Canada has 3 parties and one leader, Jack Layton was popular, believed to be a 'for the people' type of leader. He passed away but his memory lives on and hopefully, his beliefs where our nation should be going but the other parties are trying to do a lot of 'smearing'
I'd have to say that Mr. Layton was pushing for a leadership that cared about it's people first and definitely not for $$ gains with corporations. It goes with my own beliefs, I care about my neighbor and will help the deserving and even those who don't deserve it, first before helping a business
I'd think that such a leader would've ensured a more fair fiscal balance for the nation between the peoples and business. Business is needed for extra $$ for the nation, yes, but not at expense of services for the people at home.
