Sorry StÃ©phane Dion – I think you had some great policies and had some great ideas for Canada. But how one projects their leadership counts for a lot. One can lament that state of affairs, but at the same time a whole party, caucus or cabinet can bring forward policy, but there is only one part leader.
StÃ©phane was able to bring a lot of good ideas forward but often at the same time, in the same sentence. He also brought a surprising amount syllables to English Canadians. One of his best decisions was to form a pact with Elizabeth May because at least there was someone to explain the Green Shift.
The Liberals apparently still need to complete their re-invention, and in the end the election was probably a necessary step.
Canadians are left with the same mean-spirited, close-minded, and needlessly-combative government that promised to takeover and bring integrity to Ottawa and has so far done anything but. It’s small comfort that it will only be a Conservative Minority.
