Liberals are making a mistake in Outremont

I sincerely hope Michael Ignatieff will reconsider his decision, and allow Martin Cauchon to contest the Liberal nomination in Outremont. Cauchon is the kind of person we need on the Liberal team, and sidelining him is a mistake:

Didn't the Liberals block Saint Justin from running in his own area last time?

Hmmm, I know in your minds I belong to the party of the Devil, but at least in my EDA I got to vote for my choice of candidate.

That doesn't seem to happen much in the Liberal party.

BTW, my personal opinion is that Coderre is going to destroy the LPQ. He is a boorish moron with leadership aspirations.

Personally, I would love to see him as Liberal leader...Hizbullah anyone?

Keep up the mediocre work Libs!
