A Great National Endeavour

If you have a few minutes, take a look at a speech written by Ken Dryden called A Great National Endeavour. Quite a visionary view of where Canada is, and where Canada can be. For the next few months, as Stephen Harper sets in as our new Prime Minister, we should be comparing his vision to this vision.

By the end of a leadership race with Dryden in the mix, I'm sure the choice for many Canadians will be clear. As a country, we have to think big and think nationally.

We won't become a beacon of the world by simply having a loose configuration of 10 nation states.

The decision the Liberal Party makes regarding its leader is more than a party matter. It is about the kind of country we want as Canadians. If the party chooses a leader unable to beat Harper in 2007/2008 then he will have free reigns on dismantling our great society.
