Unlike Stephen Harper, Jack Layton doesn’t wear a suit jacket

  1. I don't get the Iggy-Harper high five at the end. I thought neither the Liberals and the NDP were both not interested in further tax cuts for big corporations. Shouldn't it be a Iggy-Jack high five?

    • It's an NDP commercial….don't expect it to make sense.

    • The series of corporate tax cuts was originally a Liberal initiative. They were all
      for it until they weren't … and will be again. They don't call Scott Bay St. Brison for nuttin' …

      • We had a surplus back then.

  4. Well I can see why Electrolux made the move to Tennesee – NON-union. They relocated from Iowa to Tennesee as well. Plus over a $100 million from the state and county for the new plant. I'll never understand how the NDP mind works – we are going to force companies to operate in Canada, and force them to pay high wages and they say oky doky. It's about keeping the jobs, Jack!!

    "He expressed gratitude to local and state governments for providing “a strong financial support package” (reportedly $20 million from both Memphis and Shelby County for infrastructure improvements, and another $92 million from the state of Tennessee)."

    • Gee massive subsidies to corporations….and low wages to the workers…..hmmm, that makes sense.

      For somebody.

      • Some of the posters comments on the article were thankful Electrolux was setting up shop there instead of going to China – at least it was a job. They are now the biggest manufacturer of cooking appliances in N.A.

        On a lighter note and not meant to be mean spirited, another poster said this:

        "I see it as restitution for Canada's role in foisting Celine Dion upon us"

        • Americans are hard up against it right now…so they'll grab the jobs, but they don't like being grateful for crumbs.

          They are never going to forgive us for Celine Dion. LOL

          • Nor should they.

          • We're doing it again!

            Celine Dion is a marvelous singer. Very successful, too. Yes, she was ridiculously overplayed there for awhile and I suppose she didn't do enough to prevent that (like nothing). But let us not diss one of our own simply because of success.

            Goes for Nickelback, too.

          • Trust me, it's not simply because of their success.. either of them.

          • She was a better signer when she wasn't popular.

    • And that's how the poorest part of the US gets to stay that way.

      • They're always likely to stay that way.

      • The way I hope it pans out, they make top quality appliances that consumers prefer instead of the cr@p that comes out of China presently. Demand goes up, prices go up, wages go up.

        • Demand goes up, prices go up, dividends go up.

          Wages? Why bother?

          • Can't pay for the appliances then.

          • Global companies don't care what their local workers can or can't afford. I mean, I agree with you, and I think Henry Ford had the right idea, but the modern investor doesn't, by and large, agree.

            Proof can be seen in that every time a company fires workers or manages to reduce their wages, their stock value increases.

          • Yup….Electrolux is a Swedish company

          • They wouldn't be poor if they had an education.

        • I think this economic theory has been disproven enough times with actual examples that you can put it away now. Even though it sounds nice, and I wish it were true. I think the problem is that it doesn't take greed into account, which I think a lot of economic theories ignore. And there is always greed.

  7. Looks like the NDP is going after the stupid vote.

    • Aha! So that explains why their ads constantly attack the CPC. Hoping to grab some of them, I guess. :)
