Team Beth, OPCYA Campaign - We get Press Releases!

As the campaign for the OPCYA draws to a close, it looks like the campaigns are putting out their final appeals to delegates before the Convention. Got this Press Release from the folks at "Team Beth" over the weekend, and thought I'd pass it on to all my OPCYA delegate readers. My two cents are included after the release.

Saturday, January 9, 2010 - Team Beth’s Actions Speak Louder than Words

Team Beth says that “Actions Speak Louder than Words” and they have the accomplishments to prove it. With the campaign to replace the current OPCYA executive drawing to a close, Team Beth is confident about their chances after securing almost 280 delegates, representing 70% of the total elected and appointed.

“We have proven that we are the only Team who has what it takes to revitalize the PC Youth movement in Ontario to be a part of a Tim Hudak victory in 2011. We have proven that we will reach out and we have proven that we will be there for the Party and that we will be there for our membership,” says Beth Corbett, Candidate for OPCYA President

Team Beth was instrumental in the founding of eight (8) brand new PC Youth Associations in four (4) different Districts across Ontario. Team Beth also had delegates appointed from over thirty (30) ridings across Ontario that do not currently have PC Youth Associations.  These included delegates appointed from ridings in ALL nine (9) of the PC Party’s Regional Districts.

"I've had the great pleasure of travelling the province, attending DSMs, town halls, campus pub nights and other PC Party events," said Beth. "Travelling to Ottawa and Kingston, all over the GTA, and heading through Guelph, Hamilton, Niagara, Welland, London, and all the way down to Windsor, I've met hundreds of PC youth that are ready to get organized and help Tim Hudak and the Ontario PC Party win the next election."

Team Beth has proven that they will be there when the PC Party needs them most. Beth and Kevin Wiener, Candidate for Membership Secretary, were extremely active on the Sue-Ann Levy by-election campaign in St. Paul’s. They were joined on the campaign trail by Grant Dingwall, Chris Chapin, Ed Woolley, Rayan Chattopadhyay,
and Nick Young.

When the Leader’s Office needed volunteers at Queen’s Park to do data entry in November, Team Beth was there. Beth organized a number of youth volunteers to help out on short notice. Beth also organized youth to support Lisa MacLeod and the PC Party during the HST hearings in December.

“It has always been about results for us. Words can only go so far if you don’t back them up with actions. Team Beth has proven that, when the rubber hits the road, we've shown that we can and will deliver,” says Grant Dingwall, Candidate for 1st VP.

Candidate for President, Ontario PC Youth Association
I've been following the OPCYA campaign from a distance, as I'm now officially too old to vote in this race. (to quote Maxwell Smart... "Missed it by THAT much.") That being said, from my observation post, Team Beth has run a stellar campaign, and would most certainly get my vote, were I able to vote.

From Press Releases, Social Media strategy, online presence, and just showing up and getting their hands dirty when there was work to be done, Team Beth did it all. Just take a look at the Press Release above... it's an excellent summary of the things I actually saw them doing throughout the campaign. Like the headline says, "Actions Speak Louder than Words". True enough... and very true in the case of these guys.

We need strong and solid leadership right now, and Team Beth is a solid bet for continuing to rebuild in preparation for the 2011 Ontario election. If you're a delegate and haven't made your decision yet, I urge you to contact the folks at Team Beth and seal the deal. With them leading the way in the OPCYA, I think we're going to be in good hands.

Hope to see you at the Convention!

    Slavery in Canada

    It is understandable to express public outrage with regard to foreign women being lured to Canada for non existent jobs, only to find that they are forced to work as prostitutes and must give at least half their money to people, who would be called pimps and criminals, in any modern society.

    There is another group of people, who lure professional people to Canada, with the offer of non existent, high paying jobs. These immigrants are also forced to work, in jobs they do not want, for organized groups, who demand they hand over half their wages.

    What do we call the second group of criminals?

    Those who lure the people are called the Canadian government.

    The people, who force them to hand over half their earnings, are called temporary agencies, churches or security companies.

    It is easy to assume that Canadian politicians have found a way to make modern day slavery acceptable. At least, until their own children become the slaves.

    I have sent the above to the Minister of Labour for Canada and all the party leaders.
