The Town Hall Phone Call that 100’s missed

If you missed out on the Town Hall Telephone call on May 11 I am able to now offer it to you.

I have to warn all listeners that I only thought of doing this as the conversation started so the quality is very poor. It was recorded by a cell phone sitting beside the ear piece.  This means there are some occasional background noises.

I did ask Anna and Simon for a quality copy however, first I was told “No, we don’t have a recording of the call to distribute.” Then I was told they didn’t have one at all. So this seems to be the best there is for the almost 2000 delegates who were not part of the call. Please understand, any silent parts or problems with recording are solely mine and my responsibility.


My first campaign was in 1972 in Scarborough East for Martin O'Connell. We weren't successful that time, however, 2 years later we were and Martin went off to join Trudeau the Elder in Ottawa, ultimately as a Cabinet Minister. I have played various roles in the party since then with one over riding consideration. I have always considered myself a Liberal. At times I found my loyalty tested by behaviour within the party, other times my pride swelled. However, this power grab by a few unelected individuals at the top of the power cannot go unchallenged.
