Liberal Extraordinary Convention: Leadership in 2013

Just a quick post here on the results of this afternoon's convention which went off without a hitch and with much collegiality on Twitter.

The date for selection of the next leader was the principal issue of the day. A proposal initiated by a North Vancouver delegate won the day, pushing a vote back to a date between March 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013. This extended the time frame the national executive had proposed, a date between November 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013. So we're not talking a major extension of time but every little push in months into the future allows for a greater emphasis on other issues than leadership and more on rebuilding. That seemed to be the sense that was rallied to during the debate.

Oh heck, let's just let Mr. Milliken handle this.

Multiple hours on the phone were fun but have done me in for the day! Have a good one!
