Segue of the Day


 

Jack Layton’s second and third questions today.

Hon. Jack Layton (Toronto—Danforth, NDP): Mr. Speaker, will they stop already. The Prime Minister and defence minister cannot spin their way out of this one. The Chief of Defence Staff just contradicted everything that they have been saying in this House time and time again. The minister claimed there was no proof of abuse. He was wrong, and he should take responsibility and resign, and if not, the Prime Minister should demand it today.

Hon. Jack Layton (Toronto—Danforth, NDP): Mr. Speaker, the Prime Minister is clearly skating on this one. Let me talk about what our Canadian winter Olympic athletes are saying about climate change … Mr. Speaker, the fact is that the pressure is increasing on the government to take action on climate change. It is global. Here is what our own athletes in the winter Olympics have to say: Many of us are already seeing the impact of climate change on our beloved winter sport. We can’t sit on the sidelines when solutions exist.” Does the government even realize that our winter sports are at risk because of climate change?

  1. Oops, for some reason i've repeated myself accidentally. But at least i've doubled the score for Jack! Way to go comrade!

  2. Solid questioning from the mustache. But what? No comments from the CON-bot nation in defence of their so-called leader? Oh right, they've been called to arms to shout down and punk MacLeans latest poll… Ignoring that ice shelf shrinkage and fishery disappearance is a lot more fun that other shrinkages they've had to deal with of late.

  3. Here's a fourth substantively empty comment to go with your other three.

    That way it won't quite look as if you're talking to yourself like Taliban Jack does.

  4. Here is what our own athletes in the winter Olympics have to say: Many of us are already seeing the impact of climate change on our beloved winter sport

    There is so much idiocy coming from the climate change debate.

    I just read an article in Maclean's saying that Whistler just had the largest monthly snowfall in recorded history. Layton is completely out of his mind.
