Dear Saanich-Gulf Islands Catch 22 Campaign supporters,
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 have now shifted into the endorsement process and the campaign team is now making recommendations to our local members and groups.
We have had successful endorsement meetings in Ottawa and Vancouver this week and have endorsed our first 4 candidates. As we are unable to organize in-person meetings in all the target ridings, we are using our online groups to organize the discussions and decision making. There will be a (more or less) 48 hour discussion period at which time a final decision will be made 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 Saanich-Gulf Islands, the Catch 22 Campaign team is recommending that we endorse Elizabeth May, Green Party, as the candidate with the only chance to defeat Conservative Hon. Gary Lunn. If you want to participate in the discussion and decision-making, you will need to join the online group. For SGI, it is http://catch22campaign.ca/group/saanichgulfislands.
Please keep all discussion on this endorsement recommendation in this discussion thread. The discussion will be moderated by campaign team member Masrour Zoghi.
Discussion on the SGI endorsement will end April 2 @ noon Pacific time.
