Shameless fundraising plug appeal (for the Liberals, not me)

I saw this story last night over at Steve’s place, where even he was impressed with the turnout and the welcome amount of money raised for the Dion fundraiser in Montreal.

Do you want to help boost that even more, Liberal and wanna-be Liberal members? Do you want to show that members of the Liberal Party of Canada are able to donate just as well as their Cons. counterparts? Want to help bring in more grassroots/netroots money and wean the Liberal Party off its corporate donations, which no longer works as a fundraising tool in this new era of capping donations from companies, corporations, etc?

More importantly, do you want to help boost the coffers of our party to make it a fairer fight for next election, when we are running against the most neo-conservative, radical, reactionary, ultra-partisan Conservative government in Canadian history? Do you want to help make sure their reign of error is ended after the next election?

Donate to the Victory Fund then.

    Corporate / Federal Reserve stooges, or old Canadian Aristocracy stooges… such a tough decision.

    Blue or Red tie, the same SPP, the same Amero, the same cameras and biometeric chips.

    Really, shame on you both.

    Any idea when that election might happen, Scott? Second, if this government is as bad as you say, why should I give money to a party that is propping it up?

  • Yawn, the delirious after-taste of the CON koolaide just kicked in. Someone tuck ol’ Kolin in before he creases his tinfoil, eh.

    Real progressives???

    Is that what you call yourselves?

    Its nice to have a title when you are losing.

    Conservatism is reclaiming Liberal Canada and its about bloody time…

    So if we all donate our hard-saved pennies now, and Dion’s team still does NOT win, do they PROMISE to stand up for us regular folk in the NEXT minority Parliament? Or will they potentially sit on their arses for more months or years while Harper ravages the rest of us again? Bit of a tough sell for real progressives, no?

    Dion couldnt raise a stink in Winnipeg. He is about to lose his remaining two seats.

    Former Blue Bomber Trevor Kennerd will fortunately rid us of the living dead Anita Neville, and former police officer Shelley Glover will roll over the unimpressive Ray Simard.

    Tina Keeper will be in tight against a new NDP candidate in Churchill which could shut the Liberals out in Manitoba.

    I cant wait. No more Libs in MB!

    If Ralphie Three Budgets loses in Wascana no Libs for 1500kms.

  • ” you’ll win over a lot of people this way…very persuasive.”

    I guess you missed the part where I don’t really care about “winning you over”. You revealed yourself, whatever.

    if Dion did a cross-country “retire my debt” tour, it would be paid off in no time. Talk is cheap

    talk sure is cheap Steve.

    wonderful chatting with you, good way to end a discussion too, you’ll win over a lot of people this way…very persuasive.

  • “Care to explain why Dion still has a massive leadership debt? Deadline of June 7th is getitng pretty close.”

    Well, now you reveal yourself. From everything I’ve heard, Dion really didn’t do much to retire his debt, he was focused on other things. I don’t think it much of a statement on anything, nor do I think he will have any trouble paying it off. Let’s keep it real, if Dion did a cross-country “retire my debt” tour, it would be paid off in no time. Talk is cheap, so as an example, Dion gave the party the MAXIMUM in the last quarter, money, if he was consumed, could have been used to pay off his debt.

    As Scott himself said “even” I was impressed with the fundraising, which should at least say my reaction isn’t some kneejerk partisan opinion. It’s impressive, and you’re just trying to poke holes, because of your own bias. Fini.

    Hey Scott;
    I’m doing $25 a month right now and occasional ticketed fundraising events. I’m just about at my budget limit with all the other charities I’m supporting.

    BUT I’ll challenge anyone who isn’t giving yet to get on board. My salary is only in the mid-30’s, if you’re making more than me than maybe you should be contributing more than me!

    Let’s help Dion make a fairer, greener, richer Canada, NOW!

    actually Steve if you do see a Conservative FUNDRAISER single event held in Calgary or another solidly Conservative area it means the solid territory is still supportive and that’s normal.

    Oh and one other note, I’ll bet you right here and now all 800 of those guest were not paying partons. Been to many political fundraising dinners myself where no tab was paid and just used to fill a room. Quite normal amongst political parties.

    Care to explain why Dion still has a massive leadership debt? Deadline of June 7th is getitng pretty close.

  • Okay, so when we see the impressive Conservative fundraising, we should just say it means nothing because a good portion comes from Calgary.

    To raise that kind of money, no matter the venue, is impressive. Period.

    Steve, I’ll fluff this off as Montreal because given the current situation of your party MTV is all you have left for donor support.

    This fundraiser was about a bunch of Montreal elite Libs. getting together and giving money to the Party (not Dion’s debt might I add which is still astronomical), I’ll be impressed if a fundraiser of this magnitude can be pulled off outside a fortress.

    If the Cons. pull these numbers in Calgary it wouldn’t be impressive either.

  • “if Stephane Dion could not pull those numbers on the island of Montreal…well that would be a bit of a worry.”

    Didn’t they have a fundraiser last year that didn’t do well? You can’t fluff this off as Montreal, it’s impressive by any measure. If it was so easy, then we wouldn’t have heard stories coming out of Quebec that the Liberal wing couldn’t afford computers and office space. In reality, this high profile fundraiser was fairly bold, because if it flopped, it would have started another round of negativity.

  • Francis

    Although the 800 guests numbers were impressive, if Stephane Dion could not pull those numbers on the island of Montreal…well that would be a bit of a worry.

    Any chance of him being able to do that in Winnipeg Scott?
