I don't want people to think that I'm obsessed with David Orchard or anything but:
a) there's a lot of talk about the guy in Alberta
b) his continued presence in the Liberal Party kind of bugs me
Anyways, I was at the "Three Amigos" BBQ, listening to the music stylings of Misters Chase, Swann and Taylor on Saturday and this lady who is apparently friends with David Orchard was giving the hard sales pitch to everyone there to join the federal Liberals and support David. I feigned interest ("stupid Yanks", "bloody Peter MacKay"...) and chatted with her a bit while she gave me the anti-American, anti-NAFTA sales pitch. She also gave me the paper above with a phone number to call, so it appears Mr. Orchard is still gauging support. When I called the number, I got a voice message about the "Orchard for Canada" campaign.
I still suspect Orchard will support another candidate in this race (probably Dion or Rae), but it appears he's still considering a leadership bid at this point in time.
