Trudeau-loving Liberals flooded Montreal from Feb.20–23 for the party’s bi-annual convention. Among them were the University of Calgary Liberals. The club went east to try to pass motions and show that the Liberals are alive in Alberta.
“We were one of the largest university delegations there,” said UCL president Vincent St.Pierre.
While there, UCL pushed policies on thorium and electoral reform. The UCL’s Elections Canada Empowerment Resolution made it through all the necessary motions and is now a official party policy.
“The resolution started here at the U of C,” St.Pierre said.“We got a lot of help from the delegates in Quebec on that one.”
