Chris Selley, National Post posits in today's newspaper that now may be the time for New Democratic Party leader Jack "Call Me Jack" Layton to make a move back to his hometown of Tronna and run the show.
Mr. Selley rightfully points out that there is no way in hell that Mr. Layton will ever be Prime Minister of our great land and that, although his work as the leader of the Dips has been impressive, "Took over party that won 13 seats and 8.5% of the popular vote in the 2000 election, built it to 37 seats and more than 18% in 2008. Able to extract progressive concessions from evil non-progressive governments at their most desperate moments. Nearly landed a Cabinet post in 2008 in a coalition government." they have hit a ceiling/wall/whatever.
Mr. Selley also writes that he thinks that Mr. Layton would be a disaster as mayor of the Big Smoke [he prefers John Tory] but the scribe believes that Mr. Layton has a really good shot at it and that the appeal of actually running something must have some sort of cache.
