On Friday, the provincial New Democrat's Gucci socialists will be paying $99 to attend the Vancouver Lonsdale and Seymour constituency associations' first annual Carole Cruise with party leader Carole James. That cruise is being held aboard MV Britannia, which will be renamed the Carole Ship for the duration of the event. The price of admission includes a buffet dinner featuring everything from smoked oyster toasts with roasted red peppers to garden fresh vegetable crudites. But that's not all. According to the event's promotional brochure, "comedic singers will be on hand to sing satirical songs about Gordon Campbell and his minions. Auction items will include a Gordon Campbell dartboard - not available for sale anywhere else" with the proceeds going to "help the North Shore NDP build their war chest with the goal of electing a NDP MLA in Lonsdale." Hmmm...things seem to be getting personal. The following is a copy of that brochure.
Come Join Carole On Friday, November 26, for an evening of fun and festivities aboard the MV Britannia
The North Vancouver Lonsdale and Seymour Constituency Associations proudly present the First Annual Carole Cruise. This fundraiser will help the North Shore NDP build their war chest with the goal of electing a NDP MLA in Lonsdale. The event will include: a great dinner buffet, socializing with NDP'ers from around the lower mainland, spending time with Carole, listening to live jazz, and having some fun at the Liberals expense.
Do your Christmas shopping early, by buying some fantastic items at the silent and live auctions. Tickets are $99 and include a $49 tax receipt. For reserve tickets, please use the handy form in this brochure.
A fantastic opportunity to talk with Carole and mingle with New Democrats from around Vancouver. In the spirit of the Christmas season, we are going on a Carol Ship - not just any Carol Ship - we're going to be on THE Carole Ship. As we listen to live jazz and eat from a varied buffet menu, we can discuss the joys of the season - specifically getting ready to elect a NDP government in May 2005. This will also be a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the outcome of the Surrey-Panorama Ridge By-Election. Comedic singers will be on hand to sing satirical songs about Gordon Campbell and his minions. Auction items will include a Gordon Campbell dartboard - not available for sale anywhere else. So come on board and get ready for the best NDP Party of the year - the 2004 Carole Cruise!
