Wow. Apparently the Quebec wing of the Liberal Party now thinks that Stephane Dion is such a bad leader that they no longer even want him to have membership in the Liberal Party. That's quite an insult, even for Dion.
As reported today by the Ottawa Sun, a group of Liberals, led by former candidate Pierre-Luc Bellerose, has threatened to revoke Dion's party membership if he insists on remaining their leader. Instead, they hope to have a new leader selected and in place by the summer to prepare for the possibility of a fall election.
To engage in such an act of hostility and to do so in such an overt and public manner really shows the degree to which Dion is out of touch with the wishes of his members. If he ignores them when they will go to this length to send him a message, he will only weaken himself further. If he heeds the membership now, he might be able to get out with at least some dignity intact, although perhaps not.
Personally, I encourage Dion to remain Liberal leader for as long as possible just because I find this whole saga highly entertaining and I can't wait to see how much worse it will/can get for Dion!
