Bravo to Belinda Stronach

This past week, I wrote the following about Belinda Stronach:

I'm still looking forward to the moment where one can attribute the political smarts directly to her, an authentic moment that says she really deserves the attention being paid to her.
Well, kudos to her, she did it. Read her statement today. She stood up, made a bold move and has changed the political landscape for the foreseeable future, on so many levels. I don't know where to start with this but will try to sort it all out in coming posts.

I also posed a question the other day, "where have all the leaders gone?", wondering whether there was anyone who might step up out of the current morass and actually cut through all of the fog to speak about what is really important in this country. And finally someone did it. Not one of the leaders but someone who has now demonstrated leadership. And lo and behold, that person was Belinda Stronach.

Good for her, I applaud this move heartily.
