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 Oakville, the Catch 22 Campaign team is recommending that we endorse Max Khan, from the Liberal Party as the candidate with the only chance to defeat Conservative Terence Young . If you want to participate in the discussion and decision-making, you will need to join this online group.
Discussion on the Oakville endorsement will end on April 5 at 11:00 p.m. local time.
I fully agree that Max Khan should get the endorsement. He is a well and favourably known Councilor as well as a practicing lawyer. Liberal party has won the riding every time but one since 1993. It is well organized, has experienced people in the campaign and is well financed. Max Khan will defeat the Conservative with the help of all opposition parties in the riding. Help Catch 22 Conservatives!!!!
In reading the Oakville Beaver it seems the paper is leaning Conservative. One example is their on-line poll "Do you want a majority or minority government" and also an article from a Conservative candidates office quoting her as "Expecting a Majority". Catch 22 members and Liberal supporters need to hammer this newspaper with letters to the editor and in the Opinion Columns.
Shame on us if we don't stop these cheating dirtbags from getting elected here again.
