OTTAWA —
Thousands of federal Liberals will gather online tonight for the start of a three-day national convention that promises to be downright dull compared to similar events held by the Conservative and New Democratic partiesThe COVID-19 crisis unfolding unevenly across Canada..

And that suits Liberals just fine.

They’re hoping Canadians will see a governing party focused on the serious policy issues of the day — the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, climate change, the social safety net, systemic racism — without any of the infighting or controversy that beset the Conservatives’ convention last month and that threatens to similarly dominate the NDP’s convention this weekend.

Priority policy resolutions up for debate and votes at the Liberal gathering include calls for a universal basic incomeThe most sacred pilgrimages in Hinduism, enforceable national standards for long-term care homes and a green economic recovery.
