Harper's "Key accomplishments" backgrounder on criminal justice issues seems to be missing a few things...let's help them out a bit. Bruce Carson. Patrick Brazeau. Conservative party pleading guilty to election law infractions. That's better.

This is a solid op-ed in many ways on the Liberal party, the leadership race, the necessity for big ideas and the moment we find ourselves in as a country. A few lines that stood out: The Liberals need to get beyond their internal naval-gazing and political beauty contests and focus on the redefinition of a modern, progressive role of government to confront these domestic and international new world orders. This should be the Liberal project that...
