Today in a remarkable editorial, the Globe and Mail, made its choice for the Liberal leader to be chosen this coming week. The Globe only assessed the four leading candidates and evaluated them this way: Ignatieff has made too many mistakes; Rae has too much bagage; Kennedy is not bilingual. Which leaves Stephan Dion: he has more federal experience than all the others combined; what he lacks in charisma he makes up in common sense; he has mastered the two most important files in government – national unity and the environment. He is not perfect but he’s the best of the four.
I must level here. I am attending the convention as an alternate delegate for Dion. I am confident that when he becomes prime minister he will be one of the best leaders this country has ever had.
