Former Dominic LeBlanc supporter John Laforet with the bottom line on what Iggy’s ascension would mean:
Should Ignatieff take the Leadership this Wednesday, the coalition is dead on arrival. He has made it clear through his waffling (my single largest issue past and present with supporting his candidacy) that he will not support working with the NDP to form a progressive government. The Liberal Party will be back to sitting on their hands, red faced and embarrassed or into an election we can’t win because we won’t have had the time to rebuild.
Here’s hoping the rank-and-file rebellion is successful, otherwise we’re looking at a defacto Conservative majority, propped up by Iggy and the Blue Lib Brigade.
