Dion talks to the bloggers

I got this surprise email the other day from the Liberal party asking to take part in a blogger telephone. Since I haven't posted in a while, because of my hectic schedule this summer. I thought this would be a great opportunity to get back in the game.

My thoughts,

Dion gets it, Stephane talked about the importance of Blogs, and their impact on the youth and young people. He is ready and willing to reach out to the new media, and does not hold any biases toward new technology and its influences.

The green shift is too good of an idea. Lets be honest this is daring scheme that is too smart for a politician, it is actually trying to make our country a greener place. For those who slam it, they don't understand, and to truly understand Stephane's passion for stopping climate change, should try to understand that this idea is bigger than partisan politics.

Dion's position on passenger rail surprised me. I was greatly impressed as he understood that our country was founded on the principal of the railway, and that intercity public transportation is good for the environment. A Liberal government would enhance VIA rail and would help develop a high speed train link on the Windsor-Quebec City corridor. I was impressed by this, and his overall view that transit creates better cities for Canadians to live a more greener, affordable lifestyle.

Overall, I am probably the last person to comment on this conference call, and for the next conference call, I am going to ask some tough questions.

So, I am back on the blog.
