At least from their Great Anointed Leader Mr. Iffy, Michael Ignatieff. They have not been invited to attend the great Thinkers Conference this weekend. They have been told to stay home.
Mr. Iffy must think his caucus are not smart enough, not good enough to attend in this great event in the presence of great deep thinkers to think deep thoughts. What about the grassroot Liberals, where do they fit in? Do they get to have any input?
I know I wouldn't want to be part of a party that ignores the grassroots, keeps party MP's from an important event like this that is supposed to be developing policy to take the party into the next election and beyond.
Federal Liberals will set aside shallow politics later this week to engage in Deep Thinking as they ponder the prospect of Canada turning 150 in 2017 under what they hope will be Liberal rule.
