It sure can't hurt.

The Liberals need a few years in the political wilderness to sort themselves out.

If they can concentrate on establishing a foundation of principles, as opposed to just a lust for power, as their reason d'etre, they might become a worthwhile force in Canadian politics, instead of just a force.
Bloody hell, the Conservatives will ya just run the country in the here and now and stop fretting over the future.
