The man who managed Adrian Dix's successful campaign to become leader of the provincial New Democrats is backing Brian Topp's bid to lead the federal New Democrats. Gerry Scott confirmed that support in an interview with Public Eye, saying he's working as a volunteer on Mr. Topp's team. Mr. Scott distributed an email yesterday inviting party members to attend a Wednesday pub night with the leadership candidate. The following is a complete copy of that email.

Subject: Brian Topp Campaign for NDP Leader
I am sending this email to many NDP activists in the Greater Vancouver area. Please feel free to circulate it more widely.
As you probably know, today Brian Topp declared his intention to seek the federal NDP leadership.
You are invited to meet Brian and hear what he has to say at a press conference Tuesday morning in Vancouver. There is also an opportunity to share a beverage with him at the Railway Club on Wednesday evening.
If you have any questions about these events, please feel free to forward them my way.
I hope to see you and your friends at both of these events.
