Bennett fires salvo at Volpe

And why shouldn't she? She's got nothing to lose; he, on the other hand, has plenty. Kudos to Bennett for being, to my knowledge, the first Liberal leadership contender to show some guts and call Volpe on his dirty campaign. In a Globe and Mail letter published today (registration required,) Bennett said that if the Liberal Party is serious about cleaning up its act and facing Canadians, its leadership contenders need to acknowledge the "elephant in the room" that is Joe Volpe's sketchy campaign tactics. There's no reason not to from an ethical point of view - from a political point of view, those hoping to score Volpe's support at the convention are being shrewd. And spineless.

Why won't Joe just go? Do you think that if he did become Leader there would be enough Liberals willing to work for him and more importantly enough Canadian citizens (of voting age) who would actually vote for this guy. I say all the leadership candidates should fire away at Volpe.

Sorry, but Ignatieff also said that "Volpe has tainted the Liberal party".

If Volple gets in - bye, bye Liberal party.

Volpe will be around on the ballot long after Brison and other fake Liberals have been turfed. Volpe is a popular man, who has support from Liberals across the country.
