Perhaps this is a silly question, but I have been searching The Google, and for the life of me I cannot find an answer.

How is the Liberal leadership election going to work?

Will it be like the most recent Conservative Leadership Election where you will have a ballot with choices and should your hopeful drop out it will move down to the second name on the ballot or

will one vote will be cast, and that vote stays with whomever its for, and that person can move that support over to whomever they want once they drop out.

I read how this works in the paper (Vancouver Sun?) a while back... I can't find a link, but Wikepedia has a good explanation:
Quote:
At the convention, the first ballot by elected delegates is pre-set according by proportional representation according to the amount of support each leadership candidate received at the delegate selection meeting (i.e., the "leadership portion" of the ballot cast at riding association or club meetings), even if the delegate has personally expressed support for another candidate. Ex-officio delegates can vote however they wish and it is only they who will cast ballots initially. If there is a second ballot (i.e., if no leadership candidate receives over 50% of the vote on the first ballot), all delegates will be free to vote according to their personal preference.

Basically each candidate will bring in their brown envelopes... whoever's is heaviest with tax payer dollars is the winner and new dictator of the Liberal Party of Canada.

Thanks for the question!

It's simple to conclude that 30,000 Liberal Party members will elect thier leader but by election time we won't be able to chose our Prime Minister. In other words what ever party wins the leader runs the show in Canada's semi democracy structure.
