With the Conservative banning abortion from foreign aid, and removing Toronto Pride funding, personally I feel some kind of Rubicon has been crossed.
Yet, with more and more of these social conservative policies being put in place, the Liberals (who ran pro-choice, pro-gay rights under Chretien and tepidly under Martin) seem unable to capitalize on the re-emergence of the "hidden agenda". Under Ignatieff, it seems, they just can't own these issues, or even conduct politics competently for that matter.
Do you think there is any chance the Liberals will "wise up" and dump Iggy for someone else before he's even fought his one election? (Though I have no idea who might be waiting in the wings to do a better job).
