Not content with ruining his own campaign... 
(en francais)

Paul Martin sees the need to tell Jack Layton how to run his. Of course the message is, Jack should be attacking Conservatives because the Liberals are in danger of losing power. The arrogance and entitlement never end.
Layton Has Turned his Back on Kyoto
January 19, 2006

NDP Leader Jack Layton has missed another opportunity to tell the truth about what a Conservative government would mean for Canada’s Kyoto commitments.

The Prime Minister challenged Mr. Layton, saying he has “taken a pass” when it comes to the fight against the party that opposes Kyoto and Canada’s commitment to climate change.

Mr. Layton responded, “Well, that is just not true.” And then he went back to criticizing the Liberals.

Finally, he added, “I committed our party to relentlessly fight any attempt to renege on our responsibilities on climate change in the next Parliament.”

THE FACTS

Mr. Layton knows full well that there would be nothing the NDP could do if a Conservative government decided to withdraw Canada from the Kyoto Accord. The decisions would not require legislation, and would likely never be put before Parliament.

Mr. Layton also knows Canada has been entrusted for the next year with the chairmanship of the UN chair on improving and implementing Kyoto. But Mr. Layton will not talk about the implications of the chair falling into the hands of the Conservatives.

But rather than oppose the Conservatives, Mr. Layton has once again put politics before principle and given them a pass.

Coming from the man who made Belinda Stronach a cabinet minister, I don't think Paul Martin has a leg to stand on when it comes to lecturing people on politics and principle.
