    I’m not sure how Alberta is vital, since from my understanding of the rules each riding is weighted at 100 points. Wouldn’t that make Ontario and Quebec, the two provinces with the largest number of ridings vital?

    Due to the way the race is structured having each riding weighed equally anyone that isn’t bilingual is dead in the water.

    As a Canadian I hope that Bernier is able to prevail. If he wins I think we have the best chance of getting politics back to a healthy policy debate, instead of what it has become.

    Personally, I would never want a Bernier as PM. He is so out of tune, he would never in a million years be a Prime Minister for all Canadians. But he is a recognisably Conservative person, not so wedded to racism and intolerance. I am not saying he is a beacon of light or anything, just that he has ideas other than intolerance, and when intolerant, is half-hearted about it. He is the least bad of the lot. Which means he may actually be electable when the Conservatives spend enough money hiding his warts. I guess enough years have gone by to forget about biker chicks, and top secret NATO Briefings left lying around.

    It looks about as stupid as the 2004 Leadership race… ahem.

    I want Chong or Rait. Can live with Bernier. The rest of them? If any of them win, I’ll never vote Tory again.

      Eric,

      What about the Big Guy who is supposed to join the fray right after the Quebec City debate?

        I include him in “others”.

    We’ve seen the Leitch Syndrome before. If we put aside her partisanship, where have we seen the Leitch Syndrome before? Michael Ignatieff. Like Leitch, Ignatieff was extremely well qualified. Like Leitch, a very strong resume. Both were/are very impressive as candidates. And both suffered/suffer from the Halo Effect, or “when you are so good and accomplished in (media, writing, academia, medicine), surely you will make a great party leader and a great Prime Minister.” Except for one problem. The skill sets that enabled them to succeed in their other fields (media, writing, academia, medicine) do not necessarily transfer to politics. Ignatieff was a very smart guy, but he did not have very good retail political skills. Don’t know about Leitch that way. How is she at meeting people at party functions? Ignatieff was bored by that stuff and it showed.
