Apparently the Liberals have one, and the package was almost released a while ago. I also suspect some measures on the "abuse of power" front, or at least I would hope so. The question now becomes, why aren't the Liberals seizing the moment and filling the large vacuum available to them?
Is there a better time to release a democratic reform package, any other reforms on accountability and/or transparency? Particularly after last week, is it possible to get any more traction than this exact moment? Notwithstanding the contempt hearings which are set to launch today, I'm wondering if we aren't missing an opportunity to show a true contrast. If the Liberals wait until the campaign begins, any reform package will be a one day story at best, whereas right now there is this current void just begging to be filled.
No one knows what the Liberals will offer, but it needs to be bold, timidity will be met with a collective yawn. There is a vocal and engaged subset that will respond to a progressive presentation, but reforms have to challenge self interests and really shake up the status quo. The Liberals have an opportunity to capitalize on the present disinterest in the same old, true reform a springboard to a renewed brand. To maximize any impact, I'm left scratching my head why we aren't all over this golden opportunity that has presented itself? Events have presented themselves, reactive is required, dust it off, spruce it up, but get it out there now while it's topical. Hard pressed to think of better timing, rather than opining about arenas, stay in the fashion of the day and make some noise, on a file begging for some content.
