A Valentine’s Day That Liberals Will Never Forget!

Posted on February 15, 2012


2,126 hearts on the Valentine Wall. $151,266 raised. And one Liberal team in Toronto-Danforth that is fired up like you wouldn’t believe.

That’s the Liberal movement at work – your movement, Canada’s movement.

You’ve just proven that Liberals are united, determined, and ready to rally behind our common cause – no matter where we live in this great land. But your support doesn’t need to stop with the success of the Take Toronto-Danforth Campaign.

In fact, nothing sends a stronger message that Liberals will fight hardest for the people of Toronto-Danforth, then you getting involved.

No matter where you live in Canada, you should know we’re ready to run the most sophisticated campaign in Canadian political history. And part of that effort involves harnessing supporters across the country to amplify our message, including:

        Following, retweeting and sharing Grant Gordon’s tweets and Facebook posts; Following, retweeting and sharing our message of the day from the Toronto-Danforth Liberal riding association Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Building online relationships with major Toronto social media personalities who may be receptive to the Liberal message; and commenting online on media articles about the Toronto-Danforth campaign to correct falsehoods and spread our message; But if you do live in the Toronto area, you should know we need volunteers with an extraordinary variety of talents and relationships that possibly only you possess, including:

Language abilities in Mandarin, Cantonese, Greek, Italian, Urdu, Arabic, Farsi, Hindi, Punjabi, or Vietnamese; Ties to local mainstream, multicultural and electronic media or major Toronto social media personalities who may be receptive to the Liberal message; Ties to local multicultural community associations or church and religious groups; Ties to local business organizations like the Chamber of Commerce, or social groups like Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs; Ties to bowling, pool, or hockey leagues and other sports teams; and knowledge of any upcoming local events that we should attend, from bake sales and bazaars to festivals and major gatherings.

If you can help with any of the above, please email Volunteer Coordinator Julie Cousins at

You should also email if you can help with traditional campaign activities, including:

      Knocking on doors
      Making phone calls
      Installing signs
      Delivering campaign literature to people’s houses
      Doing data-entry
      Getting out the vote on election day (including hosting, running, or working out of a home centre.)

If there’s one message we want to share above all, it’s this: That Liberal candidate Grant Gordon is the true local candidate best able to fight for jobs, pensions and opportunity for the people of Toronto-Danforth.

So please repeat this message every chance you get, on Twitter, on Facebook and whenever you talk to friends, family and neighbours about the campaign in Toronto-Danforth.
We’re in this together – and together we can win.

Thank you.

Bob Rae
