all quiet on the ignatieff front.

As mentioned by my good friend Bart, it seems that only one of the 11 Federal Liberal leadership candidates has yet to comment on the current Israel-Hezbollah conflict in Lebanon.

Most surprisingly, said candidate is none other than international scholar and intellectual Mr. Michael Ignatieff...

I find it very interesting that Canadians have yet to hear from such an authority figure on international issues. I'm sure Mr. Ignatieff has an opinion on the current situation. Is it because his campaign doesn't think that Canadians will like his answer? Maybe. Maybe not.

But these are the sort of issues that Mr. Ignatieff is going to have to get used to answering if he wants to be Leader of the Official Opposition and eventually Prime Minister of Canada.

wow. Even Hedy Fry had a comment on the conflict. What a shame Iggy is slient on this issue, i'm sure he'd have a lot to say about it.

Perhaps speaking out on these issues has little to do with signing up members and working on delegates...
