A Victory That Sowed Defeat

Posted on Tuesday, January 24 at 08:23 by nancymarie
Nowhere has that war been fought as fiercely as here in British Columbia. And it will soon rage again as those who succeed in toppling Chretien in 2003 to install Martin as prime minister pay the price for not only political failure, but their arrogance and vicious tactics that alienated many party members. The results of the federal Liberals battling among themselves will soon be clear, as the "natural governing party" that has been in power for most of the past 100 years is relegated to opposition and Martin is forced to resign the prize he spent 13 long years chasing. An incoherent and stumbling campaign, a severe shortage of experienced political staff, volunteers and money, and an abundance of bad blood between the Martin and Chretien camps has left the Liberals lurching towards disaster. http://thetyee.ca/Views/2006/01/18/VictorySowedDefeat/ [Proofreader's note: this article was edited for spelling and typos on January 24, 2006]
