Layton launches 2nd half of the campaign

Jack Layton launched the second half of the campaign today in Ottawa. You can read his speech here. Quote: "In three weeks’ time, people are going to vote to change politics. The kind of change Canadians want and need. Together, we’re going to change politics. Change it for good." It's a really strong speech, & I'd encourage everyone to give it a read. If you have questions or comments on his speech, follow up to this post & we'll discuss. In other election news, CTV.ca has a non-NDP related article that many Kingstonians may find interesting: Prisoners eligible to vote in election. It's only the second time that federal prisoners have been allowed to vote. People who're incarcerated in Kingston won't necessarily be voting in Kingston: "They may vote in the riding where they lived before going to prison, in the riding where a relative lives or where they were convicted." Inmates will vote by special ballot on Jan. 13th.

What's your strategy to pursue the Incarcerated-Canadian Demographic?

Hey Jacob,

I don't think the NDP has one...

My next post is going to be about incarceration & the crime rate, though -- watch this space!
