Jack Layton was just on the CBC indicating the NDP would not support the Con Budget as it is currently written. Clearly the NDP wants to have some of its tweaks thrown in so when they do go to the polls they can point directly to the NDP’s contribution. The question is whether or not the NDP’s threat is credible. ie., will the NDP want to stay on record as opposing such a feel good budget? And crucially, will the Cons want to give the NDP the treats it needs to fight an election against the liberals and the greens?
