Iggy and Jack: crypto-commies

Here's my choice for National Post letter of the day:
Re: A Communist Party Manifesto for Canada, Miguel Figueroa, April 14.

Thank you for publishing Communist Party of Canada leader Miguel Figueroa's election platform. It is refreshing to see an honest politician proudly promote policies -such as expanded social programs, corporate tax increases and cancelled military investments -as communist. At least we now know where Michael Ignatieff and Jack Layton are coming from.

Neil Flagg, Toronto.
Right on Neil! Iggy and Jack may not be full-blown commies (yet) but if we followed their path to more and bigger government entitlement programs we'd get there eventually.

Absolutely! They may use a different name for their parties but their policies are pure communism. It amused me when people attempt to claim that socialism and communism are not the same, for they only differ in how to reach the same goal and objective.

Excellent point, Alain!

That's why Canada can't have a military.. it makes it harder for China or Russia to invade us. (real cosnervative)
