Chantal Hebert Shouts At The Moon

Tells Liberals to "wise up" about electoral reform. [Liberal]Why should they do that? Soon, the people of Canada will wise up and we will have a Liberal majority government again[/Liberal]!

Seriously, there are Liberals who are for electoral reform, but they are not in control of the party. In fact, the opponents of reform in Ontario who did the most damage, were Liberals, some of whom reside in the editorial pages of the very Toronto Star, within which Ms. Hebert is writing. So, until Liberal reformers take control of the party, the idea of the Liberal Party, as an institution, getting behind electoral reform is a pipe dream.

Update: As if on cue, we see the "Just wait and the Liberals will control all, once again" wing of the Liberal Party pop up.

Update 2: Ok, so it looks like BCL does support the idea of electoral reform, but I still hold that hanging on to the idea that a Liberal majority is just around the corner is a zombie that just won't die, in spite of the overwhelming evidence to the contrary. It is this zombie that is holding the Liberals back from truly embracing reform.
