The Ignatieff candidacy

Michael Ignatieff will be running for the Liberals in this election, almost certainly in the safe Liberal seat of Etobicoke-Lakeshore.

Ignatieff is a Harvard Professor of human rights, is considered to be a possible successor to Paul Martin, and is therefore one of the Liberal's "star candidates" for the election.

But even here, the Liberal Party appears to be incompetent and corrupt. For one thing, they only managed to find a Toronto riding for Ignatieff on Friday, and now they seem to be using strongarming tactics to ensure his nomination, including not answering the door at the Liberal offices when other candidates wish to file nomination papers.

On the incompetence side, the riding they have selected has a large population of Ukrainians. Mr. Ignatieff has described Ukrainians as "phony Cossacks in cloaks and boots" and written that he feels a "disdain" for them.

Really, the Liberals are no longer fit to govern.

More on this at the National Post.
