Stephane Dion IS a Leader
I really like this new Liberal ad. I think it makes the point which calls to be made, that Dion is a leader - just not the type of leader Stephen Harper is. Where as Harper plays a zero-sum game and leads by fiat, Dion is the type of leader who can bring together 182 countries and get them to all agree on a plan to fight climate change. It was a plan he had every intention of implementing as Environment Minister, and he will implement it as Prime Minister as well.
The ad runs directly counter to the Conservative lie that Dion is a) not a leader, and b) not fit to fight climate change. The ad highlights a very important example of Canadian leadership - Dion's leadership - in fighting climate change. Maybe we do have a chance after all.
