Jack Layton at Brock

Jack Layton gave a talk to students and staff at Brock today. He talked about the NDP’s post-secondary education act, and about the need to help working families get by. Did you know that 3/4 kids in the Niagara region leave the region to find work? He also pointed out that he once carried around a laptop and gave presentations on climate change, if only he’d brought a long a camera.

The NDP has lots of good ideas (National child car, housing issues, environmental policies, etc.) and a millstone of organized labour, but the issue that seems to be getting Mr. Layton the most traction is his stand against ATM fees.

As an interesting side note: I was able to pick out most of the CAW members in the room from their choice of leather jackets and hair styles (none pictured).
