I first heard it on Classical FM this morning. Dr. Carolyn Bennett, battle axe extraordinaire has thrown her hat into the ring, as of this morning. She wants to lead the Liberal Party to certain doom... I mean, glorious victory.
Looking online, Canadian Newswire, corroborates what I heard.
Her campaign has a strong focus on democratic reform. "We have to engage
Canadians in the democratic process not just on Election Day, but every day.
We have to show them we know how to listen and respond appropriately. We have
to put them back in the centre," she said.
Lady, you are running as leader for the Liberal Party. No one, short of a handful of idiots, is going to buy the idea that your party is interested in democratic reform, especially when they are getting the beginnings of it from the Conservatives, via the ethics package.
