File This One Under “Things That Will End Well”

Marie Poulin had to step down as LPC President and the LPC is looking for a replacement. Under the statutes of the party, the replacement for President must be either the VP Anglophone or VP Francophone of the party.

So the Liberal Party may be entering a federal election with one of 2 possibilities for LPC President.

Either one who cannot communicate with a quarter of Canadians, or someone who is bilingual but is celebrating her 28th birthday in a couple of days.

I think somebody will owe me a beer after this one...

Ummm... isn't this exactly why the Liberals have a VP francophone and VP anglophone?

Can't wait for your column on the linguistic capacity of the Conservative Party executive and how it has been such a key component to their progress in Quebec.

No - the party should have a bilingual executive. Ideally, the president would be bilingual, but they don't have to be, not as long as there are capable francophones and or anglophones to compliment them around the table.

But what about the other parties?

Surely, Stephen Harper, who, as you frequently describe, can do no wrong in Quebec must have a bilingual party president as well, or at least a francophone vice-president, right?

A unilingual Manitoban?? I am scandalized! Shocked and Appalled! Surely the higher calling of "journalism" --cough, cough-- dictates that at least 5% of the amount of shit you have to throw at the Liberals be directed at the other side...
