Just to get something out of the way quick. Jack Layton's been a public figure in Toronto for as long as I've been here, which is over 25 years, and under the public spotlight that long. This claim is bullshit, though I can't remember if its bullshit I've heard before--years ago--or not.
And I don't know what the guys at SunTV think they can accomplish with this kind of nonsense. |Maybe its simply a matter of bumping up their hourly viewing numbers into double-digits. But you're not going to turn people against the NDP by running this blatent a smear against their leader.
