How many Liberals have already jumped ship?

Bet you missed this one little line burried in a story in yesterday's Vancouver Sun...
Dion could just as easily have gone north across the Ottawa River to the riding of Gatineau, currently held by first-time Bloc MP Richard Nadeau who narrowly beat Liberal incumbent Francoise Boivin by 830 votes in 2006. Boivin is back to run in that riding but this time, she's running for the NDP.
Did you catch that? A former Liberal MP, who's now running for the NDP.

The Liberals are having trouble finding candidates in Quebec, and maybe here's why... many Quebec Liberals are following in the footsteps of Thomas Mulclair, and jumping off the "Good Ship Dion" in order to run under the leadership of Jack Layton... who's polling second in leadership across the country, ahead of Liberal leader Stephane Dion.

    As a Christian, you seem to post alot of seemingly demeaning and belittling messages. Do you have any good things to talk about relating to your party? Instead of spending all of this time playing school yard politics?

    Martin: First of all, what does that have to do with anything? Second of all, pointing out that FORMER MPs of the LP are now running for other parties is fair game. The Grits did this before too.

    And considering that the LP doesn't want to brag about the former PC MPs they bagged this time around...

    I agree with Martin. Let me explain:

    My church just had Dr. Mark Chapman from Ambrose Seminary do the sermon and teach Sunday school this morning, and he talked about ethics and how does Christian living relate to our daily lives. He gave me a real wake up call about what true morals are. It's not about whether X candidate supports abortion or gay rights, for example. It's whether they can disagree with one person and still love them for who they are, one of God's children.

    I work in a riding with a crossed over Conservative MP (from the Liberals). Even though I totally disagree with what he did, to wish him any pain otherwise than losing his riding goes beyond being a good person in my perspective.

    So I agree with Martin, some of the posts on this blog go a bit too far for someone who calls himself Christian. For example, the endless assaults on Frank Valeriote (what did he ever do to you?). Why don't you talk about what positive things Gloria Kovach brings to the table?

    By the way, I'm not being partisan. If I see any Liberals doing the same thing, I would feel the same way.
