HEY LIBS - Why Doesn't the Membership Pick Leader?
With due respect to my Liberal friends (and those few relations of mine who still insist on remainig Liberal), what is with your leadership selection process?
Considering that both the New Democrats and those dastardly Conservatives have both selected their last leaders by a vote from the general membership, why do you insist on an archaic 'delegate' selection process?
I am always nervous of a delegate process that can so easily be manipulated (as we have seen with the Volpe affair).
In this modern era with a wealth of electronic capabilities, it needs to be explained to me why your delegate system of leadership selection was a good idea.
I am not trying to be confrontational with Liberals, I only want to ask why a more democratic approach was rejected by the grand Poo Bahs of the Liberal party?
