Belinda Stronach for Liberal Leader!!!

On April 6, Belinda Stronach dashed the hopes of many Liberals across Canada when she declined to run for the leadership of the Liberal Party of Canada. The purpose of this site is to try to show her that MANY Liberals, and just as important, many Canadians, support her candidacy for leader so that Canadians have a choice in the next election between an ideology-driven party and a party of conscience who will build Canada up rather than tear it down!

Belinda, your party and your country needs you. You have already shown your commitment to your principles once, by joining the Liberal Party. You have shown you can handle criticism, and weather a storm. Please, Belinda, take the leap!

We need Belinda to lead the Liberal Party and defeat Stephen Harper!

So help us send a message to Belinda that she should reconsider her decision! You can email her or sent a note to her office. Also, please send me your endorsements so we can show her the depth of her support! I will post the comments I recieve on this site.

    The Liberal leadership is truely full of nothing but a list of poor candidates. I agree with you Jon, Belinda would put this country back on the right track! A good leader like he should be at the head of this nation! I sending my letter to endorse her now.

    While this leadership race is becoming somewhat of a clown show, what is more notable is the seething array of testosterone in the race. If so-called progressives like Bob Rae and Michael Ignatieff want their party to practice what they preach, they should join the call for more credible female candidates in this race. I'm all for Belinda reconsidering and entering the Liberal leadership contest!!!!

    What is the goal of convincing Ms. Stronach run for the Liberal leadership? Is it:

    a) For the express purpose of removing Prime Minister Harper from office and returning Canada under Liberal rule as quickly as possible?

    b) For the express purpose of rebuilding the Liberal party into a respectable party that will accept the results of the of the people in a clean election campaign, be it opposition or government?

    These are two very different goals, despite sharing similar paths. If the goal is the former, then Ms. Stronach, as a woman of principles, did the right thing by staying out of leadership race. If the goal is the latter, then Ms. Stronach should be made aware of the support for such a move, but people should be willing to accept her decision, whatever it should be.

    I would rather have Ms. Stronach lead a party that puts the "honourable" back into "honourable members of parliament" than a party who cares for nothing except their own power and removing obstacles, such as Prime Minister Harper, to said power. If it can be shown that Ms. Stronach is willing to put the "honourable" back into "honourable members of parliament" for the Liberals, then I encourage people to support her. Otherwise ...

    Otherwise, I'm voting Conservative. Again.

    We need Belinda because only she is fully aware of Harper's secret agenda.

    Belinda, lot has been given to your and your family by Canada, so Canadians expect a lot from you.

    Indeed. I hope she and many other Liberals read this blog. I believe that she would bring a new era to Canadian politics, and I was disappointed that she was unable to follow through on her democratic reforms.

    Wake up Liberals - she is the best of the best!

    I agree with dominque who talked about a "seething array of testosterone" in the present race. As I truly doubt that Belinda will reconsider her position I would like to draw your attention to Martha Hall Findlay. First to declare .. Great French ..Good policy ideas and absolutely no internal( Martin v Chretien) or external baggage!

    The Liberal Party won't be rejuvenated without Belinda. She only alluded to the fundamental problems during her press conference, she needs to be in this race in order to have the influence necessary to fix the party.
