...to appease the Separatistes... what wouldn't Jack Layton promise the rest of us?
-- OTTAWA -- The NDP platform, which is 26 pages long, contains 19 pictures of Jack Layton and 12 pages of text. Even so, those 12 pages list 146 bullets’ worth of policy, with another 59 sub-bullets, for a grand total of 205 policy promises.This could be interesting.
The platform’s title is Giving Your Family a Break: Practical First Steps. If there are 205 “first steps,” how many second, third and fourth steps will there be?
