He calls Harper’s government “Canada.” Not good.

Layton scores big hit on Iggy and Steve on Afghanistan. It remains the dumbest decision Ignatieff ever made – listening to Bob Rae on extending our troops’ stay there.
Layton is undeterred. He’s after anti-war Liberals. May work.

Iggy brings it back to foreign affairs, does it well. Iggy tells a story about a young woman going to Kenya. Others let him finish.
Iggy did okay. No one scores big hits.
Stephen Harper: still orange.
