http://www.canada.com/globaltv/national/story.html?id=9110d258-fe90-4a5c-915a-d9ec0bbf2d64 I'm glad Dion won. He was my pick right from the start. I was worried that Rae or Ignatieff might win, both of them would be tough sell for prime minister. For those who don't know, the Liberal Party is historically the most powerful and longest ruling party in Canadian politics. Right now, they are the opposition.

I was a Bob Rae fan at the beginning, but Dion is a good man. Go Liberals!

I'd rather get shot than vote for Dion, sorry, I just can't stand the guy.

Well to get back with that: J'emmerde Le parti libéral! and "Libérez-nous des libéraux"

So, you prefer conservatives? Outside of narrowminded partisan negativism from the Bloc and stories dating a dozen years, I can't see a real reason to hate the Liberal party of Canada. Seriously, whats so horrible with them, or with Dion? I don't feel any incentive to waste my vote to the Bloc, and I don't want to send this country to the sewers with the Conservatives.

After following this for years, I finally admit my support goes to the Liberals. I kept wondering : the Bloc and all Péquistes HATE them, there must be a reason? Well the reason is simple : they don't like what Trudeau did 23 years ago. Well, that, is 23 years ago, what about NOW? I'm a passionate of history, and I know its importance, but sometimes, we need to look to the future, and to the present moment.

I can't see a future with the Bloc, I can't see a future with the Conservatives and I can't see a future with the NDP. The constant lies that the Bloc is feeding to us, their fading purpose and their extremely negative stance to everything regardless of facts has me completely fed up. The Liberals are a party I can support because I'm a center-leftist that cares for the environment and social justice, thats what the Liberal party does, and its about that that we keep being fed lies here in Quebec (good ones too, I heard a couple of times the Liberal party of Canada was a far right party... I wonder what Conservatives are then).

Eh well, gotta tell you that I sort of lost much hope in the current parties, any of them... so... Like we say in French : Blanc bonnet ou bonnet blanc, same thing.

Well, regarding provincial parties I share the same disappointment. It seems to me there is no hope for the Liberals of Quebec or Péquistes (with BOISCLAIR :rolleyes: ), and even less with the funny ADQ and even more funny QS. On the federal scene tho, I see some hope now that I didn't see before. It might not last, but I'm going to try not to be too negative towards absolutely everything there.

Hahahaha! I wouldn't celebrate so soon! Dion is completely unelectable. He's french, he can barely speak english, he is totally uncharismatic, plus he has a terrible record as a cabinet minister (clarity act anyone?). He will neither sell in Quebec or Ontario, and he'll do worse in the west. I can't see him making any gains for the Liberals anywhere.

Thanks libs for giving us a majority! :D

He can speak English fine, and besides, Chretien couldn't speak English that well, and you saw how he massacred Mulroney. And totally uncharismatic? You mean like Harper? Besides, conservatives have said Dion was the candidate they least wanted to win because of his prime ministerial (is that a word) qualities that far superseded Rae and Ignatieff. Next election is going to be close. I think voters voted Conservative last time to punish the Libs. Conservatives or way at odds with the rest of Canada when it comes to environmental policy and foreign affairs.

Canadians are sick and tired of the same old liberals, and that's exactly what Dion represents, the old gaurd of the liberal establishment.
