I hope Ignatieff, Rae, Kennedy, Dion, Brison, Volpe, Dryden, Hall-Findlay, and those voting at the convention consider it.
To me anyway, and I am sure a lot of other people, the Quebec as a nation motion is a very divisive issue.
My proposal...given: - the importance of this issue,
- the relatively few members of the Liberal Party that will be debating it at the Convention and they will not have been given instructions, nor bound to follow any such, from their respective Riding and other Associations
- the apparent geographical diversity in opinion
- my firm belief in what I refer to as my Basic Philosophy (and what I believe to be at the heart of Liberalism in Canada). That is: to build a great nation where everyone can attain their potential and join together to help those that need help and protect those that need protection;
and, (my) Fundamental Approach: Which is: informed, open and transparent discussion leading to a truly democratic solution for the good of all Canadians
it is proposed that: introduction of the resolution at the Convention be postponed so that the issue may be presented to all the members of the Liberal Party to be discussed in an informed, open, transparent fashion.
Thus, leading to a truly democratic principle upon which the Liberal Part may contribute to the building and strengthening of this great nation of ours and then to be voted on by the Membership on an individual basis by mail-in vote (or other such).
