Report Pro Life? Then Don't Run Under Liberal Banner in Federal Politics Posted May 23, 2014 This thread was never meant to be about abortion per se, it was about Trudeau's judgement and commitment to party open-ness. It revealed a style that even his MPs seem to be uncomfortable with - and only time will tell if his judgement is politically sound. It doesn't matter who wins the next election - there will be no change in status of abortion at the federal level. Mr Trudeau therefore accomplished two things. Call into question once again his fitness as party leader and apparently end the Liberal Party's claim to be a Big Tent. You get the impression that whenever Justin opens his mouth there are cheers from the Conservative and NDP camps. Memo to Mr Trudeau: in the recent Quebec election the PQ got thumped because they insisted on talking about sovereignty and Islamic head scarves instead of the issues the public wanted to hear about: jobs, healthcare, education. Don't you make the same mistake.
