      I have been calling for the party to take a balanced position and to remain neutral when it comes to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

    • I was on duty in the former Yugoslavia during the conflict of the 1990s, when the term ”ethnic cleansing” first came into use. Ethnic cleansing is the expulsion of members of an ethnic group from a territory. It is a serious crime against humanity, but it is not synonymous with genocide, which is the extermination of a people, in whole or in part.

        It sounds like you had an interesting experience in Yugoslavia. You are partially right, literally ethnic cleansing is not genocide, however ethnic cleansing cannot occur without the extreme violent means that define genocide. Due to the nature and scale of the violence necessary to clear an ethnic population out of a territory, ethnic…[Read more]

                        • Had Clinton made his observation without feeling the need to attack Justin by attributing to him something he neither said nor implied, this debate would never have taken place.

                          “Your” bottom line is fine, I have no problem with that and if that was what Clinton had said, we would not be having this discussion … but what Clinton attributed…[Read more]

                            • Possible, yes. I wasn’t talking about donations though but Clinton’s further speculation that this policy of ours cost us membership – something he cannot support with any data that I know of. I would say that it wouldn’t make much sense for a member of the Liberal party to renounce their membership over this single issue when there is no one…[Read more]

                  • In addition to what Mr. Showell said, I would also point out that neither the federal NDP, nor the Ontario NDP sport the kind of well-oiled fundraising machines that the other two parties carry. They have lagged consistently behind on fundraising since the end of the per-vote subsidy.

                    • Just to be clear – Mr. Trudeau did not take any stand – he merely affirmed what Liberal party policy was as voted on at the 2012 convention. A stand would have required Mr. Trudeau saying such a thing prior to it being party policy.

                      • Respectfully, affirming a policy and making it quite the public point about candidacy for the party rather makes it a stand. Indicating that an LPC MP may not vote against a woman’s right to choose strikes me as being reasonably concrete. A policy resolution at the convention is one thing. Declaring it quite publicly as policy in front of the…[Read more]

                        • I don’t agree that affirming the party position equates to taking a stand but that is quibbling at best. It could be it equates to taking a stand and my view is incorrect.

                          It would be quite possible to measure the effect of the statement. Generally, when people drop their party membership they make a point of stating why. As for the loss of…[Read more]

                          • As you say, that is quibbling. But I think that the media emphasis on it makes it pretty impossible to go back on at this point.

                            As far as whether or not it’s possible to measure, yes, perhaps you’re right. It may be possible to. Perhaps more accurately, I should have said that it simply isn’t feasible. Do you really want to see the party…[Read more]

          • Clinton, in your first post (above) you referred to “anti-abortion constituents”, which would mean any member of the LPC … not those who wished to stand for nomination as candidates. Big difference. I’m fine with that, and if anyone feels they can no longer be a member of the LPC because of it, that’s fine with me too. I’d rather stand for…[Read more]

        • I don’t understand what you don’t agree with? My post said nothing about religion.

You don’t agree that it cost the federal Liberal party members and donations? Fair enough. I…[Read more]

    • Just to note, the quoted numbers ”raised” are gross dollars, not net dollars. The conservatives, spend considerable more, to raise their donations than the other parties.

      Do you think as the party remains silent on the mass killings of civilians in Gaza , essentially supporting what is happening because to me silence is complacency, will hurt the party?
