The Liberal Party adopted a new Constitution at its Biennial Convention last May in Winnipeg.
The Liberal Party of Canada (Ontario) (LPC(O)) has been tasked with developing new by-laws (read the FAQ) to implement the constitution and is consulting registered Liberals in Ontario to get their input.
There are a couple of ways that you can provide your input:
- You can share your ideas by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- You can attend the Southwest Ontario consultation meeting on Aug. 28th in London. Click here to RSVP.
To help you get started thinking about your input on the by-laws, here are a number of “starter questions”:
- How will Registration work?
- How can somebody stay registered?
- How do we handle removing names of people who want to leave?
- Should Registered Liberals need to verify that they want to register?
- What works and does not work in the current policy process?
- What needs to change and where do we wish to be in 2018?
- What are some new ideas we should consider from other jurisdictions?
- What are some creative solutions we can learn and implement from our own history?
- How do Commission clubs fit into the process?
- What works and does not work with Commission Clubs now?
- What is the future role of Commissions in the Policy process?
- What do we do about Commission clubs which are jointly Federal and Provincial associations?
- How do we fit Commission Clubs into EDAs, or should they be separate?
