Ceding the Left

"One major question mark in all this will be the Liberal leadership contest,already under way in sub rosa fashion. Will a leader emerge who is willing to take a chance and be ready to embrace, indeed take a lead in forming, a different kind of political constellation? Or will there be a push by that faction of the party that believes a return to right-of-centre politics will offset the present Conservative advantage.
To this death wish, I am reminded of the comment of Keith Davey, renowned Liberal party organizer, who said that Canadians given a choice will always vote for a real Tory, not a pseudo-Tory in Liberal clothing. "
-Lloyd Axworthy

"By refusing the historic coalition that would have placed it at the helm of the left, it (The Liberal Party) will be punished by history"
-Janine Krieber, spouse of Stephane Dion

Keep telling yourselves that right leaning Canadians are just looking for a reason to vote Liberal and dismissing the concerns of Progressives, Liberals. It really seems to be working well for you.
