The idea behind this site is something that I find quite appealing. I got the vague impression after the 2006 defeat of Paul Martin that many people in the higher echelons of the Liberal Party regarded the loss as a temporary hiccup on the way to permanent Liberal dominance of the Canadian electorate. The mindset seems to have been, let’s clear this up, pick someone – anyone – as a new leader and on we go again.
It’s not going to be that way. And even though the Liberals do well in the most important part of the country – i.e.: Toronto 😉 – it’s not enough to, you know, actually win power in Canada.
