    Seems Mr. Layton was dismissed last year when he said Canada/Nato needed to have talks with the Taliban to resolve Afghanistan... now after many reports the conclusion is that we cannot resolve anything with only a military solution... we all need to talk... even ta them Talibans.

    Jack Layton has as much credibility as a guy handing out job applications at a homeless shelter... seriously, he used to do that. He's obsessed with trying to get rid of homelessness in Canada. Its his MAIN thing that he's always fussing about... except he hasn't clued in that Canadians in general don't give a f*** about homelessness.

    So, he advocated a position that was unpopular at the time, that others have come around to agree with. Not sure how his concern for the homeless lessens that in any way...

    I can understand people who refuse to give money to the panhandlers on the street corners but I don't know if that extends to not giving an eff about homelessness.
