The Liberal Party Convention 2014

Since the federal Conservative party is fracturing and won't survive the 2015 election if they don't cancel it because of their election reforms bill, look at the Liberal convention or the new government in waiting to fix the damage that the Conservatives did.

Gonna be a long wait if you expect anyone to vote for shiny pony.
PS don't quit your day job since you will never make it as a comedian and will die of old age before there will be a Liberal government to appoint you to your desired patronage job.

Well, I think wifey's planning on having a headache that day and I am busy widgeting my fixings that day so I guess we'll just have to bite the bullet and pass on the invite.

Too bad Les... I'd bet that Justin would want to know what is your favorite virtue; maybe what are the big issues facing men that live in the Kootenays.

Trudeau is pretty sensitive that way

If your lucky you may get invited to a lot more than that.

I got an email from Justin's backroom boys asking if I was interested in being one of the " Start-up team members" for one of the new Federal ridings that are being created.
I briefly considered doing the Fifth Columnist thing but my wife got all twitchy on me and so I passed.

"The retrospective press conference with the leader at the end of a political convention is a staple event, a tradition as entrenched as hospitality suites, ill-advised assignations and hang-overs.
But to the great annoyance of journalists covering the Liberal biennial convention in Montreal this weekend, leader Justin Trudeau did not meet the press when the program wrapped on Sunday afternoon.
Instead, Trudeau gave one-on-one interviews to the CBC, Global and CTV.
An interview request from parliamentary channel CPAC, which covered the entire four-day confab and has interviewed party leaders at nearly every convention in memory, was rejected.
The communications shutdown contrasts with Trudeau’s repeated references to improving transparency and accountability in government and jabs at the near-total inaccessibility of the current prime minister.
And for a leader who faces increasing criticism from opponents over an apparent lack of policy bona fides, the decision by Trudeau’s advisors to keep him under wraps after a policy convention seemed odder still.
Frustrated, several journalists attempted to scrum Trudeau on Sunday when he arrived in the main plenary hall to hear the debate on the policy resolution that would change the party’s constitution to exclude senators from the Liberal caucus.
In the bizarre encounter, reporters tried to get Trudeau to say just something — anything — as he took his seat in the front row next to new party president Anna Gainey and her predecessor, Mike Crawley."

It will be interesting to see later what election results will be and then compare notes with all that have been said before. If the Liberals take power it will be like the last change we had , out of frustration of the last party in power.

The planners of this convention wanted no media attention so they scheduled it during the Olympics.

Blazing cat fur.....gives a whole new meaning to "honey, can you put the cat out".

They didn't want media coverage doesn't mean they didn't get it.

You're too short, that one went right over your head.

The Libs were accusing the Tories of planning their budget during Sochi to avoid scrutiny......and turnabout is fair play.

I'd try to hide that joke of a budget anyway I could too.

That sadly seems to be the trend in Canadian politics and has been for decades. People go for change for change's sake rather than looking at what they are changing to.

Like it matters which puppet will head the corporatocracy. It is all just an illusion that you have a choice.
