  • Liberal volunteers in #Durham were busy today calling Liberal members whose membership expired in 2011 and will be expiring at the end of 2012. They used Virtual Phone Bank for the phone calls and also asked expiring members if they were interested in joining the Victory Fund.

    The project turned out very well with many members renewing their…[En afficher davantage]

      Sounds like an initiative which should be encouraged in all ridings. Too bad that there is a number of ridings where ex-MPs are assuming that an EDA’s sole purpose is to worship them. As a result no outreach or membership drives are treated as priorities. Having fewer members in a riding makes it easier to control. Shame on those ex-MP…[En afficher davantage]

    • Great initiative – thanks for the post Adam. Every riding can easily do this through Liberalist. If training is required, the Liberalist team will be happy to help. http://liberalist.liberal.ca/

      • I’m wondering if someone monitors use of Liberalist on riding by riding basis. It’s easy to see how many eBlasts were sent out in a given period by a riding; it’s trivial to compare ridings based on number of Virtual Phone Banks utilized over time.
        We can create an army of Liberalist Champions (for those who don’t know, the LL Champion…[En afficher davantage]

        • Hi Jarek,
          Yes the ”level of activity” of a riding on LIberalist is monitored and reported, on a riding by riding basis as well as with PTAs.

        • Jarek:
          In our riding there are some elements our President doesn’t like but he is still encouraging members to take the course. Our focus is primarily for use during a campaign but if you have some success stories about enrolling new members that would be good to know.

          I get my first e-lesson on Jan 15th.

          One thing I find is the Liberalist…[En afficher davantage]

          • Michael,
            You asked the question which makes me jumpy. I’m very discouraged by the latest developments in our riding (I don’t want to elaborate about it right now).
            Anyway, you can see why LL is so close to me by reading my message sent to our members prior to our last AGM: http://www.jarekwalter.com/eMessage1.pdf

            • Hi Jarek:
              Thank you so much for your reply. I have added your 2 links to my favourites.

              I have a feeling that your EDA may be a bit further along then most.

              I have been thinking of creating a topic for Liberalist in Liberal.ca where people could share ideas about Liberalist but if you don’t mind, I think it would be better if we transferred…[En afficher davantage]

            • Jarek:

              OK, I have opened up a topic ”Liberalist” under ”General Discussion” of LiberalConnect.

              If you can tune in there with your thoughts it would be great.

              I think Liberal Connect provides a better platform for sharing ideas on a continuing basis.

              • Michael: I couldn’t agree with you more – LiberalConnect is definitely a better platform for a discussion group. My concern is related to very narrow audience of LiberalConnect. If I’m not mistaken there are just above 80 members and not too much of activity.

                • Jarek:
                  There is probably a pretty narrow audience of Liberalist students and users as well.

                  All Liberalist students must also be party members so there is no cost for them to participate in LiberalConnect.

                  They can participate in both forums. Its just a matter of using Liberal Connect for one topic where it has to be able to support a long thread.

  • André Brisebois a publié un commentaire posté il y a 2 years

    #byelection FYI and especially if you’re in the #Durham region…
    ”Today, the Honourable Beverley J. Oda announced that she advised the Prime Minister two weeks ago that she will be stepping down as the Member of Parliament for the federal riding of Durham effective on July 31, 2012.”

    • You can bet a plum posting awaits Bev in the Senate or the Diplomatic Corps, and it allows the PM to rid himself of an embarrassment. Luckily for him Oda’s riding is probably one of the safer seats in the province with the last two elections voting Conservative at 54% of the votes, so it is a calculated risk.

      • Bev has caused the PMO too many problems to be appointed to the Senate, and Bev is too incompetent and lazy to work in the foreign service.

        • The Senate is full of people alot better and alot worse than Bev Oda, so she would probably fit right in. You could easily bury her in some foreign office or consulate and the public would never hear from her again. For her to quit one year into a four year mandate, there must have been something on the table.

          • Bev didn’t want to sit in the back benches, and now that she has retired, she gets $50,000 per year in a pension.

            On another note: anybody else having problems posting an update under ”What’s happening?”

            I can post comments, but not under what’s happening.

    • I knew she would be demoted but I didn’t think she’d leave politics altogether. if the resignation was really Harper’s idea, it was probably because he figures he can win that riding back in a by-election. Let’s see some more declared candidates for the leadership to put us back on the map as relevant!
