Ball wants to be Liberal leader – permanently

This isn’t just an interim leadership job for newly-minted Liberal leader Dwight Ball: he has already stated that he will run for the top position whenever the party calls its leadership convention. Whenever that happens, Ball says he will be there. “It is my intention to be a candidate in the leadership convention and certainly my plan to lead this party into the next general election,” he told the CBC. “As a businessman I know the burden that debt can have on an organization and my first priority as Liberal leader will be to get debt reduction to a managable level,” Ball said.
