Change isn't just a word to be used to convince you what needs to be done, it is an action that moves us and our country towards a better idea, towards a better vision for Canada.
Change does not exist outside of us, but is exhibited by us. Canada does not only need a strong leader, it needs a strong Canada.
Stephen Harper has led for his own benefit, for his own ambition. Canadians have been made his followers and not his supporters. Canadians have been deprived of their own value by a Prime Minister that only cares about his own. Canadians need change.
It is time for the people of our great country to recognize that change will not come from this Prime Minister, change will not come from this government, change will come only from those Canadians who choose to lead, who choose to act.
And as Liberals, as members of this Party, we have an opportunity to rise up, to stand up to this conceited and authoritative government and offer Canadians the example of leadership. The example of change.
Gerard Kennedy is that change.
