Stéphane Dion’s weak leadership and the floundering of the Bloc Quebecois are as distressing for their dwindling supporters as the prospect of a pair of tight orange coveralls must be for Lord Black.
But for the rest of us, who cares, right? What does it matter that two Bloc and five Liberal MPs have already taken to the life-boats and left the parties that helped get them elected only 18 months ago?
Here’s why: it’s about to cost us $4 million!
All the more reason that voters in those ridings won't be eager to reward weak leadership and a party that is past its expiry date.
