Think about that for awhile you Iggy or Rae fans.

It makes no sense to assume that Dion has close to enough support left to pull the strings to get it done.
Why would anyone listen to him?
I think out of the 77 Liberals there could be 9 that could easily be persuaded* not to show up for such a vote.
* I never said who would be doing the persuading did I.
Sounds like a winning election strategy to me.

Tired old lines from a tired old party hack who jumps on and off the bandwagon when he sees it as a benefit, not for the party, but for himself.
Pathetic yes, but a perfect fit with the ideals of the Liberal Party and his boy Iggy.
BTW, do you honestly think even WK believes it when he writes crap like this: " Message to Canadian women: if they get a majority, they plan to take away your right to choose. Period. " ?
IMHO, it says a lot about what he thinks of the intelligence of his own readership.
Some Grits think Martin's Bay Street cred is just what the country needs in uncertain times, and they are quietly exploring a "Draft Martin" movement...."
Please pee into the cup; thanks.

A sample form from The National Post Full Comment (April 25, 2008, 2:11 PM by Dan Goldbloom)
"Some 600 people attended, including more than 20 MPs and Senators from across the country. As such, it was the showiest Liberal box social since the 2006 leadership convention. To the amazement of many but the surprise of none, the man who now holds the title of leader was not present — neither in person nor in spirit. Dion's name was uttered from behind the speaker's podium only a handful of times."
"Speaker Alfred Apps introduced the next clip with a wry grin. "This is not an insurrection," he said, but "an exercise in pure nostalgia." What followed was the very Ignatieff promo clip shown on the convention floor in 2006: an uninterrupted stream of endorsements from politicians and campaign workers reminding us that Iggy was "the one man" who could improve Canada and take on Stephen Harper. Audacious, deliberate and engaging, it stopped only short of calling for Dion's resignation. "
With' team players' such as Ignatieff on board and perhaps as their leader, the Liberals are destined for the continued greatness they have shown in opposition.

Congratulations Mike. It is not that easy to be recognized when you are an Alberta Conservative MP and this is really quite the accomplishment, and if I may say so, a well deserved one.
Read the entire story here.
Update:There is more green than meets the eye at The Province as for some reason they have included the following at the end of the above linked story on John Shavluk. (screenshot)
"Aldergrove.'fortified' barn burns to ground
A barn in Aldergrove that firefighters say was used as a marijuana grow-operation burned to the ground in an early-morning blaze yesterday.
The fire started in the electrical system of the two-storey barn that was divided into several rooms, said Langley's assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson.
"The building was heavily fortified. Its windows were boarded up with plywood," he said. "We confirmed it was a grow-op."
It took fire trucks from three fire halls five hours to control the blaze in the 400-block 256 Street, he said.
No one was injured.
The owner of the house on the property told firefighters she rented out the barn and had no knowledge of the grow-op, said Ferguson."
Just what is The Province insinuating here?
And guess which of the above two gets paid for by the taxpayer?
White House sources who did not want to be identified are denying the rumour that Vice President Dick Chaney has been secretly training Barney for the last month by holding up pictures of Wolf Blitzer and poking Barney with a stick. Another anonymous source commented that Sarah Palin was supposed to do the training but declined because she did not know how to speak Scottish to Barney, a Scottish Terrier.
Hey, my story is about as credible as this nonsense, but yet this story garners 4000* stories in the MSM. (* Google search)
We really are in trouble when anonymous smears get this kind of coverage by the MSM.
When is that asteroid arriving anyway?

Congratulations to President Elect Obama. I wish him the best with the difficult job he has ahead of him, and a reminder that the clock starts now on when we will be seeing some of that "Change we can believe in". Good luck and nice hat!
Back to Canada and an interesting reality with our local Liberals. 'Their candidate' Obama got elected and now they can rejoice, but with it they have lost the use of the Bush/Republican card against the Conservatives and now they have to find a way to hide or at least disguise that rabid anti-Americanism that Liberals are famous for.
It will take some time but I think the glow will fall off Obama for the Liberals when the realities of what an American President has to do for his country and his roll as commander in chief becomes clear.
It will be fun watching them squirm when the hawkish side of Obama comes to light and the soon to follow Harper= Obama comparisons eventually surface, because no matter how much lefties try, they all end up with a hate on for the POTUS and Obama will be no different.
