Michael Ignatieff: His words, his actions, but perhaps other peoples ideas.
Below you will find a short YouTube video of Michael Ignatieff discussing citizenship and the Liberal Party.
Here is some what he said that he wants to do.
"One of the things I most want to do is to revive the Liberal Party of Canada as a group of citizens working together and make sure that when they meet together at their kitchen tables down at, you know, down in the grassroots of the country and in their homes, we get a kind of channel up right to the cabinet room get up to the leadership so we listen."
While reality was quite different.
The backroom boys who led coup for Ignatieff inside if the LPC did everything in their power NOT to let the grassroots have a say in who would become the party leader. Ignatieff may have said that he wanted to strengthen the grassroots but the truth of the matter is that he hijacked the leadership process and ensured that at the LPC convention policy and renewal was abandoned angering the grassroots of his own party.
Did you happen to catch the bit on electricity corridors?
Say; isn't this one of the very few policy ideas that we have have heard from Iggy and one that he wrote about in his latest book that he claims was not written to improve his electoral chances?
Interesting that he makes no mention that it was not even his idea doncha think?
If this is how Michael Ignatieff treats his own party I would hate to see what how he would treat Canada if he ever became our PM. Let's make sure that does not happen.
