The NDP has already announced they will run the biggest campaign in its history, matching the Conservatives dollar for dollar.
And today, the electronic pages of The Hill Times quote Layton's communications head saying that they are headed down-under to talk to Australian PM Kevin Rudd's election team:
" . . . we know that there's a tremendous amount of willingness on the part of the Australian Labour Party to work with the NDP to show us, to teach us from what they learned from their most recent elections," said Brad Lavigne, director of communications and research to NDP caucus in an interview with The Hill Times last week."
This makes sense, of course, as Harper turned to the former Howard government for tid-bits on their 2006 election win.
Look for an eerie symmetry in the election results.
