Massimo Pacetti is an Italian from Montreal, so he has Mafia links, yes?

Of course it should be pronounced Vshesnevski.

IMO, the candidates should pledge to muzzle Tequila Sheila after that bizarre trollish rant of hers in the Hill Times.

Also, looks like Kennedy doesn't see his thumping as an obstacle. The problem is that there are no vacant seats in Ontario for him to run in should he win unless McCallum retires voluntarily and Kennedy tries to capture it. If Kennedy does enter, then the soft prog wing will fracture between he and Kodak- plus Trudeau stays neutral because he's close to both of them.

He could run in some Atlantic seat, couldn't he? The Tories would be smart not to put up much of a challenge; if the Liberals stick around, it hurts the NDP.

It's easy to forget that the Liberals actually won a plurality in Quebec in 2000.

This is a bad thing. They just had an Anglo leader. They can't have another one again.

Alternation for its own sake is long obsolete, but it always has a way of imposing itself even when better-qualified candidates of the other linguistic group are available. See 2006 for details. There are much better reasons to oppose Rae's potential candidacy than his mother tongue. Unless you think LeBlanc is genuinely the best candidate for non-linguistic reasons.

Oh, I don't care about the rule. It just amuses me as a tradition.

The problem is that there are a lot more non-NDP votes than NDP votes. If the Liberals want to remain relevant, they need to win back the ridings in Ontario that the Tories have taken from them. Bob Rae will actively hurt them there.

A Rae run seems inevitable at this point.

Why is the Alberta Liberal leader's last name Sherman? Is he Anglo-Indian?

If Lamoureux weren't in his first full term in Parliament, he would be an interesting choice for leader.

If the Liberals were to hijack the NDP as a way of returning to power, what on earth would be the point of having an NDP?

It seems odd that Trudeau would be viewed so positively, considering the way in which Trudeau managed to earn the hatred of everyone in the country by 1984.
