  • Although the Leadership in 2013 is still a way off and we should be concentrating on rebuilding, I am the first to declare my leadership intentions and hope to hear from you all as time goes on. A bit about me I am 32, live in Oakbank Manitoba, Full time University Student and former Paramedic in my community. Thanks. Shane.

    • Full time University students might not be allowed to run for the leadership, although you could probably support others. Who would u endorse? Wouldn’t declaring this early make you unqualified?

      • I won’t be full time by April, As for declaring this early I really have no choice. Canadians need to get to know me before the actual leadership race begins I don’t have the luxury of waiting until right up to the event. What in your mind makes a leader qualified or unqualified?

      • Like I said I have to declare this early as I am challenging the huge registration fee. I can’t exactly do that when the race begins.

      • I have made a decision to run for the Liberal Leadership of Canada. This is because I am pretty much the complete opposite of most of the leaders that have ever led or want to lead the party. I am a regular middle class person, who has a mortgage, debt, is paying for school and I am also young. Most of all I have not been playing the game of…[Read more]

        • Shane,the above what you have written is your own.Ofcourse,you do not need further more political experience.You are experienced.There were many examples,knowing nothing, people have come to the top position.And the money part,if there is a will,ofcourse there is a way.Later do not say,you are going to withdraw,then you are not a theoritical politician.

          • I intend to do my best to get my name on the ballot, as a newcomer I do have an uphill battle but, I feel I have a message of hope, and will inspire the party in my own way. I know i am not the typical candidate but, thats what this is all about. Shane.

        • You should seriously re-think your pre-emptive approach. It might be rather embarassing to the party and those within the official process. Other than that, most will undoubtedly support ur enthusiasm.

          • Hey, I appreciate all feedback. I don’t quite see it as pre-emptive. Rather I am introducing myself to the party. Stating that i do desire to lead, We as a party must look to the future and I will do my best to take you all there. The Liberal party has already heard about my ambitions and I was congratulated on my enthusiasm. We are all in this…[Read more]

          • In what way would it be embarrassing for the party and the official process? If perhaps he had gotten more media exposure, we could have overshadowed the NDP leadership. Additionally, it shows that there is still support at the grassroots level.

    • That is another reason I am declaring my intentions so early. This fee is something that I do not think is appropriate. the NDP fee was 15.000. Having to pay 50,000 I feel is a way of buying your way into leadership. This really tells us that only the rich can ever lead the party. I understand the concept behind the fee but, that fee is more than…[Read more]

  • #Liberal Leadership 2013

    I am the first declared candidate for the 2013 Liberal Leadership. My reasons for declaring this early is that I need Canadians time to get to know me and what I will bring to the party. As well I am challenging the HUGE registration fee to even get on the leadership ballot. This is something I cannot do as the race…[Read more]

    • Hi Shane. How fun to have a leadership candidate to haras…I mean, question!

      Please tell the class what you mean when you offer hope. Also, what is your position on cooperating with the NDP and Greens ahead of an election?

      • Hey, thanks for the question. Hope, when was the last time you felt hope for the Liberal Party? I mean really felt it? I know I sure haven’t in the last few elections. I think we have been doing things the same way for long enough. To really defeat the Conservatives we as a party need a game changer. We can’t keep the same old cookie cutter…[Read more]

      • Hello Richard

        Well I think you can see what I am all about from my bio on the Liberal site. Why should you bother reading anything else from me? That is the beauty of our democracy, you don’t have to. However I would think as a Liberal member you would want to know what all of the leadership candidates have to say. That being said, I am offering…[Read more]

    • Congrats on putting yourself out there, Shane. The huge registration fee will not be a problem once you begin to attract a ton of supporters. Most successful politicians start out working for a interest group, let’s say Greenpeace, then run for a municipal office, then run for an MP or MPP and finally run for leadership. Of course a very…[Read more]

      • Hello,

        Thank you for the comments and yes I do see where you are coming from absolutely. It is good to be getting feedback from across the country. They way I look at it is that hope is a mainstay. I think over the past few elections with our declining party status and poor support, I can’t help but feel that we do need a message of hope. There…[Read more]
