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.
