When the former Chief economist of the World Bank warns that humanity may lose, because of climate change, a fifth of its collective wealth over the next decades, I know that we Canadians are listening. The problem is that we have a Prime Minister who is not listening.
Dion quotes
Will Canada be a leader in the 21st Century? Will we help human kind reconcile with the planet? I know Canada can do it. The only thing that is lacking is the political will.
Dion
We have changed the bedroom and the exercise room. My successor, maybe Mr. Harper will have the, the opportunity to lose his overweight now because we have this exercise room.




Dion Stephane quotes
(Liberals) know that good social policy is good economic policy.
Dion Stephane
We will all need to be members of Team Canada. And to pull together such a team, the Liberal Party is second to none. We are the party of the Charter of Rights, the Official Languages Act, multiculturalism, aboriginal rights. We must bring down any, and all, barriers that prevent women, young people, aboriginals, new Canadians, visible minorities from offering their full potential to this great country.
Stephane Dion quotes
We are the Party that brought the first two pillars together – economic prosperity and social justice.
Stephane Dion
Culture! There is more culture in a bowl of yogurt than in this Conservative government!
Dion Stephane quotes
No more blocs, enough blockages! I will always defend with conviction and clarity the rights that we Quebecers have on our entire country: Canada. We are proud Quebecers, proud Canadians, and we are right to not choose between these two wonderful identities.
Dion
Do you think it's easy to make priorities?
Dion Stephane
The main issue of the century, the one on which all others depend, is the junction between the economy and the environment. In other words, no less than the reconciliation between the people and the planet.
Stephane Dion
I think it's the worst of two worlds because in the current system you choose the best person I'm not sure the prime minister chose the best person. And he cannot claim that it's a democratic process. Really, it's an election that came a very long time ago.




Stephane Dion quotes
I say that these choices are not only about a just society, they make for smart economics too. That’s the Liberal way to success in the sustainable economy.
Stephane Dion
Canada has a Prime Minister who thinks that the United States is not only our ally, but also our model.
Dion quotes
To win, we must offer our own project to Canadians, a generous and ambitious vision that is in stark contrast to Mr. Harper’s selfish and narrow idea of Canada.
Dion Stephane
To succeed, we need a federation where, more than ever, all levels of government work together, respecting each other’s jurisdictions. Above all, we need a Canada more united than ever. A Canada where we Quebecers, with our own culture, our own talents, our own potential, will work hand in hand with other Canadians. Quebecers, Canada belongs to all of us, in its entirety. It is here together that we realize our dreams, our aspirations, our ambitions for the world.
Dion Stephane quotes
Liberals - we need to go back to power as soon as possible!
Stephane Dion
This is unfair! (In response to Michael Ignatieff's criticism of his environmental record: "We didn't get it done")
Stephane Dion quotes
I call it the Three Pillar Approach: weaving together, better than any other country in the world, economic prosperity, social justice and environmental sustainability.
Stephane Dion
My fellow liberals, the world needs Canada. Under my leadership, Canada will not fail the world.
Dion Stephane
The NDP do not understand the market economy. The Conservatives do not understand social justice. But we Liberals have always championed both.
