NDP Leader Jack Layton is all revved up.
Layton said it's time Ottawa fuelled the Montreal Grand Prix with taxpaper dollars.
"Yes, of course, Its a very important event, not only for race fans but also for Montreal's economy," he told Montreal's TVA.
But that's not all. He said those same tax dollars should be used to bail out sports teams.
"Obviously we would join with the city and the province to help because the benefits are very important for the local economy."
