Once upon a time the NDP, in their constitution preambe stated:
"The production and distribution of goods and services shall be directed to meeting the social and individual needs of people within a sustainable environment and economey, AND NOT TO THE MAKING OF PROFIT; To modify and control the operations of the monopolistic productive and distributive organizations through economic and socil planning, and, where necessary, the extention of social ownership."
They have abandoned this preamble to their constitution; under Jack Layton it has become a populist mini-liberal party. I muist confess, Jack has left me no political home because he has basicly killed the "socialist" aspect of the NDP. Why would it surprize you that he haS abandon concern about carbon and the environment to chase votes. Now, like all others he pays cheap lip service to issues. These days it seemes politics are never about US, its always ABOUT THEM.
We need to get back to that place where WE sent MPs to Ottawa to speak for us, now Ottawa tells our MPs WHAT they MUST DO FOR THE PARTY. It has nothing to do with representing ridings anymore.
Another one ready to let old folks freeze in the dark to satisfy their fantaxy.

Expectations right up there with trying to post anything hereabouts in under one hour's wait....
Surely, JAT, you cannot forget the last act of the Senate before this election was called? Where is your ice-floe drifting?
Closed for length.
