Grits Go to Pot!

… And Avoid Going to Copps

That was the terribly witty headline in The Winnipeg Sun this morning. Never mind the snarky double-entendre; both are welcome developments arising from this past weekend’s LPC convention in Montreal Ottawa.

From scanning some of the news stories about the convention and, more importantly, the blogs of those who attended, it seems there’s a promising hope of revival emerging from the doomed wreckage of the last federal election.

A lot of media pundits seem to be complaining about the dearth of thrilling new policy for them to chew on. Well, perhaps… but so what? There will be plenty of time for that to take new form in due course. For now, the most important thing was simply to demonstrate that the party isn’t a totally lost cause or terminally foregone conclusion, and in that regard, it seems to have been a modest success.
