For the past year, the Catch 22 Campaign has been identifying vulnerable Conservative ridings, networking, building our base and laying the groundwork for the election. We are now moving forward with making specific endorsements through a process that includes local supporters in target ridings.
We had successful endorsement meetings in Ottawa and Vancouver last week. We also pioneered our first online endorsement discussion in Saanich-Gulf Islands. We have now endorsed our first 6 candidates. We are using our online groups to organize the discussions and decision making. After the discussion period closes, we will make a final decision on the riding endorsement.
We will be rolling out a few recommendations per day with an eye to wrapping up the process on April 8 or 9. By that time we will have also identified a number of vulnerable opposition ridings and will compile the Catch 22 Voters’ Guide for our target ridings.
In Fredericton, the Catch 22 Campaign team is recommending that we endorse Randy McKeen, from the Liberal Party as the candidate with the only chance to defeat Conservative Keith Ashfield. If you want to participate in the discussion and decision-making, you will need to join this online group.
Discussion on the Fredericton endorsement will end on April 6 at 11:00 p.m. local time.
