Frankly, I was disappointed in Joyce Murray's speech at the LPoC showcase, and I have severe doubts as to whether her plan for cooperation (A runoff??? A RUNOFF???
) with the NDP and Greens has any hope of success. But the concept of cooperation is an important one, even if the details haven't been satisfactorily worked out yet. And she is the bearer of that concept within the LPoC. Hence the rankings you see above.
You handsome devil.
My biggest issue with her idea is the fact the NDP will not play ball. They could have elected a guy who wanted to cooperate, but they didn't.
So what is the point of pursuing this?
That is the practical problem with it.
I voted for a leader who believes in the Liberal party and the principals of the Liberal party. That's why Joyce Murray did not appear as a choice on my ballot. She doesn't think the Liberal party is worthy of serving Canadians but must allow others to do the job.
My one thought on cooperation is this:
In the HoC, cooperation among the opposition parties is absolutely essential.
At election time, cooperation muddies the waters for the electorate by making the incumbent something to vote against, rather than giving the voter something to vote for.
Right now, we need something to vote _for_ - we already have something to vote against.
"Right now, we need something to vote for - we already have something to vote against."
Funny bro, mine is exactly the same :)
