Liberal Party - "ABOUT, FACE!"

What's this? Is Dion's new found backbone weakening somewhat?
Libs open to new anti-terror proposals: Goodale

Liberal MP Ralph Goodale says his party continues to support allowing two key powers in the Anti-Terrorism Act to expire, but would be willing to hear proposals to amend the provisions to protect civil liberties.
I wonder why they're offering this olive branch? Oh, right, the article goes on to explain why...
"The issue could become the first real test of Liberal leader Stephane Dion's leadership. On Wednesday, he instructed caucus members they must oppose renewal of the measures. Some reports say that Dion warned his MPs that those who defy him may not be allowed to run for the party in the next election."
Looks like Dion clued in... he was about to get spanked by members of his own caucus, who were going to vote in favour of the measures regardless of the personal and political cost, to themselves or the Liberal Party. I want names... I want to know who stood firm and fast against Dion... because I want to shake their hand.

This is a good thing for Canada. I'm glad Mr. Dion has seen the light... even if he really only made the move to save face.

    Right On , I was hoping that there was some spine left in the causus in the Liberal camp to throw a flame under the feet of Dion. We'll see how this plays out.

    On another blog (Joanne's), I indicated a willingness to applaud Dion if he were to change his position (Red Tory did, after all). The longer he takes to do so, if he indeed does so, will make that applause more and more tepid and brief.
