"...yet there is method in't."
The New Democrats and Bloc Quebecois held talks to form a coalition party well before the opposition's uproar over the government's fiscal update, CTV News has learned.Well... isn't that special... looks like Taliban Jack has been plotting with the Separatistes for some time now...
NDP Leader Jack Layton was in talks with Bloc Leader Gilles Duceppe for a "considerable period of time," reported CTV's Ottawa Bureau Chief Robert Fife on Sunday.
According to the audio tape, Layton appears to take credit for the possibility of a coalition.So much for looking out for the interests of Canadians.
"Let's just say we have strategies. This whole thing would not have happened if the moves hadn't been made with the Bloc a long time ago and locked them in early," Layton says.
"Because, you couldn't put three people together in one or three hours. The first part was done a long time ago."
FROM THE COMMENTS:
"If people thought too much of their money was going to Quebec before..."And...
"I'd like to know how Layton is ever going to be able to live down the fact that he conspired to bring down the elected gov't (of all 6 weeks or so) BEFORE it had any chance to introduce substantive legislation proposals."**********
