I wouldn’t want the American political system to be ours – not a chance – but I have to say here’s what I admire about it. They know how to celebrate their leaders. Think of the Washington Monument or Mount Rushmore or for that matter the Reagan airport. They have President’s Day and movies about their great leaders.
Currently where are our leaders? We seem to have lost our reason for celebrating. The NDP and Liberals both seem to be unable to raise up a leader of significance and currently Mr. Harper sits unchallenged. I actually like Mr. Harper but I don’t believe it is good for his party to be without significant leadership on the other side of the floor.
Even provincially the Premier has resigned and I wonder is anyone really ready to lead?
So where are the leaders?
