Ignatieff says he could let Jack take lead

  • Print

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.

What was said

"We're in the middle of the third period in a closely contested game ... and some darn politician pops his head up on the Jumbotron. I'd boo. You know, it's Saturday night. They want to watch the hockey."

-- Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff on being booed at an Ontario Hockey League playoff game.

"This is not our Canada. This is not my Canada and I'm sure this is not the Canada of any of the political parties. We find it a disgrace and we hope it stops."

-- Ignatieff on election-related vandalism in Toronto.

"I have a lot of thoughts about Mr. Harper. I don't think for a moment that he slashed the tires on my car."
