Two Stories...

...both of which the Grant Devine Fan Club will love:

OTTAWA -- Special Liberal fundraising events have so far failed to put much of a dent in the almost $4 million in debts racked up by 11 former leadership contenders.

The first event in Halifax two weeks ago -- a cocktail reception featuring Leader Stephane Dion and six of his erstwhile rivals -- attracted about 60 people who paid $250 each. After expenses, however, party insiders say the event netted only about $5,400.

$250 * 60 = $15,000. So that means there was about $10,000 in costs for a 60 person event. How hard is it to cook up some rubber chicken and have Bob Rae play a few tunes on the piano? Whoever organized this thing should not be organizing fundraisers.

2. Ways not to kick off a re-election campaign.



  • Not surprising about the fund raising.

    I received a call asking for a donation. It was a rather annoying call.

    I said no way. Dion was doing a bad job. They won't see the color of my money till they get into a election.

    Hopefully, a rash of byelections will get them going again.

  • That seems like a lot of money to feed 60 people.

  • Here, I do not actually think this is likely to have success.
