It’s the moment we’re waiting for.
April 2013. A competitive leadership race is coming to a close.
And hundreds of thousands of Liberals across Canada are about to cast their ballot in the most open and exciting leadership contest we’ve seen in a generation.
It’s extraordinary to know this opportunity is ahead of us. In a race where all members and any supporter who registers for free on Liberal.ca can cast a vote, anything can happen.
But if we truly want to make sure this race reaches every corner of Canada – I need your help.
So far 255 Liberals have generously contributed $20,760 to the Raise our Flag campaign. Another 863 have registered as supporters. But we need you to do your part if we’re going to reach our goal of raising $100,145 and signing up 10,145 supporters before our midnight, June 30, deadline.
Which option do you choose?
As the Conservatives abuse their majority power to close down debate and shut Canadians out of Parliament, our leadership race is our chance to open up politics to Canadians.
Our plan is to:
• Keep Liberal members and supporters informed ahead of key milestones in the campaign;
• Hold live, webcasted, interactive debates in multiple cities across Canada;
• Execute an efficient, easy, and secure voting process for all Liberals; and
• Put on a convention-style event to announce our next Leader to Canadians.
With your help, we can open up our leadership race to all eligible Canadians. We can shake things up and do politics differently.
If you prefer, give us a call at 1-800-701-7789 (9am – 5pm, ET) to donate by phone.
President, Liberal Party of Canada
