The Liberal party just can't continue the way it has been for the past 6 months or so. SOMETHING's gotta give. Quebec is revolting against Dion, they lost Outermont, almost lost Vancouver-Quadra, lost two seats to the Conservatives, is polling FOURTH overall in Quebec City, Dion's HOME....., hasn't got a chance at wooing western voters, could possibly lose Guelph in the next by-election, and might fall to THIRD place in Ville-Marie.

This isn't an "election speculation" as much as it is contemplating what the Liberal party might do to TRY and turn things around.

I agree that Guelph is definitely very vulnerable but I doubt that the Liberals will lose Westmount with Marc Garneau running there. I think that Papineau (Justin Trudeau) will be the only pickup that the Liberals will make in Quebec.

Ah. I forgot about Garneau. But what if Garneau decides against running? EXPENSIVE to run and he MIGHT not win against the Bloc, considering the unpopularity of the Liberal brand.

Dion will get his chance at the next election. Status quo.

Dion was elected leader for better or for worse and as such will face the electorate.

If he gets slaughtered, then it will pretty well signal the final flush of the toilet on the Jean Chretien legacy and the party can start anew.

Aside from the Dion leadership issues the biggest issue I would imagine within the Liberal Party would be the Rae Vs. Iggy battle that will be brewing in the background.

Unless there is a major shift in the polls, Dion will not be leading his party to a glorious majority government in the next election, and I would imagine anything short of a retaining the government side of the floor will be considered a loss.

With that said the potential leadership candidates have to be at least debating how to move forward on the day after the next election.

That will be when this Liberal brawl for all will become very interesting.

The Liberal party just can't continue in its current state?

Canadian Press

OTTAWA -- A tiny band of Quebec Conservatives issued a call for their leader's head Tuesday, saying Stephen Harper should resign because he's doomed to lose the next election.


How quickly we forget. And how quickly we accuse less sophisticated voters of having short memories.

Does the name Carol Jamieson mean anything to anyone? Does anybody remember who she is?

PS. The point is, things can and do change quickly in politics; the fight is never over, no one is ever down an out. It only appears that way for a time.
