Vancouver Deserves The Liberal Leadership Convention - Part 5

... Because we'd only be deciding to keep it here...

Join the Facebook Group "Vancouver Deserves The Liberal Leadership Convention", if you want to help us grow the party in the West...

Some people have argued "cost" as a factor in "centralizing" a leadership convention... It's funny that we didn't consider that when we decided on Vancouver for the May "Policy" Convention. Are we saying we care less about Policy? Let's not make THAT an issue...

As far as the "cost" factor, it may cost SOME delegates a little more, but they may save that in hotel costs. It may cost the party a little more in rebates, but how much value do you give party growth? How much is each new member worth to us? Coming from a business background, I can tell you that there is a cost to acquiring "new customers", and more costs associated with keeping them, but there IS a cost, and there are the obvious benefits of a bigger pool of members. If we are serious about growing this party, let's put our money where our mouths are, and work towards it...

Let's keep the next Liberal Convention in Vancouver...

Join our Facebook group, and send the "powers that be" a strong message. This party is member-driven, and HAS to be if it is to survive as a viable entity...

Keep the next Federal Liberal Convention in Vancouver!
