Hey folks, win a chat with Iggy
Who dreams this stuff up? I mean, it's a cute idea, but . . .
Alf Apps, president of the federal Liberals, is offering Canadians a chance to see Leader Michael Ignatieff this summer. It's a longshot, but if you don't enter, you can't win. As Apps says in a recent email:
With Parliament having recessed for the summer, the immediate threat of an election has faded, but the Liberal Party still has work to do to make sure it is ready when the time does come. Throughout the summer, Michael Ignatieff will be traveling all across Canada, meeting with Canadians and sharing his vision for the future of our country.
Would you like for one of those meetings to be with you? We are planning two special stops on the tour, and we¹d like to give you a chance to win one of them for your riding. And all you need to do is become a member of the Liberal Party of Canada.
If you join on-line before Canada Day, you¹ll be entered in a draw for one of the two special visits. If your name is chosen, a visit to your riding will be added to the Leader¹s itinerary, and the agenda for that visit will include an opportunity for you to sit down in a private meeting with Michael a unique opportunity for you to share your ideas for the future of the Liberal Party and for Canada.
The greater our numbers, the more effectively we can make a difference and get our great country back on track. Help us make Canada better. Join the Liberal Party today.
President, Liberal Party of Canada
Let me get this straight. Two ridings get a special visit. Two? One person gets a private meeting? That's the prize? Let's hope Iggy's people at least provide a decent picnic basket.
I suppose other Liberal ridings get not-so-special visits - or none at all.
