The party's national executive is expected to rubber stamp the selection of Rae as caretaker until a full-time leader is chosen. A decision on that will be made next month, but the party doesn't want a leadership race to start until as late as February 2013.Rubber stamp, anoint, what's the diff? In 2013 it will be over 7 YEARS since the last leader was elected by the Liberals.
As I keep saying: The Liberal Party of Canada has ceased to exist as a real political party. The Green Party now has more credibility and more reliable adherence to party principles than the LPC.
