More than 300 happy Liberals and friends enjoyed perfect summer weather at Lake Ontario Park for our annual Liberal summer BBQ.
This, more than any of our previous summer BBQs, was truly a family event. Kids enjoyed two bouncy castles, a cotton candy machine, face painting and designing/making their own lapel buttons.
The food was terrific, though the unexpectedly large turnout required us to scramble to buy more when we started to run out of hamburgers, potato salad, etc. Ted Hsu, Sophie Kiwala and Mark Gerretsen all took their turns flipping burgers and many of our attendees lined up to have pictures taken with them.
Ted, Sophie and Mark all spoke eloquently to enthusiastic applause above keeping Kingston Liberal and each of us doing our part to first halt and then reverse the severe damage that a decade with Mr. Harper at the helm has been doing to the Canada we love.
All in all, a great kick-off to the election campaign.
