Liberals to hold "thinkers' conference" in January

What better place to think deep thoughts than Montreal in the dead of winter? The Toronto Star reports that the Liberal Party will hold hold its long-awaited (by some) “policy-renewal gathering” early next year. The plan? To kickstart languishing party morale—not to mention those flagging poll numbers—with a Kingston-style ideas conference. So, what does that actually mean? Not even the Star seems to know for sure; the agenda is still very much up in the air, although MPs have apparently received a questionnaire from Ottawa MP Mauril Belanger, which asks them to suggest possible topics and speakers. The confab is slated to take place from January 14th to 16th, barring a sudden election.
