anyone’s guess, though I suspect the former. Whether or not it should have been revealed is beside the point: awarding a majority government to a party that is currently in contempt of Parliament and in court on charges of election fraud is infinitely worse than shunning an Opposition leader, even if every seedy detail about the Layton massage story really is absolutely true.Tweet
