"When asked if he would welcome Mr. Volpe's support in the same way he had welcomed Ms. Fry's, Mr. Rae replied: 'Let's not talk about hypotheticals.'" (Translation: No.)

He should have done what Carolyn Bennett did and call for Volpe to dropout. Whoever Volpe endorses will be hurt in the next general election if that person wins the leadership. I hope whoever we choose doesn't have to rely on Volpe's support.

Miles. There is nothing wrong with Carolyn Bennett. She's great. Sadly, she supported Mr. Rae out of all people. Carolyn is an experienced Member of Parliament, and a great Liberal. However, her policies introduced would make her a great Party President, but not leader.

For damage control, let's just let Joe Volpe go into full throtle. Well, probably not since it would be giving has poor choice but we don't want him to drop out and endorse someone.

I will also like to point out that Mr. Ignatieff hasn't been that ethical in the same regards as Volpe. He signed up a lot of people, including a man who has been dead for a few years.

Anth - I fully agree, in fact I was saying exactly the same thing, that Rae should have called for Volpe to drop out. I am no fan of Bob Rae due to his NDP roots, but I don't despise him the way I despie Joe Volpe and I don't think he is nearly as a big a liability as Volpe.

In the case of Ignatieff, this is the first strike against him, while Volpe has been involved in several sleazy activities, so many it would take a page to list them all. One mistake can happen due to having the wrong people around you, but having scandal after scandal follow you says something is wrong with your ethics. Volpe is exactly the type of person that personifies what people don't like about the Liberal Party. He needs to go.
