His speech on the economy, economic potential comes the day after the defection/resignation of long time P.C. MHA Tom Osborne from the Dunderdale caucus.
The official description of his speech reads "MacDonald will discuss why he feels the business community plays a vital and positive role in the politics and governance of our province."
Many ears and eyes will be glued to his style, substance and responses to reporters questions.
While some prominent liberals like Ed Hollett have been beating MacDoanld up at every opportunity, many more are looking forward to an official announcement that he will be seeking the Provincial Liberal Leadership.
No doubt he has the vision and substance needed to put forward an alternative to the governing Progressive Conservatives. MacDonald is part of a Liberal Renewal Committee that is touring the province strengthening the grassroots on the road to rebuilding, consulting, enhancing the party policy platform, ramping up fund-raising and membership efforts, and modernizing and party structure.
Many see him as the person best able to retire the debt, breathe new life into the party and attract candidates that have been reluctant to support the party in this period of Progressive Conservative
Dynamic new leaders are tall orders.
It is hard to think of anyone more dynamic than Dean MacDonald to lead the Liberal Party.
