A BCer in BC: Let's get Liberal!

I'm on the ground and connected live from the bloggers room at the Liberal convention in Vancouver. And I'm ready to blog, and have some content all ready to go I'll be tossing up shortly.

First, though, I'd like to thank everyone who donated towards my delegate fees. Your support and your generosity is touching and much appreciated. I hope you'll enjoy my coverage over the next few days.

This is a beautiful convention facility here, as well it should be for $1B in construction costs. And right on the harbour, great location. Should be a good time.

I'm told we're expecting about 2000 people, a pretty good turnout given the lack of a leadership race, the economy, and the swine flu. Thusday is a light day with council of presidents meetings, including a speech by Michael, that I plan to attend. Last night I attended a number of hospitality event I'll be posting on shortly, and there's more on tap for this evening. Where, I hope, the Canucks game will be showing.

In addition to blogging I will also be Twittering, so be sure to follow me at @BCerinToronto if you're not already. Convention attendees are also being encouraged to use the hash #van09 for convention-related tweets, so follow that hash and use it for your own convention tweets.

Also, late today I'm told will be switching over to a special convention format that will be showcasing all convention related videos, pictures, blogs and tweets, so be sure to keep an eye on that too.

And watch CPAC, both online and on the Web, for ongoing coverage.

Let's get Liberal!

Welcome home BCer.

Thanks for the update. I think this is the site that seems to capture a lot of what is going on.
