Ontario Liberals vote down new system for picking their next leader
Ontario Liberals have decided not to use a new system for how they pick their next leader.
Members debated a proposal at their convention today to use a one-member, one-vote system.
The measure needed two-thirds support to pass, but only garnered 57 per cent support, so the party will stick with a delegated convention on March 7, 2020.
Delegated conventions are big, dramatic affairs, but they have also fallen out of favour with most other political parties, including the federal Liberals.
Party officials and leadership contenders say they are encouraged that one year after their historic election defeat, about 1,000 people came to their convention.
Former cabinet ministers Steven Del Duca and Michael Coteau have said they're running, as has one-time candidate Alvin Tedjo, and former cabinet minister Mitzie Hunter has said she is seriously considering a bid.
A growing number of MPs are lending their support to Canadian vets in their quest for justice. Is there such a thing as too much of a buffer zone between you and your parents? Should it be acceptable for politicians use VERY colourful language? And later, parents brawl at a little league baseball game.
Yesterday, Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer released his climate plan. Critics say the plan is 'nonsense', just like Prime Minister Trudeau's climate pledge. Do derelict Canadian military vehicles -- in public spaces -- serve as public art that honor our vets? Some say it glorifies war.
