Is Ignatieff Suffering from Dionitis?

Stephane Dion was plagued in Quebec by "so-called" senior anonymous, insider, reliable sources throughout his entire tenure as leader. Heck, I even witnessed an anonymous interview firsthand during the Outremont by-election.

Now we have this report coming from the Le Devoir this morning telling us that, once again, the Party of Chretien and Trudeau will be cowering from a confidence vote. Understandable as we learn that only 30 of the 75 ridings actually have candidates ready to go.

I guess my biggest question remains, who are these "reliable sources" in Quebec, and why can't they shut their damn mouths?

The Star concurs with Le Devoir. No election.

The moral of the story is that, even though we have the national media almost entirely on our side, and Stephen Harper has regained all his baby fat, it appears that the OLO is not confident with internal polling numbers, money or the amount of candidates that are in place to run across the country. With only 5 nominations in place across Ontario, that would make sense I guess.

Throw in the fact that The Prime Minister's office has booked an official visit by the Emperor of Japan during what would be the official writ period, and voila, no election. Hello summer break in Parliament. It's almost like they know what's going on in Liberaland before the rest of do. Isn't it?

Except I would suspect this anonymous leak has Iggy's blessing.

I've often commented that the Quebec wing is out of touch and needs to be replaced. They are a picture of arrogance, ineptitude and stupidity.

But hey, call an election, it would be amusing...

Nice to see at least one Liberal blogger admit the Canadian media is in the tank for them instead of the ridiculous spin that the Candian media are Conservative shills.

Shill? Like as in Senator Duffy?

Yes Reid.. why, the Sun Media Chain, the National Post.the Globe and Mail and CTV are just full of Liberals and Liberal sympathizers.

Maybe Reid, they're just being critical of Harper because he deserves to be criticized, rather then them being "in the tank" for Liberals.

Reid said...

With respect to the Canadian media, Mike Duffy was 1 person out hundreds. Surely you're not so greedy as to deny our side about 0.1% of favourable media coverage?

Seems that Iggy is having a hard time at the conference... Stupid Liberal media, did they not get the memo....

Responsible thinking and demands from Mr. Ignatieff this fine Monday morning. Good on Mr. Ignatieff.

Cheers, Eugene Parks

Reid - the only Liberal media we have is the Star - give us a break.

You know, you think it's Liberal media because Harper manipulated you and set that notion in your weak little mind - LOL, you fell for it. A sucker born every minute as they say.

I imagine the media would be friendlier to Stephen Harper if all his recent interviews weren't Fox News exclusives. I mean really, Fox News?

You have got to be kidding me. Almost all English media (cept the Star) endorsed the Cons in the last election. This even though it was pretty obvious (it certainly was to me) the Cons were lying through their teeth about the state of the economy. Liberal bias my a**
