The Federal Liberals have swung into town to assist the handicapped provincial liberals out of their self-made, and never ending, sand trap!
Interim Liberal Leader Bob Rae is making the summer BBQ circuit in the province.
The former Ontario NDP Premier is assisting the local grits raise some cash at the first of two fundraising golf tournaments in aid of the provincial party.
The Liberal Cup is being played at the Bally Hally Golf Course on Lggy Bay Road today. If you are not a golfer, you can pay $40 to attend the dinner and take in Rae’s inspirational speech!
Hats off to the federal third party for continuing to use it’s declining star power to help the local grit’s keep the lights on. The party has been mired in debt since loosing power to the William’s Progressive Conservatives in 2003.
Earlier this year, future Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau was the keynote speaker at a fundraiser for the baby grits. The $250 a ticket dinner raised some big cash for the struggling party.
Now if only they could clean house, up at the Confederation Building. Shed the nepotism, the lazy, the double dippers, the PC’s and hanger-on’s and start earning back the respect of disillusioned supporters.
That would be real renewal!
The type of stuff you might reward with a cheque and a vote!
