Liberal Senators Defy Leader Ignatieff

Unprecedented mutiny!

ht: Bourque

Michael Ignatieff's leadership woes worsened Thursday, after some Liberal senators effectively gutted law-and-order legislation that the Liberal Leader had supported and the Senate adjourned for a week before the problem could be fixed.

Mr. Ignatieff is paying the political cost of a disunited caucus and plunging poll numbers. He desperately needs to change a public perception that, fairly or not, portrays him as an ineffective leader who cannot even control his own MPs.
