Moving Forward Together Means No Hands Left Behind

I find this offensive.

Canadians who most need mittens don't have the money to buy them.  Any party that is committed to helping those in need show it by putting their money where there mouth is.

When I first saw the headline, I assumed it was for a charitable giving program - donate and XX amount of money would go to mittens for those in need.

Boy, was I wrong.

The LPC has done a masterful job of cribbing from the CPC's fundraising book.  I worry about what it's cost them in terms of priorities.

“The Liberal Party of Canada is committed to keeping Canadians’ hands warm, and snug this winter.
“That’s why, for the next 2 days only, everyone who donates $100 (just $25 after your tax credit), or more, will receive a special thank you gift: me!
“Canadians are suffering enough under Conservative rule. There is no reason they should endure frostbite too.
“Don’t wait -- warm up now!”
(That’s just 75 cents after your tax credit!)


Donor name: Craig
Mittens fundraising drive status: PENDING
Will Craig’s hands be cold this winter: Yes. Brrrr!
(That’s just 75 cents after your tax credit!)
Canadians want a better government -- that’s what our movement is all about -- but we can’t deliver change without you, Craig.
