I bought a Liberal Party of Canada membership. And will be actively campaigning for … anyone-but-Harper.
I guess I’ll be voting for the politician most likely to beat Harper.
There are many reasons why Harper has to go. But the last straw for me was when he sent a few planes and a few dozen men to bomb people. It’s a pitifully symbolic gesture. One that will accomplish nothing aside from inspiring terrorists to retaliate against Canadians.
The best thing Liberal Prime Minister Jean Chrétien ever did was to refuse George Bush’s “Coalition of the Willing”, a group of 49 countries that the U.S. said supported the mission despite the lack of authorization by the U.N. Security Council.
Let’s hope Trudeau is half as good as Chrétien. One quarter as good as his father.
