can we keep my thread since it was posted first and doesn't sound like a livejournal blog?
I just remember Jack as the garbage councilor from Toronto who had all that garbage trucked to Michigan....at what cost????
Yeah ... all because Mikey's Mine got scrubbed from the script. Say, isn't that when Harris was going to axe Ontario Northland in one of his temper tantrums?
He outdid himself, however, in October of 2000 when he convinced his NDP pals on council to grandstand for eight long days at council in an attempt to derail the $1-billion contract to ship Toronto’s garbage to the abandoned Adams Mine site near Kirkland Lake.
The deal eventually fell through and we can thank Layton for spearheading the back-up plan — that is, to send Toronto’s trash using up to 200 trucks daily along Hwy. 401 to a Michigan landfill site, a far more costly and environmentally unfriendly deal which ended just last year.
I tought someone else would remember that one....we refused to provide the landfill site in my neck of the woods....and Kirkland Lake accepted.
Layton goes up in the polls and the stock market drops.....hmmm......coincidense?????
It started coming up from where it was in mid-April, roughly when Layton's support started growing. It had gone down after the election was called. Coincidence? Well yes actually, that's the definition of coincidence. Cause? Unknown.
I wouldn't count him out, and I don't think it's stupid or affects his credibility at all.
It's optimism, and that's a good thing.
he's always had the gift of the gab, he's a good speaker, and a political veteran now.
it's obvious the people are sick to death of the same ole same ole, and maybe for once
the people will make a difference in this election, and not be stuck in a rut as they have
been for years.
lets shake up that parliament, big time, and force those lieing 'bas**rds' in the
other two parties, that we are fed up with their antics.
He's been riding a roller coaster for several days because of his personality and his ability to know what people want to hear and having the sense to say it. Now he is saying he can beat Stephen Harper. Once a guy starts telling blatant lies that even Little Red Riding wouldn't believe, his credibility is out the window. Stupid bastard!
how about you explain how taking a violent left turn out of the ball court could possibly be good for working people, unless you happen to be a government employee? In which case you wouldn't really be working anyway.
Me thinks not..... maybe you should look at Harper and the lies he's been spewing.
This could work as a disadvantage too.
It has worked that way against the conservatives when they crept toward majority territory where the swing vote got nervous and shifted left.
If it looked as though Layton might actually win that could be enough worry for the undecided and cause a slide to the right.
