Weekly Round Up: April 24-April 30

Canada's Parliament Buildings Under Construction

Sunday, April 24 | The Canadian PressLeaders gird for frenetic last week of election campaign

“The federal party leaders charge into the cut-and-thrust final week of the election campaign Monday after a docile day of Easter egg hunts and church services. Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff, who needs to close a big gap with the Conservatives and beat back a resurgent NDP, declared Sunday that the campaign has just begun.”

Monday, April 25 | The Canadian Press – Stephen Harper’s most controversial quotes compiled — by Tories

“A 500-page dossier of potentially damaging remarks by Stephen Harper has hit the election campaign, but don’t blame the opposition parties — it was prepared by the Conservatives.”

Tuesday, April 26 | The Globe & MailAs NDP climbs in the polls, markets start to listen up

“Markets have largely payed little attention to the federal election, but that’s starting to change with the latest poll results that show a surge by the New Democratic Party.”

Wednesday, April 27 | The Vancouver SunMinorities work fine — under better leadership

“After a string of minorities, each more rancorous and dysfunctional than the last, a majority is the only thing that can pull Parliament out of the quagmire and deliver effective government. This is not an unreasonable view. But it’s wrong. Starting with its basic premise.”

Thursday, April 28 | Toronto StarLayton a ‘throwback’ who would harm U.S. relations, Harper warns

“Relations with the U.S. would be set back for years if Canadians elect a leftist coalition government headed by NDP Leader Jack Layton on May 2, warns Conservative Leader Stephen Harper. Harper came to Canada’s honeymoon capital Thursday to tout his security perimeter deal with U.S. President Barack Obama — and to take shots at the soaring New Democrats.”

Friday, April 29 | Toronto StarMajority out of reach, Tories say

“Stephen Harper’s Conservatives must win 23 more seats in Ontario to achieve their coveted majority, a task that senior party insiders now admit is almost impossible.”

Saturday, April 30 – Toronto SunLayton found in bawdy house: Ex-cop

“Jack Layton was found laying naked on a bed by Toronto Police at a suspected Chinatown bawdy house in 1996, a retired Toronto police officer told the Toronto Sun. The stunning revelation about the current leader of the New Democratic Party comes days before the federal election at a time when his popularity is soaring.”
