Liberal Convention

The Liberals will try to be the leaders of tomorrow that’s if the Conservatives leave Canada intact.

The Liberals will start rebuilding their party today at http://convention.liberal.ca

Is it time for one of your patented Conservative Party booster threads already?

With there being only 4 or 5 Liberal MPs these days, the party could hold the whole convention in a mini van and save all kinds of money... That style of fiscal responsibility would say volumes in terms of their fiscal policy.

BTW - does Chucky Cheese have a drive thru window?

Thats rich when talking about the party that invented the country's debt, presided with governments that took regional alienation to all time highs, was in office during 2 referendums on Quebec sovereignty and also sent troops out into Canadian streets under the auspices of the War Measures Act. The Conservatives have their own problems but lets not pretend they are so much worse than "Canada's Natural Governing Party"...

I don't think the Liberal party has the war chest required for such an expensive endevour. I think they will be sharing a 10 pack of timbits at a designated Tim Horton's.

The speeches are really good at the Liberal convention a lot better than the Conservative ones.

That's only because the Liberals have far better joke writers.

Interesting Liberals have have better joke writers can it be that Conservatives are the joke?

A lot of good material on the MPs like MacKay and Clement and Riatt and lots more.

This Hour Has 22 Minutes A comedy TV group are thankful for the Conservatives for providing lots of good material.

Nah, just great fodder.

There's something to be said for situation comedies.

This is true. Interestingly, they were formed and rose to their pinnacle during the Liberal reign.

Do you have a clown car you could loan them? The Liberal Party includes more than just MP's...

I'll get in touch with the local Kinsman lodge... They have all those great little cars that they use during the Stampede Parade... I figure that the Lib party might only need 2 or 3

Is there enough room in the trunk for their floppy shoes and squeaky noses?

I was thinking a 1988 dodge minivan would hold the entire convention. If you can still find one. Maybe Red Green has a spare. And a roll or two of duct tape to hold the party together.

With the transmission and head gasket problems those vans are famous for, it would be quite ironically symbolic.

Would you mind if one of the Lib MPs wore the nose and shoes?... No reason why we can fit one more in the trunk..

The Liberals will try to be the leaders of tomorrow ? Considering the doldrums they presently find themselves in they might want to shoot for a later date.

If Rae hadn't been shot in the arse by a Liberal finance minister, he'd be a great leader ... but then again, he probably would have stayed on as Ontario NDP's grand poobah

As I recall Rae handed in his walking papers after Svend Robinson started making unfounded accusations against Israel in regard to the so called "Jenin Massacre."

I think he even wrote an open letter saying that the NDP no longer represented his values.

I'll see if I can track down that open letter.

Haven't found the letter yet, but here's a snippit from Wiki. I know it's Wiki, but I'm still looking.

Quote:

"Parting Company with the NDP", Rae strongly criticized what he perceived as a bias against Israel in the federal party, and also criticized the NDP for rejecting Tony Blair's Third Way socialism and for refusing to accept globalization and open markets. He suggested that the party's economic policies were insufficient for the 21st century, and that the party as a whole was no longer "worthy of support".

You don't have to prove anything to me. I know there were some mutual hard feelings between Rae and the party. Whether he walked away of his own accord or was asked to do so doesn't really matter.

There's a surprising number of them out today. I was just at the Rideau Centre. At least half the people there are Liberals. They're easily spotted with their red shirts, bags, ties and shirts.

Some Quebec firm with party connections. No open tender.
