Great News I Think. A Whole NEW PARTY!

The CBC just reported that the Liberals and NDP may be looking at forming a new party. Please, please, please.

Senior insiders with the federal Liberals and New Democrats have been holding secret talks about the possibility of merging their parties to form a new entity to take on the Harper Conservatives, CBC News has learned. Many Liberal insiders confirmed that discussions between the two parties are not just focused on forming a coalition after an election or co-operation before one, but the creation of a new party.

The new party would possibly be named the Liberal Democrats. "Serious people are involved in discussions at a serious level," Warren Kinsella, a former adviser to former prime minister Jean Chr├ętien, told CBC News.

I get so depressed sometimes, and then I read something like this and I am very happy. The new Conservative Party of Canada was the result of several coalitions: Reform-Alliance-Conservatives. It was the only thing that allowed them to gain power.

Now we have to stop fooling around and look at an effective way of reclaiming a progressive government in this country. Let's hope it's more than just talk.


  1. It's not about a party; it's about leadership.
    We've not had much of it during the last decade.

    When was the last inspiring leader we've had?

    Get us a leader and the masses will follow.

  2. I agree. Mind you in Michael Ignatieff's defense, the Conservatives spent ten million dollars running attack ads against him. It's tough to fight something like that outside of an election. I just don't know what else we can do to get rid of this destructive government.

  3. Sorry Emily, but the road to a united left does not go through Warren Kinsella. We discuss this subject at C.R.U.S.H. but we do not claim to speak for the parties involved. Niether does Kinsella. What was his motive for this frivolous announcement? Not sure really, but what motivates him to do any of the odd things he has done? This for instance:


    Sorry, Emily but this dog won't hunt!

  4. You're right. A bit premature.
