Toronto Centre Federal Riding Assoc. invites you to…
Three Liberals who were at the centre of political affairs at the height of the party’s progressive nation building reflect on their experience and on current rebuilding challenges. James Coutts and Patrick Gossage were senior members of Pierre Trudeau’s administration and Richard O’Hagan worked for Prime Minister Lester Pearson. They will take part in a panel discussion moderated by CBC TV personality and journalist Gill Deacon.
These are crucial times – not only for the Liberal Party but for Canada. We’re fortunate to have the unique perspective of Coutts, Gossage and O’Hagan.
We will also hear about current initiatives from two senior members of the federal party – The National President Michael Crawley , The National Membership Secretary Matthew Certosimo. This Q and A is your chance to ask questions about the road ahead.
The entire session is being hosted by Grant Gordon, past Federal Candidate for Toronto Danforth in the recent March 19th, 2012 campaign.

|Are you Orange or Red? Here’s a quick look at what Liberals have accomplished as a government in Ottawa, compared to what the NDP has accomplished. On March 19 vote for Grant Gordon.|
2,126 hearts on the Valentine Wall. $151,266 raised. And one Liberal team in Toronto-Danforth that is fired up like you wouldn’t believe.
That’s the Liberal movement at work – your movement, Canada’s movement.
You’ve just proven that Liberals are united, determined, and ready to rally behind our common cause – no matter where we live in this great land. But your support doesn’t need to stop with the success of the Take Toronto-Danforth Campaign.
In fact, nothing sends a stronger message that Liberals will fight hardest for the people of Toronto-Danforth, then you getting involved.
No matter where you live in Canada, you should know we’re ready to run the most sophisticated campaign in Canadian political history. And part of that effort involves harnessing supporters across the country to amplify our message, including:
Building online relationships with major Toronto social media personalities who may be receptive to the Liberal message; and
Commenting online on media articles about the Toronto-Danforth campaign to correct falsehoods and spread our message;
But if you do live in the Toronto area, you should know we need volunteers with an extraordinary variety of talents and relationships that possibly only you possess, including:
Language abilities in Mandarin, Cantonese, Greek, Italian, Urdu, Arabic, Farsi, Hindi, Punjabi, or Vietnamese;
Ties to local mainstream, multicultural and electronic media or major Toronto social media personalities who may be receptive to the Liberal message;
Ties to local multicultural community associations or church and religious groups;
Ties to local business organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, or social groups like Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs;
Ties to bowling, pool, or hockey leagues and other sports teams; and
Knowledge of any upcoming local events that we should attend, from bake sales and bazaars to festivals and major gatherings.
If you can help with any of the above, please email Volunteer Coordinator Julie Cousins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You should also email email@example.com if you can help with traditional campaign activities, including:
Making phone calls;
Delivering campaign literature to people’s houses;
Doing data-entry; and
Getting out the vote on election day including hosting, running, or working out of a home centre.
If there’s one message we want to share above all, it’s this: That Liberal candidate Grant Gordon is the true local candidate best able to fight for jobs, pensions and opportunity for the people of Toronto-Danforth.
So please repeat this message every chance you get, on Twitter, on Facebook and whenever you talk to friends, family and neighbours about the campaign in Toronto-Danforth.
We’re in this together – and together we can win.
