Lessons in Leadership

I’m disappointed in the Ignatieff campaign team’s tactics which smack of trying to rig a fight rather than going through the battle fairly.

The Liberal Party has already ruled in the matter of the memberships being questioned. The Ignatieff campaign is trying to revise an existing decision.

Any change will have no effect on the progression of the race — lacking a single candidate with more than 50% of selected delgates, the party goes to a convention. Disqualifying these delegates does nothing to move Ignatieff to 50%, thus the ploy is largely academic in nature.

I’m eqally shocked by B.C. campaign workers clams to have been in a celbratory mood in face of a rather poor showing in British Columbia:

In B.C., Mr. Rae took the largest share of delegates — almost 30 per cent. By contrast, Mr. Ignatieff had one of his weakest showings in the province, where he ran fourth with 17 per cent.

That last 20% is going to be very difficult to get, Mr. Ignatieff, and this protest isn’t going to bring it any closer.
