Liberal Party of Canada postpones convention
I just received an email from Liberal Party President Alf Apps letting me know June’s convention has been postponed, without any further explanation.
Apps has this to say:
As we work together to win this election, the Liberal Party of Canada is postponing the 2011 Biennial Convention, which had been scheduled for June 17-18 in Ottawa. The good news is that a new date will be set shortly, as per our constitution, to take place within six months of the original date. Stay tuned for more updates.
That is ridiculous.
Apps has now provided the Conservatives, the NDP and the media with an opportunity to start the week off with claims that:
A) The Liberal Party is broke and can’t afford a convention; or
B) The Liberal Party believes that Ignatieff is going to lose, and the next convention will be a leadership convention.
Either way, dumb, dumb, dumb. Apps can’t be replaced soon enough.
