Alright, I'm going to Montreal to cover this Liberal leadership race for Blogging Tories!

Who should I track down for an interview?

What questions should I ask?

Note that the top four candidates will be limited in the press availabilities as they are in high demand. Who'd be a good mid-level interview? What answers are you seeking from Liberal officials?

Interview Paul Martin.
"What are the mistakes he made in politics that he most regrets?"
"What are his plans for retirement?"
"When was the last time he talked to Jean Chretien and if he had the chance, what would he really like to tell him now?"

I would be curious to see what someone like Ken Dryden would have to say about the potental party purge when a new leader is selected,

Martin added much of his own flavor when he took over the Liberals, and one of the first orders of business was to dump leadership rival Sheila Cobbs body into the River, I wonder if some of the more intellectual and right of center or center leaning Liberals worry that if Bob Rae, or Gerard Kennedy win the leadership their place within the party may vanish.

Any idea where Dryden fits in the Liberal continuum? Would he find himself "wandering in the woods" if the Liberals are pulled further left?

I see Dryden as the textbook definition of "Liberal" he is as center on every issue as they come, but he really is one of the true "intellictuals" within the party, I really see him fitting in more so with Iggy or Dion then with Rae or Kennedy.

More then anything for the first time in a very long time you have four very different visions and directions for the Liberal party in terms of folks who have a chance to lead, and I think that it may be shortsided for the Liberals to believe that a Gerard Kennedy style Liberal will fit into Iggy's Liberals, or a Maurizio Bevalluvcha will fit into a Rae Liberal Party.

I would think this vote really does have some Liberals debating their futures.

Ask them why they are afraid of the big issue that's on everyones mind? Some questions on how they expect to be a national party/government when they can't tackle national issues within their own party?

Martha Hall-Findlay, the woman the Liberal party pushed aside for Belinda Stronach. Ask her is she gets the riding next time round. Ask her why she stuck with the Liberals, when it was pretty clear she was playing second fiddle.

I'd like to see an interview with Scott Brison. As an x-conservative, I'd like to know who he supports. I'd also like to know how he thinks Harper and the Conservatives are doing in power.

I'd also like you to ask any Liberals, who they perfer; us, or the NDP. As i grew up in socialist Saskatchewan i particularly resent the NDP over the Liberals.

well if you are really asking and maybe would,

i would ask all of the candidates if the word prohibition re the drug problem in this country should be addressed by maybe opening a debate about it and if they support their own conventions resolution calling for cannabis legalisation?


it is an approved resolution and could set the stage for ,finally a debate about the costs for us all.

pretend video games and gambling were illegal , how much would it cost to enforce?
