Across the country as back to school season swung into full gear students were greeted by more than just teachers and homework. Young Liberals of Canada were there too.
At University Frosh Fairs, Clubs Days, every event we could go to – we went. Whether it was McGill’s Streetfest or UBC’s Imagine Day, our local young liberal clubs were there, front and centre to let students know about our Party; about becoming a Supporter; and about being a Young Liberal.
It says a lot about the strength of our volunteer network we’ve been able to make this happen, and it’s been thanks to our volunteers we’ve been able to get such amazing results.
McMaster became the first campus club to reach 500 supporter sign-ups, at UBC they reached 270 after several hours. Queens is at over 300, UofT at 370, Carleton at 219, uOttawa at 150, Brock at 99… The list goes on and on.
Since early September we have signed up 4,000 new supporters!
But, this isn’t the end. We still have a long way to go – and we’ve got more conversations to start too.
We kick-started a cross-Canada-campus speakers tour last week. Our Liberal caucus is hitting the road so that we can hold events right across the country. We’re calling it the Choose your Canada tour.
So students, buckle up. School is in – and so is the Liberal Party of Canada.
