While some choose to mock his entirely comfortable-looking summer wear because, well I have no idea why except maybe pettiness, the recent video put out by Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has made a big announcement:
That is right, over a $1-million has been raised since Trudeau became leader... which was less than a month ago. That is a helluva lot of money for us, almost matching what some of our regular quarterly fundraising results are. That means in this quarter we could double our usual numbers, and suffice to say I think we know why. If I were to guess, by the end of this quarter we'll hit around the $3-million mark, which should put us quite a bit ahead of the NDP who continue to lag behind us in fundraising.
It still isn't enough, mind you, as the Conservatives continue to outspend us by at least 2-to-1, if not more. But this is a very good start indeed for our new leader, who I'm not afraid to say is an absolute cash cow. Hopefully we can keep up a consistent $2.5-million or more coming in, if we do then we know we've got a winner on our hands, not just a false messiah.
