Why do we need a Liberal party?

Will the coming federal election be the Liberal party’s last?

Canada’s looming federal election is already one of legend — it’s the first three-way race in our history, it’s been cause for ominous warnings about the entrenchment of an American-style permanent campaign, and it’s been preceded by Tory members of Parliament jumping ship as if their party were the doomed hybrid of the Titanic and the Lusitania.

But what if the most remarkable thing about the election is yet to come? What if it’s the last election for the country’s erstwhile “natural governing party” — the Liberal Party of Canada?

    The comments section gives this Conservative voter some hope.

    The federal Lieberal Party is taking a long time to die but if the Quebec elites turn their backs on it for the second time this fall, it will be terminal. Anyway, Canada’s long suffering taxpayers deserve a clear choice between a party of the left and one of the right.

    Thats what they say about the moronic corrupt conservatives when they were down to only two seats

    And then they bought the reform party, were given easy liberal opponents and are back as corrupt as ever.

    The last thing any mainstream party wants is for one of their mainstream “opponents” to go under, cause you don’t want real opponents filling that vaccuum

    “… the Liberals under Trudeau have largely abandoned the left.”
    Buddy may not have an entirely accurate view of the circumstances.
