3:18 p.m. Rae takes leadership of the third party …

The third time was the charm for Liberal MP Bob Rae, who was selected to be the party’s interim leader Wednesday in a secret-ballot vote by a decimated Liberal caucus.

Rae takes on the challenge of leading a party that was just given its worst electoral showing in Canadian history. He said it starts with trying to convince as many people as possible to join the Liberal party, listen to what they have to say and take action.

” The people of Canada gave the Liberal party a very clear and tough message in the last election … ” Rae said , speaking to reporters shortly after the caucus meeting where he was voted into power. ” It’s a message that we have received and we have understood “…

Rae said there are three priority issues for the party to focus on ; Health care … National unity … And the gap between aboriginal and non-aboriginal Canadians. He called that gap ” the most profoundly difficult question we face as a country “…

” When we look at the conditions on reserves , when we look at the fact there are communities that are living without running water , without adequate housing … When we look at the extent of the poverty … This is an issue that has to be addressed “…

AHHhh !!! … Goin’ for the aboriginal vote right off the bat are ya Bob ?!!! … If I were you , I’d be less concerned with that demographic and pay more attention to the fact that you’re not from Quebec !!! … You mangle the French language instead of English !!! …

Gotta hand it to ya tho … You scored a high payin’ job for the next few years and no one expects you to do much for your pay !!! …

HELL !!! … For a QUARTER of the pay and perks … I’D LEAD THE LIBERALS THRU THE WILDERNESS FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS TOO !!! …

But … Bob just likes to have his fun … At the taxpayers expense !!! …
