Before this leadership race begins in earnest...

…and we begin being bombarded by requests to get involved in this race or support one candidate or another, I’d like to encourage everyone to drop a few dollars, whatever you can spare, to the candidates from the last leadership race that are not running again and are still carrying debt.

Myself, I’ve just made small donations to Martha Hall Findlay, Gerard Kennedy and Stephane Dion to help them retire their leadership debts. For Stephane particularly, I think it would be great if everyone could chip-in a few dollars to help our outgoing leader retire his leadership debt.

Remember, after the tax rebate it practically costs you peanuts. Please give what you can to the past leadership candidate/s of your choice.

PS. Don't forget Scott Brison, Hedy Fry and Ken Dryden too.

What about Ken?

Also... be very careful about making the donations in a time period where they won't overlap with any delegate fees you'll be paying to go to Vancouver. I think calendar year is the difference, so the donations should come during 2008, but it would be worth checking.

Donations to leadership candidates are separate from those to the party (or convention fees). Although it may take some looking into the rules to figure out exactly.
