Dion to Follow Through
Good to see the new Liberal leader already confirming that he's going to follow through on a promise, even if it's one I don't entirely agree with.
As an alternative to this, I'd propose a different plan, though it would be legislative, not simply the prerogative of a party leader. I would propose that each riding elect both a male and a female MP. That way, no one has to worry about a more qualified candidate losing the nomination because of their gender - and we would get total gender parity in the House. Win-win.
