  • I notice that Lennard put up a facebook note and Rocco Rossi "likes" it. Does Rossi endorse Lennard or just Lennard's position against the Young Liberal amendment of One Member One Vote?

  • I think it's safe to say you can like someone's facebook link without formally endorsing them...

  • Yeah Rossi was probably just saying he didn't like the YLC amendment like John was saying.

    Dan what's your view on the YLC amednment? Did you support it last time?

    Time to get off the fence, lol

  • Dumb and dumber = Kukucha v Fridhandler

  • I'm frankly surprised that John Lennard is running against an amendment that would ensure the youth remain a powerful force in the party. This is coming from a guy who wrote a scathing blog post a few months back attacking the renewal committee for not having youth representation on it. Now he is ready to get rid of a guarunteed say for Young Liberals in determining the party leadership.. what gives? Is the reason Rossi "likes" John's facebook post because John is now doing Rocco's bidding?

  • Monika Drobnicki - YLC Women's Rep, Acclaimed

    Chad Cowie - YLC Aboriginal Rep, Acclaimed

  • James Houston - YLC constitutional and legal affairs rep

  • John Lennard does not stand against the YLC amendment to OMOV. He has stated that, if the amendment is not included, he will still support OMOV.

    I've met far too many young Liberals who cannot afford to go to the Biennial Convention. OMOV, with or without this YLC amendment, will allow the youth voice to be heard whether they have over $1000 or not.
