Simulcast the Next National Convention to Cities In Each Province

Rather than spend a lot of money on a "grand convention" in a central location, I would recommend using leading edge technology to "simulcast" the Convention to every province.

In doing so, we would ensure fuller participation (a lot easier for someone from Kindersley SK to carpool to Regina, than fly to St. Johns), and save a lot of the costs. Provincial "federal groups" would select venues which would suit the crowd, and we could have all the leadership candidates at one location - say, Ottawa.

Just an idea - we owe it to ourselves to ensure the fullest turnout possible, to ensure the rank-and-file party members are heard.

I wholeheartedly agree, I'd love to be able to "attend" a convention but I can't afford to travel to do it.

I think this is a wonderful idea. It removes alot of barriers to engagement. Though there needs to be activiies at the various sites that would get the membership interacting so that it would not just be a passive observation of events happening in Ottawa. I suspect this is part of your idea though you did not spell it out fully.
