Dear Catch 22 team,
One suggestion I would make next time is to have a way for people to actually reach someone and communicate with them about how they can help. I spent a lot of time going through the website, trying in vain to find a phone number or email address so I could talk to an actual person and find out how I could help in some way. I live in a safe riding (Olivia Chow's), but I was prepared to canvass or make phone calls or do something for other ridings.
I had already passed along your information to anyone I know who is eligible to vote in Canada, but after that I felt helpless. I posted something to the effect that I wanted to volunteer, but to no avail. All that got me was some weird response from someone who wanted to start a relationship with me! It was very frustrating. Maybe I just don't understand how to use them, but to my mind facebook and twitter have their limitations, and sometimes good old-0ofashioned tools like telephone and email are more effective.
Thanks anyway for trying. It's so discouraging that they managed to bully the country into getting their majority, but I was happy to know that there were people out there trying to organize to prevent it. Again, maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I wonder how much presence you had on old-school media like radio and newspapers. I didn't catch any of it.
We're stuck now for 4 years, but if you think you'll be gearing up for other similar campaigns, feel free to keep my contact info.
