In the coming campaign, all will be old hats on the hustings, save one. This election, skillfully brought on by Mr. Harper, will hinge hugely on the performance of first-time campaigner, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff.

The Fate Falls on Michael Ignatieff
Lawrence Martin wrote in the Globe and Mail that the results of the upcoming election are all going to depend on Michael Ignatieff. I agree with him. Throughout the past few years, public opinion figures have not budged much from before: Tories at low-mid thirties and Liberals at high twenties. People do not know what Michael Ignatieff is about and this will be his chance to show Canadians what he believes in and how he is going to make Canada a better country. Then again, if the Liberal leader performs badly, we will be surely in for a Conservative government and maybe even a majority.
