A Primer for Americans on the NDP's Jack Layton

The name "Jack Layton" will be appearing in headlines across America over the next few news cycles. He's going to be appearing on behalf of the Democrat Party as an avid proponent of the Canadian Health Care system.

Do listen to what he says but also be aware of the following:

  • He belongs to a party that is in 4th place in terms of seats.
  • 4 out of 5 Canadians consistently reject the socialist class warfare message of Layton.
  • You'll learn in this interview (beginning @ 7:00) that not all is rosy here in Canada.
  • His nickname is "The Video Professor" due to his striking resemblance with John W. Scherer.
So, before you take him too seriously, please realize that most Canadians don't either.

You forgot to mention that Layton himself goes to a private clinic.
