Ignatieff says he could let Jack take lead
TORONTO -- Despite running attack ads questioning NDP Leader Jack Layton's judgment, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff said he'd have no problems working with Layton if he was boss.
Ignatieff told reporters Sunday in Toronto that he sticks with what he's said all along -- he's willing to work with every political party, even if that means working with Layton in an NDP-led arrangement if that party wins more seats than the Liberals.
"What I've said from the beginning to the end has not changed and will not change. I've said I'm willing to work with all political parties -- all. Repeat, all parties in the House.
"What Canadians want after May 2 is for their Parliament to work. We can't predict what the shape of that Parliament will be, but I want to make it very clear my willingness to work with any political party to get the business of the country done," Ignatieff said.
