Jack Layton

NDP broke fundraising rules, returns money

in Daily Indygestion/Email Indygestion/Journalism by

The federal NDP has acknowledged it broke the rules when it launched a Jack Layton memorial fundraising campaign after their leader passed away in August. The NDP campaigned on behalf of the Broadbent Institute, a left-leaning think thank; the Canada Elections Act strictly prohibits political parties from soliciting donations on behalf of any entity other than the party itself, one of its candidates, a leadership contestant or a district association. The party admitted it broke the rules, and has returned the money to all contributors. The commissioner of elections, William Corbett, said that in letting the party off so easily, he took into account that it acknowledged and accepted responsibility for its breaches, co-operated with his office and took corrective action within days of starting the campaign.

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

Other names include former Manitoba premier Gary Doer, former Nova Scotia NDP leader and newly elected MP Robert Chisholm, and veteran MPs Libby Davies and Paul Dewar.

Layton to get state funeral

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

NDP leader Jack Layton, who passed away yesterday morning after a battle with cancer, will be honoured with a state funeral on Saturday in Toronto. State funerals are only automatic in cases of current and former governors general, current and former prime ministers, and sitting members of cabinet; Prime Minister Stephen Harper thought it appropriate to offer a state funeral for Layton, an offer which Layton’s family accepted. The government protocol office is working with the NDP and Layton’s family on details. The last state funeral was on July 3, 2009, for former governor general Roméo LeBlanc. It was held in Memramcook, N.B. Source: CBC

Coalition speculation heating up

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

In national news — with an election campaign likely to begin on Saturday and the Conservatives enjoying a healthy lead in the polls, talks inevitably surface once again about the possibility of the formation of a coalition government. This idea will emerge in full force near the last days of an election only if the combined support of the Liberals and NDP is greater than that of the Conservatives. Harper will use the idea as ammunition against other parties as he did successfully in 2008, despite the fact other countries like Germany, Australia, and the UK have them and are functioning. For their part, Jack Layton of the NDP is not skittish about publicly discussing a coalition, but Michael Ignatieff of the Liberals sidesteps the question, insisting he is intent on forming a Liberal government. However, it is hard to ignore his mantra in 2008 — ‘a coalition if necessary,…

NDP to decide fate of 40th parliament

in Daily Indygestion/Journalism by

It seems that NDP leader Jack Layton has a big decision to make. In a last-minute effort to avoid an election, the Harper government has sprinkled its budget today with two and a half of the four measures the NDP demanded in return for its support for the 2011 budget. Reportedly, the Conservatives will re-introduce the home energy retrofit program; create an initiative to attract doctors and nurses to remote and rural areas; and provide more support for low-income seniors. But it appears they will not be making any changes to the Canada Pension Plan and will not be altering how sales tax is applied to home heating bills, meaning the Harper government meets just some of the NDP criteria. This puts Mr. Layton in a pickle, as the government needs the support of just one party to pass its budget – and that will not be the Liberals or…
