Question Time! “Warren, are you going to the Liberal convention thing?”


“Quite a few of you have asked me this, and God knows why. But, no.

One, I’m too busy at work and with my kids.

Two, I don’t understand the Liberal party’s insistence on having conventions in the dead of winter, in the coldest parts of the country. It’s stupid.

Three, one of Trudeau’s senior advisers contacted a campaign with which I may or may not be associated, and suggested there would be…consequences. Apparently they were upset about the column I wrote about the move they made in the Senate. I am not making this up.

Good thing I don’t write a politics column in the biggest newspaper chain in the country, etc.”

    Funny…..I was just going to email you to ask you this question…..and lo…..there is the answer……my next question, however, would be, if you were attending, who would you support for party president, and why…..

    Many years ago, I attended a convention of ahem, of a former party in March in Montreal(here is the agenda from said convention….http://www.thehammer.ca/content/view.php?news=2005-03-17)……and at that time, the temperature was relatively balmy, I thought……
    Never having been to Montreal before, I was impressed with the hospitality of the city, the nightlife, and the fact that it is impossible to get a bad meal in the city…..and I vowed I would visit again……

    When I told a friend I was going to Montreal in February she gave a succinct response, “You should be going to Mexico instead”.
