Looks like Quebec is a write off for the Liberals...

Quote:
Federal Liberals from Quebec will move to show Stephane Dion the door if he doesn't give up leadership of the party on his own, Sun Media has learned.

Former Liberal candidate Pierre-Luc Bellerose, who ran for the party in Joliette, northeast of Montreal, said dissatisfied members will begin the process to revoke Dion's party membership if he doesn't quit as Liberal leader.


Dion is not a leader.

So he is facing a revolt from a separatist province? Maybe he is not so bad after all.

lol. but I think that the "revolt's" epicenter lies in Montreal, the english speaking hub of Quebec and more likely to support federalism.

With a FALL of Liberal support in Montreal and warming to conservatives in Vancouver, all that's left for the Libs is the 416.

Maybe someone should start a new federal party called the Toronto Party to take even MORE seats from the Libs! lol.

Toronto already has a party called the NDP.

I love St-Hubert's but I'm afraid that most people outside of Quebec won't understand the reference on that banner.

Am I being just partisan, or does Dion going on TV begging the party to stay unified make him seem really, REALLY pathetic?

So Dion is rumored to be "facing an ouster" AND so is deputy leader, Ignatieff (facing rumors of a demotion...).

Wha???

Is it possible that the Liberal party could DROP Dion, demote Ignatieff and hold another "vote" to bring in Bob Rae as the new Liberal leader??

Sounds pretty complicated.

Can they really last another year and a half with Dion as leader? Quebec is falling apart and infighting is escalating.

Even if things "simmer down", there are anti-Dion's in there that won't exactly change their mind about their "leader".

Something's gotta give. Either they'll pull the plug by goin to an election (and put themselves out of misery by losing, and then regrouping), OR they'll have to restructure their party by demoting IGGY, or ousting Dion.

Which will it be?

Don MacPherson of the Montreal Gazette must have read your post. This was in Saturday's Gazette.

Quote:
Memo to Dion: Looking pathetic won't win you votes

----
But perhaps even worse than laughter for a politician is when people start to feel sorry for him. Nobody pities a prospective winner, and elections are not won on a sympathy vote.

And for the second time in six months, with his declaration that he is (still?) the leader, Dion looked pathetic.

PQ is in 5 minutes. Let's see how the seating is rearranged for Iggy, Bob and Martha to smother Dion.

IMO the only solution for the Liberal Party is for a total meltdown and a complete rebuild. Maybe the high flyers such as Manley and Tobin etc.who were chased away by the sponsorship scandal (and rightly so) will come back to the fold to lend a hand.

The status quo or rearranging the chairs won't cut it.
