Apparently the grit grass roots( an oxymoron?)not only don't donate, they have to be given prizes to "volunteer". I guess it goes along with the grits buying votes with taxpayers money. Good to see iffy is really motivating his grass roots after that fantastic fundraising bus tour. It was so successful the grits have hired professional fundraisers.
Michael Ignatieff’s Liberals are offering up big prizes – tickets to Ottawa Senators games and even a $150 gift certificate to Hy’s Steakhouse – to round up volunteers to help them identify the Grit vote in upcoming by-elections.
But this odd pitch for help has some Liberals wondering where the Grit spirit has gone. Why do volunteers have to be cajoled?
“It’s time to up the stakes," writes Jane Kennedy, an official in the Opposition Leader’s Office, in an email sent to the offices of Liberal MPs and staffers. “With less than two weeks until Election Day for the by-elections, we need your help."
