Happy Anniversary Liberal Party of Canada

I remember that day as if it was just yesterday.

Started in the morning in Niagara Falls at the Burroughs campaign. Hit the Valeri campaign in Stoney Creek in the afternoon. Headed over to the Powers campaign in the late afternoon and evening and counted ballots in Freelton. Yes I said Freelton. As the results poured in we headed down the highway over to the Queensway to celebrate one victory. Ignatieff's!

When the result of the election became apparent as the evening progressed there was one thing I heard from Liberals from every corner of the province and from coast to coast as I fielded and made calls:

 "We'll be back in a year!"

Well folks. It's 6 years later and we still haven't figured out what we stand for other than we are the best alternative (even though voters denied that too in May) and we are the natural governing party. Oh, and we like pot.
