Because nothing says “I love you” like a scarf with some other dude’s name on it

Dear Dan,

While we look forward to spring, Valentine's Day is almost here to help us fend off winter's chill. If you are still looking for the right gift for your Valentine, I have a cozy red suggestion:

Make a donation of $100 or more by midnight on Saturday, February 14th, and you will receive a limited-edition red fleece scarf, embroidered with the name of my favourite Liberal Valentine [Ed note: Justin Trudeau?], to help keep you or a loved one warm until spring arrives.

Winter may be with us a while yet. Let's weather it together.

Warm regards and hope to see you in Vancouver,

Zsuzsanna Zsohar

Now, don’t get me wrong – I’ve been saying for a while there should be an online Liberal store and that the party should use swag as much as possible to encourage fundraising.

However, as part of this blog’s continuing efforts to help my readers find love, I would caution against opting to give that special someone a Michael Ignatieff scarf as their only Valentine’s Day gift.



  • A year late- and I'm not sure how much you'll agree with the guy's politics- but this might work better:

  • How about DVD copies of Dion's "Hostage" video... for two easy payments of $9.99? Or signed copies of the " Hot Air" book? lol

  • I believe you can choose whose name you would like on it...

  • Come on Dan... It's a fundraiser. You make a donation and you get something in return. They have scarves left over from the leadership.

    It's not that big a deal.

  • I miss my Dion scarf and hat - they all got given away on the convention floor.

  • It's actually a good idea - just funny to spin a 2006 Iggy scarf as a Valentine's Day gift...

  • MN - If you can track me down a GK scarf, I'll trade you my Dion one...

  • As reported in the Edmonton Journal, I have a Gerard Kennedy tambourine.

    What kind of Dion swag does that get me?

  • I've got an autographed Dion ballcap...and a Gerard kennedy tambourine.

  • I got one.
    For Valentine's Day.

    I'm all for supporting the Party, but, guys? A bit of advice?
    If you're getting someone an Iggy scarf, get them some candy too.
