Rob Edger, E-communications Co-chair for Mr. Stéphane Dion's campaign, was kind enough to invite Next Face to the phone in interview with Mr. Dion on May 30, 2006. (We would not miss it for the world.)
We were also asked to forward any questions we might have for the Liberal leadership candidate.
We do have one question for Mr. Dion and it reads like this :
"...Next Face was one of the only blogs that posted Stéphane Dion as an odds on favorite to win the leadership race early on in this process. In fact, to date Mr. Dion remains one of only four candidates that Next Face has endorsed as having a legitimate chance at the leadership run along with Michael Ignatieff, Bob Rae, and Ken Dryden.
Our two part question to Mr. Dion reads as follows :
1. Do you not agree that it is likely that there will be a multiple ballot - with perhaps even as many as 4 or 5 votes cast before a new Liberal leader is selected making your strategy at the convention almost as important as your strategy throughout the campaign?
2. Among Mr Rae, Mr Ignatieff, and Mr Dryden, who would you consider to be closest in sync with your philosophy for Canada and your vision for the leadership of this country?"
Thank you Mr. Dion for the opportunity to participate in your phone conference and best of luck going forward.
