Not so fast Liberals... 
(en francais)

Not so fast Liberals
Lorrie Goldstein

What the federal Liberals don’t realize is that they are now standing on the same precipice the Ontario Conservatives fell off of in 1985.

Almost everything they’ve said since Monday suggests they still see themselves as a government-in-waiting. They assume they will be an effective opposition. They’re confident rookie prime minister-designate Stephen Harper will implode in the coming minority Parliament. They believe the public is waiting for them to pick a new leader, so they can be restored to their rightful place as the natural governing party.

So far, they are making every mistake the Ontario Conservatives did when they lost power in 1985 and refusing to admit what they need to do most — conduct a ruthless self-examination of why they lost the public’s confidence.
As more details are revealed about the upcoming Liberal leadership race, we should get a good indication what path they choose to follow.
