"This seems to me a symbol for what our party should be"

Puffin bird championed as Liberal symbol:

"It's a noble bird because it has good family values. They stay together for 30 years,'' Ignatieff said Thursday outside a Liberal caucus retreat in the Newfoundland capital.

"They lay one egg (each year). They put their excrement in one place. They hide their excrement. ... They flap their wings very hard and they work like hell.

Of course, 30 is actually 8 in people years...

(fringe reviews coming soon, i promise)
