Layton has to come back to ground. His 50%+1 is already freakng out many and his facetiously comparing it to Harper's 40% election win is disingenuous to say the least. You cannot compare breaking up a country to the winning od an electoral mandate. The Clarity Act is fair, and the Supreme Court ruling is clear...clear question with aclear majiority begins negotiiations. The so call Sherbrooke Declaration is no more than a tactic to get support from the "soft" nationalists. It worked because the Bloc was stuck and had run its course. They voted with the NDP this time, but in four years the NDP will be judged by its overall performance, not just "cozying up ' to Quebec. The rest of Canada will punish Layton and his NDP in the same way they punished the Liberals and the "soft nationalsits" will do the same. The NDP has to emphasise its social democratic values, protection of workers rigts, medicare, child care etc. and tie it to climate change and a return to Canada as a Peacekeeper. Enough of wars'
Jack's Pack has to be weaned very quickly or it will be a sorry mess.
