Ignatieff: “This party is not for merging”

Liberal leaders shuts down idea of Lib-NDP merger


Shutting down recent speculation about a possible Liberal-NDP merger, Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff told a Grit policy forum in Dartmouth, N.S. that his party is not interested. “This party is not for merging,” he said at the end of a 20-minute speech to about 155 delegates. “I’ve been saying it all along,” he later told reporters. “This party will run as the Liberal Party of Canada, with a positive, compassionate, responsible message . . . and we will win government. Period. That’s what we’re doing. That’s the business I’m in. I’m not in any other business.”
