Action belies words.

larger plan

Is the "small takeover" of Cabinet Minister Herb Dahliwal's Riding Executive by Martin forces "part of a larger plan"? If so, what does it presage?




Not necessary to ensure his election as Liberal Leader, at least by all reports which indicate it is already assured, this hostile takeover most certainly was not executed as part of a conciliatory policy aimed at uniting all elements of the Liberal Party behind him.




If these be not the "larger plan," then what is left? An object lesson to his fellow Liberals of his ability to move against any who would oppose him.




This "small takeover", this act of exercising raw power, belies Martin's words that he will redress the "democratic deficit" in Parliament.



what to

Martin being prepared to earn the enmity of a powerful person within his Party while an aspirant to the Prime Ministership can be taken no other way than indicating little opposition will he countenance once he accedes to that office.
