POLITICS AS USUAL: TAKING THE "CLU[E]" OUT OF INCLUSIVE
I'm not there, but a close friend is. She is a member of the Conservative Party of Canada, but is there as an observer for her company.
The Convention organizers are not allowing her to look at the policy resolutions because she is not a delegate.
How do you create the idea that the Party has a "hidden agenda"?
Step 1: Craft resolutions that focus on controversial issues like abortion, same sex marriage, the death penalty and immigration.
Step 2: Talk about it in the media, through e-mails and internal Party memos.
Step 3: But don't actually let anyone see what you're talking about and try to be as exclusive on policy discussions as possible.
Its sure is a big tent, people. There just aren't any doors to get in.
