Progress?


 

So this evening—after some amount of fussing over the technology that resulted in an electronic vote, two votes to conduct a manual recount and then a decision to redo the electronic vote—the Liberal party decided to open its next leadership vote to those who are not members of the party. Non-members can now register with the party as “supporters” if they wish to vote in the next leadership contest.

Delegates then voted down a proposal to extend this measure to the selection of riding candidates. And delegates then voted down a proposal that would have eliminated the party leader’s final say over the party’s policy platform.

Make of those events what you will.

Sunday morning delegates will vote on a constitutional amendment that would limit the leader’s ability to appoint candidates.


 

Progress?

  1. I thought the Liberal’s implosion was done and they could now (attempt to) rebuild from scratch. It seems they want to make the dysfunction created through decades of ignorance, self-service, and arrogance complete. Keep up to good work!

  2. “…the Liberal party decided to open its next leadership vote to those who are not members of the party.”

    My, my…the mischief makers in the CPC will rejoice at the news.
