Dion gets an earful on Facebook
Helene Buzzetti of Le Devoir has an interesting little story today - Liberal leader Stephane Dion is facing demands on Facebook to stop propping up Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government.
"With friends like this, who needs enemies?" Buzzetti writes.
Indeed. Here's just a sampling from Dion's "wall" - the place on Facebook where people can write public comments:
"I'm a huge supporter of you, but I think that you're not taking the oppourtunity to slam the Conservatives on their scandal problems. Please call an election after the 4 by-elections," writes high-school student John Zaloznik.
Sarah Mann, a university student in Victoria, is annoyed that Liberals also helped pass the private member's bill re: rights of the unborn. (See blog posting from last week and Antonia's column.) "It is an embarassing week to be a Liberal party supporter and a dismal week for a feminist," Mann writes.
If you want to see Dion's Facebook page for yourself, you can go here.
A warning, though - you may have to sign up as a "supporter" to view it.
