MONTREAL–Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff brought a pragmatic message to this environmentally conscious province yesterday, defending Alberta in the name of national unity.
Keenly aware that his greatest future electoral opportunity is in Quebec, and his greatest challenge in Alberta, Ignatieff essentially told Quebecers they needed to get with the program when it comes to the Alberta tar sands.

I'm pleased about this - the Liberals are becoming a mainstream centre party again. Dion's sidetrack will just be remembered as a bad dream, I hope, it is better to have to centre parties in Canada, so that we can have a real opposition, and real choice.
