Sinestra, that is another great idea.
With Dion as leader we can do it in a 1/3 of the time and expense, since we don't have a hope in hell of winning in either Quebec or Western Canada.

You know what, anon? Since you are too afraid to post your name, you're clearly not a Liberal, so your deep an analysis of our electoral chances don't mean much.

Posting my name won't change the electoral prospects.
I read today Dion won't give up his French citizenship. Boy, is he off to a great start, or what. If Western Canadians won't rally around him, at least you know the Parisians will.

Are you suggesting that Canadians with a dual citizenship are somehow less Canadian than others? If you are, how do you feel about New Canadians and their Canadian-ness?

The real question is why would he not want to give up his French citizenship? Why keep it? A pre-requesite for being PM should be that he/she be Canadian, period.
As a proud Liberal, how would you feel if Harper had dual Canadian/American citizenship? Yeah, I thought so.

In the case of Harper, citizenship has nothing to do with it. He's been more loyal to the US in terms of his actions than M. Dion could ever be towards France based solely upon his dual citizenship.

Forcing M. Dion to give up his citizenship is petty at best, and sends a poor, unwelcoming message to those Canadians holding dual citizenship and potential immigrants.

Try to find a valid complaint, but I think you'll be hardpressed.

Sinestra, you are so predictable. Of course, the same compassion,and understanding you exhibit for Dion and new Canadians who have dual citizenship can't possibly apply to Harper if his other citizenship was American.
You are a true partisan. To hell with right and wrong, just get us back in power. Sad really.

I wouldn't have a problem if Harper had a dual US-Canadian citizenship. I DO, however, have an issue with his pro-Bush tactics - citizenship aside. Figure out the difference, anon. I guess Liberal partisanship rather than infighting gets your partisan feathers ruffled. Sorry. You'd better get used to it.

Sinestra, I noted you are a Quebecer, and a federalist. As am I.
My issue with Dion is simple. In 1995 we had a referendum. If you will recall Jacques Chirac on Larry King Live proudly stating that if the Yes side won , and Quebec declared independance, they would be the first to recognize it at the UN.
Now, a future PM has citizenship of a country that went out of its way to de-stablize Canada. Myself and many other English Canadians want to know why he doesn't give it up.
