This weekend in Quebec City, the NDP is meeting to discuss their... um... special view of the world. I'm not sure, but Jack Layton is likely to face a confidence vote on his leadership.

What kind of numbers do you think he'll get?

Yeah, I imagine he'll do fine. Federal NDP support is steady, Jack ain't personally responsible for the lack of political filtering from the riding associations, he's done well to distance himself from the loonier suggestions.

And there isn't exactly anyone nipping at his heels within the party either. :)

Jack has lead the NDP to get more seats and have more power than they have had in a very long time. They would be making a huge mistake if they were to do anything but support him near 100%. Having said that, I still think the NDP is way way WAY too left for me to vote for them as anything but a joke.

Jack! has done a good job of moderating the NDP a great deal. I would argue that the NDP of 2006 aren't about as left or maybe even slightly to the right of the Trudeau Liberals of the 70's

Yeah, if people flip over this NDP, I can't imagine what they'd do in a country like France, Italy, India, Japan or elsewhere where the equivalent for the NDP (as in, a secondary left-of-centre party) is the Communist Party or equivalent.

I guess that's the paradigm you get when you're on a continent founded by Puritans.

He'll do fine...
I don't see them ousting a popular leader, even if he won't advocate crucifying george bush and toppling "the american empire"

For the record, he got 92%.

I'd sure like to talk to that other 8%... "Jack's too right-wing for us..."

I love Jack Layton, and so do most of the younger voters. Too bad he wasn't the leader of the Liberal party, he'd make a terrific Prime Minister.

now, now... DrGreenthumb is probably serious. But he/she should justify their statement.

Why do you love Jack Layton? Why would he make a terrific Prime Minister?
