THUNDER BAY, Ont. _ Federal NDP leader Jack Layton holds news conference on HST. (4 p.m. at Tim Hortons, 110 Waterloo St at Victoria Ave.)Like Blue Conservative father, like Orange Conservative son? Next think you know, Stephen Harper will grow a very classy and modern mustache. Or maybe it could be, as was suggested on Twitter, payback for that fetching orange tie that Harper wore during question period a few weeks ago.
Clearly, though, Michael Ignatieff is falling behind quickly in this war of coffee house pandering. I think the pointy-shoe, loud-colour-wearing kids in the OLO will be up late tonight plotting a strategic response.
Do they quickly send Michael to the nearest Timmies, even if it's one of those express ones inside an Esso? Or, maybe, rather than fighting on the now crowded Timmies battlefield, do they try to seize Coffee Time or Second Cup in a pincher movement?
It's tempting, but surely they'll remember their Von Clausewitz.
In Canada, Tim Hortons in the schwerpunkt! Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
