In the next step of the erosion of the Liberal brand, Manitoba Liberals are the latest to consider changing their name to distance themselves from their federal counterparts. While the Brault testimony was still under wraps and only available to the political class, reporters and those of us in the blogosphere, I speculated that it might represent the first step in the bankruptcy of the Liberal brand in Canada. Will the Liberals become the new political pariah in Canada? The Alberta Liberals have already had serious discussions concerning the changing of their name and the abandonment of the brand. Now Manitoba’s Liberals seem to be considering the same. Is this just another sign of things to come?
