Arch socialist “Taliban” Jack Layton is hosting a radio show today on CFRB, from Noon to 1PM EST. Listeners can call in with questions.
Maybe you can ask him how he feels about his party being endorsed by Mohammed Elmasry, who believes that all Israelis 18 and over are “legitimate targets for terrorism”, and who more recently led the persecution of Mark Steyn and Maclean’s magazine.
NDP Leader Jack Layton will host his own one hour talk show across the Astral Media Radio Newstalk Network on Wednesday, September 17th from noon to 1p Eastern.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Liberal Leader Stephane Dion and Green Party Leader Elizabeth May have also been invited to host their own talk shows to be carried live on Montreal’s CJAD, Toronto’s CFRB, Hamilton’s Talk820, CKTB in St. Catharines, CJBK in London and News Talk Sports AM 1150 in Kelowna.
Astral Media is still waiting for those three party leaders to choose their dates.
“The NDP confirmed Monday that Jack Layton will host his own talk show this Wednesday.” said Steve Kowch, the National Director of News Talk Programming for Astral Media Radio. “The rules are simple. Only the leader is in the studio to take as many calls as they can from Montreal, Toronto, Southern Ontario and Kelowna, BC. Listeners will be invited to call a toll free number to speak to the party leaders.”
During the Ontario election CFRB in Toronto, CKTB in St. Catharines and CJBK in London aired talk shows hosted by the province’s main political leaders. It was such a success with the leaders and listeners that Astral Media Radio has decided to make this format available to the main federal party leaders during the current election campaign.
