Actually there’s no chance for smiling Jack to become “collateral” damage in the trust wars, he fired the first shot for heaven’s sake. Jack’s even more guilty that Jim on the trust file fiasco of the NDP’s making.
If the NDP want to have any chance of winning this riding, they need to parachute in a star candidate like Judy Wasylycia-Leis, since she is possessed with special powers to divine the existence of tax leakage from 18 pages of blacked out documents. That takes a special kind of skill, not often found among lesser mortals like me and Doug Anderson of the Green Party.

The Whitby-Oshawa riding election race just became a little more crowded.
Brent Fullard will be the Liberal candidate, subject to confirmation at a candidates meeting scheduled for Tuesday.
He joins Progressive Conservative candidate Jim Flaherty, the incumbent and Canada's finance minister, and Green Party candidate Doug Anderson.
Mr. Fullard is the volunteer CEO of the Canadian Association of Income Trust Investors/Taxpayers, a group he founded to advocate for accountability and transparency from the Harper government.
A 1979 graduate of Queen's University, he has spent over 20 years in Canadian capital markets, recently as Executive Managing Director and head of Equity Capital Markets for BMO Nesbitt Burns and presently as the head of Catalyst Asset Management.
"I look forward to campaigning in Whitby-Oshawa against the practices and policies of the Stephen Harper government and outline why I believe Ontario is a great place to live, work and invest, and how we can make it even better," Mr. Fullard said today.
Mr. Fullard has been married to Christina for 20 years, and together they have three teenaged children.

Will Jack Layton be foolish enough to run a candidate in Whitby-Oshawa, only to become total collateral damage in the trust wars?
