What NOT to do as a PTA President

Talk to the Toronto Star at length about how the Leadership race and I quote
"I gotta tell you, there's very little interest out here, apart from a few diehard Liberals."

- In a province where the Liberal membership has tripled over the course of the race? That sounds pretty exciting to me.

  • Membership signups aside, talking to my friends back in rural BC I've heard much the same. They're tired and not paying that close attention right now. They're not seeking out information on the candidates, they're waiting for the candidates to come to them. They're waiting until closer to September to make up their minds on who to support.

  • I remember reading Jean Chretien's auto biography, that he didn't mind people being on the other side, that what he hated most was the undeclared.

    People in Rural ridings with a low membership base have the luxury of waiting to choose whom they will support.

    However, they need to watch to make sure they are not in a riding where one leadership candidate has signed up a plethora of members.

    So in both situations, waiting is better for people in low membership ridings. You get to see whom is likely to garner the most support in the riding, and if your prefered candidate will be able to get you to Montreal with a delegate spot.
