Archive: Show #127 "On Their Mark"

4th Reading

This month, both the Ontario Liberals and New Democrats held their annual conventions. There was much brave rhetoric about their eagerness to take on the Harris Tories in an election expected within a year. But both parties have problems. The NDP seems mired at 13 per cent in the public opinion polls. And the Liberals, while ahead in the polls, may suffer from the "frontrunner syndrome" -- a lead in the polls that may evaporate once a campaign begins. Tonight, Frances Lankin, the co-chair of the NDP's strategy and communications group, and Tim Murphy, president of the Liberal Party and campaign co-chair, join Fourth Reading's political pundits: Conservative John Mykytyshyn, Liberal Richard Mahoney, and New Democrat Ruth Grier.
