'The Liberal Party Of Canada' - a party about nothing ....
The Liberal Party no longer “stands for anything” and could be “squeezed out” by Canadians who think the political spectrum is strictly left or right, says a high-profile leadership contender.
Deborah Coyne, a veteran insider going back to the tumultuous constitutional battles during the 1980s, told The Hill Times last week that she decided to vie for the helm of the once-dominant party because she wants to make the party relevant again. “The main problem is the Liberal Party does not stand for anything,” she said. “That’s why it’s so easy for people right now to ignore it quite apart from the fact it only has 30-odd MPs. It used to stand, and I would like to ensure that it stands again, for the party that represents a strong national government.”
