Stephane Dion got it wrong.

Remember Dion's famous quote from the 2006 Liberal leadership convention.

Priorities to the liberals is for the liberals and no other so to Dion's own frame of mind at that time 'it would be rather difficult for him to balance Canada's priorities and liberals' priorities. That's tough.
