Letter to Liberal Faithful – We Need Your Money for an Election

Today Belinda Stronach crossed the isle and joined the liberals. This should come as no surprise. One of this author’s favorite comments about Belinda is, “the only Conservative bone in Belinda Stronach’s body comes courtesy of Peter McKay on Saturday nights”. For a long time she has been the necessary evil. She put a moderate liberal face on an otherwise morally sound party. The fact that she had no loyalty to the Conservative party was there for all to see.

In spite of this bad news, the liberals still feel an election is immanent. The sound of desperation in their most recent letter to party faithful says it all. Below is what they had to say:

Tuesday, May 17, 2005

Dear Michael,

In 48 hours – through this one pre-campaign e-blast - we need to raise $48,000 and be ready to hit the pavement and run a winning campaign.

At 10:30 this morning, Belinda Stronach crossed the floor and joined the Liberal Party of Canada stating disappointment in the Leadership of Mr. Harper over his intention to throw this budget out the window and all the important investments for Canada with it.

Prime Minister Paul Martin praised Ms. Stronach’s demonstration of leadership this morning as he appointed her to Cabinet.

In 48 hours, Stephen Harper’s Conservatives with the support of Gilles Duceppe’s Bloc Quebecois will still attempt to force Canadians into an unwanted election.

You can show your leadership right now by supporting the Liberal Party with an online donation.

If each of you donate now a gift of $48 – this goal can be easily achieved. But we need much more to mount a nation-wide campaign. Please consider $50, $75, or whatever you can afford.

Time is running out, and we can only rely on the support of caring Canadians, like you.

Thank you so much!

Mike Eizenga

Did you know…

• A $41 donation represents $41-billion that the Liberal government has committed to a 10-year investment in healthcare.

• A $62 donation is equivalent to the $62-billion in national debt that has been reduced under the Liberals.

• A $500 donation equates to $500-million that Budget 2005 invests over the next five years to fund global peace and security initiatives.

In 48 hours – Harper and Duceppe could just toss it out the window, wasting an entire year of progress. There are many Canadians like Ms. Stronach who see the only solution to a strong Canada is a Liberal solution. Tell Harper and Duceppe “no election now, pass the budget”!

Please be as generous as you can with a gift today!

Why didn't they just ask Belinda for the money.

Why are they asking for money. I'm sure there's another money laundering operation redirecting tax payers money into party coffers that Mr Justice Gomery has not unearthed.

How can any Canadian take this woman seriously? After reading her public comments re:the Liberal Party's budget just 9 days ago only to then "cross the aisle" and support the same, I see her as an unserious laughing stock.

While I disagree vehemently with my fellow Americans of the Liberal persuasion on a whole host of issues, I can still admire the ones who mean what they say and stand on principle. Slick Willie's "back door girl" seems to be ready to lay down for the highest bidder.

If George Bush and Congress were to appointed Paris Hilton to a cabinet post...no wait, that's TOO silly to imagine. That could never happen in a legitimate first world democracy, could it?

1st world democracy? Don't get confused. As far as rankings among democracies go, ol' Paul has put Canada right up there with Zimbabwe...

Canadi-anna. They won't have to ask. It'll come courtesy of the Princess' unlimited "Patriarch Fund".

Only because Father knows best.

The main reason the CPC gambled on Ms Stronach was her wealth. Now it goes to the Libs.

Belinda a Liberal? It's actually a good fit....and good riddance to her, with all the trimmings and warnings, of not letting the door hit her, on the way out.
