Liberal EDA President Resigns "because of Dion"

According to The Star's Susan Delacourt, all's rosy in the world of the GTA's Liberal EDA Presidents.

Maybe not so much in SW Ontario... Sarnia-Lambton's Liberal EDA President Anne Marie Gillis has resigned, claiming that she's disillusioned with the leadership of Stephan Dion.
They were going to stand on their principles,” including their support for the Kyoto environmental accord.

But after meeting with the caucus, Dion backed away, she said. “The caucus all sat on their hands,” she said.

“It’s better to die on your feet than to live on your knees,” she continued. “The opposition’s role isn’t to survive, it’s to oppose. I’m a little disappointed.”

Gillis predicts bad times are ahead for the party.

“The longer you delay (forcing an election) the weaker you become. People do not follow weakness, they follow leaders. They are setting themselves up for a real fall.”
Just reporting the facts, with no commentary. (more posting it for my own archive down the road)

    Sorry Hugh, none today... taking a day or two to stay quiet, rethink about what I say and how I say it, so that I don't go "stepping in it" again.

    Of course, just wait a few hours... I happen to know something is coming down the pipes, on which I WILL comment. ;-)

    See this is what differentiates a conservative blogger from a liberal blogger. Conservative bloggers like yourself have tact and realize when commentary can be readily used against them if the story in question is merely an "allegation".

    Liberal bloggers on the other hand (Cherniak comes to mind) just can't resist the opportunity to smear even when it comes around and bites them in the bud.
