I much enjoyed the Rally at Peter Milczyn’s Campaign HQ at 10:00 am on Saturday, July 20, 2013. There was a great turnout and great speakers – Laurel Broten, Peter Milczyn and Premier Kathleen Wynne.
I found the Rally and the subsequent Canvasing highly energizing and enjoyable.
I was delighted to see the wide range of ages among the volunteers – including a large number of energetic and enthusiastic volunteers in their twenties and thirties.
Canvassing at 1300 Islington Ave.
After the Rally, I joined Dick and Heather, whom I met for the first time today, for a canvass of the top floors at 1300 Islington Ave. This is a beautiful two-tower condo building near the corner of Dundas Street West and Islington Avenue not far from Montgomery’s Inn. Dick has a lot of experience as a canvasser; he quickly brought the rest of the team up to speed on the fine points of effective and efficient canvassing.
