Under a slate grey sky with blowing rain cutting into their faces, half frozen Saskatoon and area New Democrat supporters waited and waited for NDP Leader Jack Layton to get off his campaign plane today.
"This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen," said a disgruntled supporter who sought shelter in a nearby bus.
The plan was for the rally to be held in a hangar at the Saskatoon airport but the company refused to move the planes out. Layton ended up speaking from a wooden soapbox just outside the gates to the airport.
