Andrew Coyne, columnist with the National Post, joins George to talk politics, protest, and provocation. George asks Andrew whether he thinks the Liberals can make a comeback or if the Conservatives and NDP have squeezed the party out past the point of no return.
On Canada's political parties:
If you look back ten years, Conservatives were way more conservative and the NDP was way more left then. I think they've both moved toward the middle -- both parties have -- and that leaves less room for the Liberals." Andrew goes on to say that there's a "50/50 chance" the Liberals could make a comeback: "...the best analogy I can find is that it's a bit like a hockey team that's won several Stanley Cups in a row but that last one they're winning it with 42-year-old veterans...and then you got to go in the basement for a while and you got to husband your draft picks and take your time. And if you don't, if you're always thinking about that next Stanley Cup, you're going to spend a lot of time in the wilderness like the Leafs....if the Liberals are willing to take the long view and build a group of voters that really strongly identify with them...then they got a shot.
