Liberal Premiers reluctant to support Dion

Been watching the news over the last few days, and it's not been good news for Dion from the various Liberal Premiers across the country.

Right now, Liberals are running half of Canada's provinces... PEI, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia. Of those provinces, two Premiers have been more or less silent since the campaign started, and the other three have been, shall we say, hesitant at offering their support to the Federal counterparts.

Quebec - Liberal Premier Jean Charest (a former Tory leader, it should be noted) has said he won't be endorsing either the Liberal or the Conservatives in this election.

Ontario - Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty declined to endorse Dion for the Prime Minister's post, instead using the chance to press all parties to clarify how they intend to assist his province.

BC - I don't recall hearing much from him since the campaign started, if anyone could clarify and/or correct that, I'd appreciate it.

New Brunswick - Liberal Premier Shawn Graham offered what has been reported as "qualified support" to Dion and his "Green Shift"(TM)... hardly the kind of ringing endorsement he needs right now.

PEI - Not having a plane until last night, Mr. Dion hasn't made it out that way yet... it will be interesting to see how that goes.

Oh, I nearly forgot... Dion HAS recieved a ringing endorsement from one "Liberal" Premier... Newfoundland's Danny Williams has heartily endorsed the Carbon Taxing "Green Shift"(TM), which stands to drain further millions from his provincial coffers.

    The BC Liberals have severed ties with the federal party since the 80's I believe. They're basically conservatives.

    I saw Danny last night on the news and he seemed like a very angry person.

    I can understand sticking up for your province but it came across as well....i can't think of the word.. but just mean spirited.

    Even though BC Premier Gordon Campbell has not endorsed Dion, he did state that St├ęphane Dion had privately assured him that BCers would have special exemptions: "Mr. Dion actually called me and said there would not be a double taxation, that he does not want to impose something that will not work on British Columbians." (Question Period, CTV, July 6, 2008)

    More "support" for Dion.

    And Danny says he's going to take his show on the road.
    LOL Like Quebecers and Albertans and BCers give a rats butt who Danny thinks they should vote for.

    Stay home Danny, you're lookin' pretty silly.

    I don't think you will hear much from our Premier Campbell in BC. With the backlash from his Carbon Tax, he is deep in his bunker and the incoming is deafening. Don't expect to see any comments from him on his 'ero' Steffie.
