News in Review The Liberals: A House Divided

In an unprecedented move against a sitting Canadian prime minister, a significant number of party members appear ready to vote against Jean Chrétien in a leadership review next year. The split in the Liberal camp was highlighted this spring when Paul Martin, one of the main contenders to replace the PM, was dismissed from Cabinet. The battle for the heart and mind of the party is now being hotly fought across the country. Late in the summer the Prime Minister declared that he would not retire before February 2004. The party and nation now await a long battle for the leadership of the Liberal Party.
