I'm someone who stumbles my way through, leads with my chin in some cases, leads with my heart in all cases. It leaves me way open for all sorts of criticisms left, right and centre. You know what? I was raised with pretty thick skin. And I think people are hungry for politicians who aren't afraid to say what they think and mean it.
Can I actually make a difference? Can I get people to believe in politics again? Can I get people to accept more complex answers to complex questions? I know I can. I know that's what I do very well. Why am I doing this? Because I can, not because I want to. Because I must.
I'm willing to work extremely hard. The idea that my father raised sons that expected anything to be handed to them, to not roll up their sleeves and work harder than anyone around them, is not to know my dad.
My father's values and vision of this country obviously form everything I have as values and ideals. But this is not the ghost of my father running for the leadership of the Liberal Party. This is me.
I think a lot of people have fallen into the poor habit of thinking about leadership as Stephen Harper's model, that the only person he takes advice from is the person he sees in the mirror every morning. And that's just not what I understand as being leadership. I think that's not right for a country as rich and diverse as Canada. And I certainly saw, from my father's own example, that he used to surround himself with the brightest people he could possibly find, experts in all kinds of different areas, and draw on their strength and expertise to build the big picture.
