Go ahead and make Jack Layton...

..the next Prime Minister... I dare you...

-- NEW YORK -- Two leading makers of lighting products are showcasing LED bulbs that are bright enough to replace energy-guzzling 100-watt light bulbs set to disappear from stores in January.

Their demonstrations at the LightFair trade show in Philadelphia this week mean that brighter LED bulbs will likely go on sale next year, but after a government ban takes effect.

The new bulbs will also be expensive — about $50 each — so the development may not prevent consumers from hoarding traditional bulbs.

What does this have to do with Layton? The Conservatives announced they'd phase-out conventional bulbs years ago.

Sixth Estate: are you stupid, an asshole or just both?

The NDP has put forward private member bills calling for the banning of incandescent light bulbs and Paul Dewar among others campaigned on this issue in the last election.

So to connect the dots for you, if Jack and the NDP were running things the ban would be implemented.
