The Liberal Party of Canada hopefully has received a wake up call that it is no longer the natural governing party of Canada. Now is a time of renewal as indicated in this editorial.
The people leading the renewal of the party have to look beyond appealing to the rent seekers and influence peddlers who have shaped the party policy in recent years. This stance had led the party into a political dead end.
In times past, the Liberal Party has been a positive influence in Canada for advancing meritocracy and social mobility. Those days may be long in the past, but they are still a history that the party can draw upon for renewal. The party has to reach back into its past to find the principles that people should advance based on their skills and capabilities instead of their inherited privileges, social standing and ethnic/cultural background.
