A case study of the how the Liberals attack the 'democratic deficit'...

The story of Michael Ignatieff's candidacy in Etobicoke-Lakeshore is told in today's Ottawa Citizen, and it is not pretty.
The melodrama began Friday when the sitting Etobicoke-Lakeshore MP, Minister of State Jean Augustice agreed to step aside for Mr. Ignatieff. Ron Chyczij, president of the Liberal riding association, was told late Friday that anyone interested in the nomination had until 5 PM Saturday to file papers.

But when he tried to deliver his nomination papers Saturday, the doors to the Liberal office were locked and those inside wouldn't respond to his knocks on the door or phone calls. He finally slipped the papers under the door.
He was then told that his application was rejected because he failed to resign as riding president before seeking the nomination.

Democracy in action!
