Jack Layton: Different town; different message

In Ontario ridings, Jack Layton told voters to ignore third place candidates (who happened to be Liberal), warning that a vote for the third place is a vote for the Conservatives.

In Newfoundland and Labrador, where Jack is having a hard time finding candidates and where the ones nominated are way back in third place, Jack has a different tune.

Everyone can change their mind, but we are talking a matter of days here. Perhaps we need a Clarity Act to require the New Democrat boss to say the same thing everywhere he goes within the same election.

In the meantime, Deborah Coyne is on the ground in Toronto-Danforth knocking doors and taking names.

Ask Mulroney, Jack.

You that's one Coyne you don't want on your ass.
