By now you've all heard that Bob Rae has dropped out of the Liberal leadership contest. This is a big disappointment to me, but we can't waste time on disappointment.
It would hurt to see the left cut a deal with a pro-war, pro-torture apologist for U.S. foreign policy...
Geez. Just read that over. Kind of leaves a hollow pit in your stomach, doesn't it?
...but if Ignatieff represents the Liberal platform, and the coalition accord is specific to economic issues, I can live with it. I have to live with it to get rid of the Conservatives, and I have to count on the NDP to stay who they are.
That may be a lot to hope for, but I've got plenty of hope.
Write, call and email the offices of Michael Ignatieff. Tell him we want a Liberal-NDP coalition!
Also: if you have a Liberal or NDP MP, email and call them, too.
Tell them we are the majority and we believe the coalition is best for us, and best for Canada!
