The Big Red Think...Who Gets to Go?
The Liberals' Big Red Thinkers Conference is set to take place in January 2010 in Montreal.
It's rumoured that only 200 Liberals will be "invited" to the event. Also rumoured is that an additional 200 non-liberals will be invited.
A couple or three questions come to mind.
1. Who are these elite 200, and where have they been thinking for the past few years.
2. WHO CHOOSES THE ELITE 200??? This is possibly the most important question.
3. What was the purpose of the Non-Leadership/Policy Convention, the Renewal Committee and the Change Commission and the Red Ribbon Report and, and and and..... if the engagement of the grassroots wasn't enough to THINK about?
4. How much is this thinkers conference? And who pays? Especially since Ontario Liberals have to pay, three weeks later, to attend their waaaaaaay, long overdue AGM in Windsor?
Anyway, that's my thinking about the thinkers. Feel free to think about it and think your thoughts in writing here.
