YAP #4 
(en francais)


I forgot to put up the new YAP poll yesterday.

This weeks is designed to stimulate a little more discussion. This is a topic that will be debated quite a bit over the next while, until the next policy convention of the party.

Personally, I'm against having a separate youth wing. Our own campaign locally is full of youth and they are all integrated into the campaign. The Campaign Manager, Organization Manager(GOTV), and Communications Manager would all be considered youth under the various models being proposed. Under the traditional youth wing model, I don't believe any of these people would be holding the positons that they do. They would never be given the opportunity.

Most people know of the potential abuse/misuse of youth wings during leadership campaigns. This is something I would not want to see repeated in the CPC.

I think the number of young MPs we currently have in our caucus speaks volumes for inviting everyone to sit at the same table, instead of segregating the youth at the kiddie table.

Just my 2 cents.
