Some Liberal wits are having fun with the controversy over questionable donations to Joe Volpe's campaign -- specifically the allegations that his team has skirted financing limits by dividing up big-dollar contributions into $5,400 chunks, then passed them off as individual contributions among members of a family -- family members as young as teen-agers. A new website, youthforvolpe.ca, tells young people how they can get involved in Volpe's campaign. Among the suggestions:
The joke website even includes a form to fill out credit-card information, with instructions to check whether this is "mommy's" or "daddy's" credit card.
Skip going to university. A year of university costs upwards of $5,400, which would be better spent on Joe’s campaign. Have more than $5,400 to give? No problem: just give the money to a friend or family member who's as commited to Joe's campaign as you are. Want to support Joe, but don't know if you can? Talk to your parents, you might have already done your part!
