Dried up grassroots?

The BC Liberal Convention in Penticton in early November has not yet sold out. Many delegates missed the early bird deadline last week.

At least the BC Liberals should be able to get their entire caucus over to Pentiction since the fall session has been cancelled. Maybe all the MLAs in attendance will supplement the convention mobilization machines of future leadership hopefuls Christy Clark, Rich Coleman, Kevin Falcon, Colin Hansen, and Carole Taylor.

A bit early for speculation. But
Taylor would be the worst choice, followed by Hansen.

November is a stupid time for a convention since snow will most likely fall on the high passes up there and many Liberals may be driving there on cheap all season tires.

Who would go to a Convention that doesn't carry any weight and is nothing more than a jumping up and down in support of Gordon Campbell
event, orchastrated by Martyn Brown.

As for the fall session being cancelled, consider that to be a broken promise. The Liberals promised two - count 'em - two
sessions.

True...... Penticton in November scares many drivers away. Should have been during the Spring or late Summer and it would have been packed.

Late Summer, the weekend or two after Labour day or even the Victoria Day weekend or the weekend after would have been would have been a good time.

Also the rains begin in November,
so makes for a miserable driving
experience.

Who is going to dip their toes in Skaha Lake, be on the beach or go tubing down the Okanagan waterway between convention events in November?
