The Economist on Iggy

“The new leader has yet to set out where he and the party stand on many issues”


 

The Economist is hailing the arrival of a credible opposition leader in Ottawa, even if they’re not yet sure what he’s about. “More than five months after the Liberals, the main opposition, dumped Stéphane Dion and replaced him with Mr Ignatieff, the new leader has yet to set out where he and the party stand on many issues,” the respected journal writes. The magazine acknowledges that opposition parties are often punished for outlining their plans too far in advance of an election and outlines what Ignatieff has said so far. Looking ahead, they warn of an election that may be “closely contested and dirty.”
