The Way Iggy-Libs Are Treating Dion Says A Lot About The Current Leadership Of The Liberal Party

"He (Stephan Dion) deserves better than to have his back stabbed by the likes of Denis Coderre, a party apparatchik whose contributions to Canada are minimal compared with those of Dion. But Coderre apparently has the ear and the support of Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, which greatly enhances his ability to make mischief in the ranks of the party's Quebec wing. And Coderre seems to think, according to our columnist L.Ian MacDonald, that Dion should have the decency to disappear before the next election and leave his riding open for a "star candidate."

This is the kind of nastiness that gives party politics a bad name - and rightly so. For all his errors as leader, Dion has long been a stalwart defender of national unity. He rallied to the Liberal cause in the dark days following the 1995 referendum precisely to fight the very real threat of national dissolution. His three open letters to separatists demolished the arguments of those who would tear the country apart and his Clarity Act stiffened the spines of discouraged federalists and infuriated their foes."

Montreal Gazette Editorial

Not to defend the Liberal party's record for respecting grass roots democracy but don't overlook the possibility that MacDonald is doing a little concern trolling. I've don't think of him as being exactly a friend of the Liberals.

Buckdog! Mark the calendar: I agree with you!

L. Ian MacDonald, Mulroney speechwriter, drools anything Mulroney, Duffy and conservatism - you trust that guy?

By the way - Dion's papers HAVE BEEN signed - non-story.
